CTO (Neuroscience + AI Venture)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin

What we do
Neuroscience research has been growing rapidly over the last decade, bringing many new research insights, tools, and technologies that will transform our lives in the coming years. One of the most promising applications of these insights is understanding mental health conditions in terms of the underlying brain processes they impact. This allows us to develop individualistic, hyper-personalized interventions that focus on improving the affected brain processes within an individual instead of stopping at psychological support.

Addera Health is an early-stage startup building a chatbot-based AI coach to provide hyper-personalized support for individuals struggling with ADHD symptoms at clinical or subclinical levels. We are on a journey to become the world's most effective mental health solution for ADHD - a rapidly growing mental health concern all over the world.
