Passionate by the combination of Medicine and Technology I obtained my PhD in Laser-Tissue Interaction applied to clinical-transactional projects in ophthalmology and dermatology. I worked for different companies in Lausanne and Lugano before starting the adventure with Oculox Technologies in 2012.
