Dr Farzaneh Ahmadi
Founder & CEO of Laronix
TOPIC : Laronix – “The Bionic Voice”
Dr Farzaneh Ahmadi is a scientist, engineer, inventor and entrepreneur who first came across the field of voice cloning while completing her PhD in Singapore. But for all of the technology’s promise, Farzaneh also felt frustrated by having to turn away patients that came to her group seeking practical solutions rather than abstract research.
Since then, Farzaneh has dedicated much of her professional life to the challenge of adapting this technology to restore the voices of laryngectomy patients. In 2019 that dream came one step closer as Farzaneh became the founder and CEO of Laronix, a spinout company based on her research.
