He has joined Mag4Health for contributing to both technical and reglementary tasks which will allow our MEG to become a widespread clinical tool.

Emilie Viey

CBO - Innovative technologyEmilie has a background in Immunology/Cancer and biotech. After her PhD from the University Paris XI, she joined Roche Diagnostics France where she made her first steps in Life Sciences Lab equipment. She, then, strengthened her expertise in product development and commercialization of innovative devices for research, process development and manufacturing by joining small biotechs and start-ups.
After a position of CEO at Ovizio Imaging Systems, she decided to join Mag4health for contributing to the business development activities of their brain imaging system for clinical purpose.

Rudy Romain

PhD - PhysicistRudy worked during 10 years on atomic physics and laser-cooling-based quantum technologies in academic labs in France and in the UK. During his stay at the CEA-Leti, he familiarized himself with the field of magnetometry and its medical applications. He has now taken charge of the integration and operation of our MEG system.

Sergey Mitryukovskiy

PhD - Expert in laser and opticsSergey has a strong expertise in the field of optics and laser science. He gained his PhD from Ecole Polytechnique and has more than 10 years of experience in fundamental science, but his real passion is the transformation of a scientific idea into a real-life application. Sergey leads the industrialization of our sensors and designs their most complex mechanical parts.

Aude Engelhardt

Electronics engineerAude holds a double engineering degree from Cergy-ENSEA electronics engineering school and University College of Cork. She spent several years designing electronic products and managing technical projects in the industry. She joined Mag4Health as Electronics and Embedded Software Engineer, with the primary goal of industrializing our electronic system.

Gaël Vila

PhD - Data Processing Engineer

Gaël holds a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering and conducted his PhD research on physiological data processing for mental state assessment. His recent work on computational reproducibility of neuroimaging pipelines has sharpened his skills in software design for brain science. He is now involved in processing our MEG data for clinical applications.

Adrien Petit

FGPA Engineer

Adrien holds an engineering degree specializing in digital electronics and has acquired expertise over several years in the avionics and space industries, including companies like Sagem and Airbus. His experience also includes time spent in research, reflecting his keen interest in advanced scientific knowledge. At Mag4Health, Adrien is dedicated to improving FPGA solutions.

Alexandre Stathopulos

Quantum Sensor Development PhysicistAlexandre holds a bachelor degree in Electronics and Complex Systems Engineering from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Rennes along with a Master's degree in Plasma and Fusion Physics from Université Paris-Saclay. He conducted his PhD on characterizing the terahertz emissivity of an atmospheric plasma. This work enhanced his computational and analytical skills on multi-physics problems. He is now in charge of refining the sensitivity of the quantum captors of our MEG.

Mélanie Vanden-Maagdenberg

Production Methods Engineer

Mélanie graduated as a biomedical and health engineer in September 2023. She completed her diploma as an apprentice in a start-up developing IVDs. This experience gave her an in-depth understanding of how start-ups work, as well as providing valuable immersion in the healthcare sector. On the strength of this initial experience, Mélanie joined Mag4health as a production methods engineer. Her main task is to prepare the company for the industrialization of medical devices, in order to facilitate their large-scale production. .

Achraf Oufqir

MEG Installation Engineer

Achraf had a degree in health device engineering and a professional degree in biomedical science. He has worked in different medical structures (CHR, CHP, CHU, regional health delegation). Its missions consisted of ensuring maintenance, purchasing, and quality studies on various medical devices. He worked on different technologies as a researcher and developer at INSERM in Paris and other research structures for several years. He applied spontaneously for the installation engineer job at Mag4Health.

Gladys Besse

Office ManagerGladys has a degree in administration and management. She is an office manager for 3 years. On a daily basis, she works on the management of the company, human resources issues, administrative issues and purchasing. She shows her ability to adapt to everyday life.
