Meet Our Team
Urs earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering at ETH Zurich before moving to at IBM Research, where he did a postdoc on mixed-signal circuit design. Later, Urs was heading an independent laboratory focusing on CMOS-based bioelectronics and biosensors at RIKEN, Japan. During the past 15 years he has built up considerable experience in project and people management. Urs is the innovator of the “switch-matrix” architecture of our microelectrode arrays.
Jan obtained his PhD from ETH Zurich (D-BSSE). He has an interdisciplinary background in computer science, electrical engineering, systems biology and computational neuroscience.
Marie ObienVP Marketing and Sales
Marie earned her PhD in Electrical Engineering from NAIST, Japan, and obtained her training in neuroscience as a postdoctoral researcher at RIKEN, Japan.
Michele FiscellaVP Scientific Affairs
Michele Fiscella is the Vice President, Scientific Affairs at MaxWell Biosystems and a member of the founding team. Michele is an expert in retina physiology, neuroscience and biotechnology with strong skills in electrophysiology techniques and statistics applied to biological data and analysis/modeling of neural signals. He discovered the physiological role of a gene involved in a human disease of vision, by MEA technology.
Michele obtained his Master in Molecular and Industrial Biotechnology from University of Bologna and his PhD degree from ETH Zurich.
