Who is who…?! – New team members at Brain Products

by Stefanie Rudrich
Marketing Manager (Brain Products)

Having a qualified, reliable and committed team is a key factor for staying successful as a company. Just like continuously successful sports teams are proud of their “new signings”, we are proud of ours and would like to briefly introduce our newest team members to you.

Sales: Ismael Gaxiola-Valdez, M.Sc.

Ismael Gaxiola-Valdez, M.Sc. is the newest Scientific Consultant in our Sales Team and joined Brain Products in March 2018. Among others he will be involved in our direct sales activities as well as support our certified distributors with words and deeds in theirs. Of course, you – our customers – will have plenty of opportunities to meet Ismael in person – e.g. at conferences, product demonstrations and workshops.

Ismael has a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada). The topic of his master thesis was “Resolving the Discrepancy between BOLD and CBF fMRI to Reliably Investigate Resting-State Functional Connections“.

Before starting at Brain Products, Ismael was a Research Assiciate at the Seaman Family MR Centre – Foothills Hospital (in Calgary, Alberta, Canada). Working in the lab of Dr. Paolo Federico (Epilepsy Research) he not only has a lot of experience conducting and analyzing EEG and fMRI data himself, but also designed, coordinated and supervised various EEG and fMRI studies.

Being a skilled researcher with an outstanding technical background and longtime experience in the EEG / fMRI field, we are happy to have Ismael on board!

R&D - Production: Renata Strasser

Also, Renata Strasser joined Brain Products recently and is strengthening our Production team.

Besides supporting our Production team in all tasks related to assembling products and related components, Renata is also involved in the thorough testing process that components and products manufactured by Brain Products undergo.

Renata has been supporting Brain Products as a temporary worker in the past already and gathered a lot of experience in the daily business of the Brain Products’ Production department during that time. Now, we can finally welcome her as a full member of the team and are happy to welcome her on board!
