Chief Scientific Officer

Carolina Bessega

Carolina Bessega, PhD

Carolina combines an entrepreneurial mindset alongside 20+ years of experience in research, development and broad programming. She began her career by obtaining her PhD in fundamental physics, eventually becoming an award-winning professor and researcher. She was also appointed by the Venezuelan Science and Technology Ministry as the coordinator of the national program for graduate students in her field.

This led her to become the Director of the Nonlinear Phenomena Lab, where in collaboration with other professors, graduates and undergraduate students applied different machine learning techniques, including neural networks, to various social issues.

Her meteoric rise as Chief Scientific Officer and her extensive experience working in machine learning now allows her to work alongside renowned advisors and business pioneers in order to continuously create, innovate, and develop new technologies that solve real-world problems.
