Team

Formed while in the M.S. Innovation and Management program at Tufts University. We started developing the business in September 2018, working with technology that has been developed for a few years from the Electrical Engineering Department at Tufts University.

Jake Lombardo
B.S. Biomedical Engineering | M.S. Innovation & Management
Jake has experience with the medical device design process, with previous projects optimizing the hemodialysis process. His athletic background provides strong relationships with physical therapists that will be integral in spreading early awareness. He is currently focused on navigating the FDA process and bridging health requirements with technology development. He is a graduate of Union College (Schenectady, NY) with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, where he was captain of his collegiate football team.

Konstantinos Tzortzakis
B.S., M.S. Electrical Engineering | M.S. Innovation & Management
Konstantinos has both his B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, concentrating in Systems and Electronics. He previously worked as an Electrical Engineer at GordiaNet and as a Computer Engineer at the OTE Group. His vast engineering experience has translated into strong financial abilities, as Konstantinos is leading Finances and Fundraising. During his time in Greece, he was a competitive water polo player.

Lulu Li
B.S. Biology, Minor: Computer Science | M.S. Innovation & Management
Lulu is a graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where she focused on computational genomics with the NCSA. She has experience with conducting behavioral research with children and adults, which has led her to validating consumer behavior, needs, and usage for Hero Patch. Her prior leadership positions within different philanthropic groups has translated to developing the marketing, media outreach, and developing sales plans. She also enjoys playing tennis and rock-climbing.

Hojat Rezaei
B.S., M.S. Mechanical Engineering | Ph.D. Mech Eng Microfluidics
Hojat is a professional computer scientist and programmer since 2005, where he has developed several computational tools and programs to simulate physics at nano/micro/mesoscale. He has 10 years of experience in particle and fluid physics with 8 years in chip devices and micro/nanofabrication techniques. He is motivated by new biotechnologies with the potential to impact human health, and has accomplished his postdoctoral studies with Harvard Medical School, MIT, and Tufts University.
