Meet the Team

Hey, glad to see your interest in us! Here are the people who create EpiSense.


Aditya Badola
22, MSc Bioinformatics

Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the idea of helping others through technology. Being able to use computer science and biology at a platform like SensUs is the most interesting project I have been a part of hitherto, and I hope to contribute as a bioinformatician along with my passionate team members.

Laurens Goyvaerts 
21, MSc Biomedical Engineering

Having an impact on the world and improving the life quality of people has always been one of my life goals.  I look forward to working alongside our multidisciplinary team with the same mindset and drive for innovation in this quest of designing a biosensor for epilepsy. Learning from my teammates as well as challenging myself to develop my engineering skills with a hands-on project really intrigues me, so I think that exciting times lie ahead for me in this research project. 

Marina Ventouratou
24, MSc Bioscience Engineering: Cellular and Genetic Engineering

I am a Chemical Engineer currently pursuing a postgraduate degree in Cellular and Genetic Engineering at the Bioscience Engineering Faculty of KU Leuven. I was always fascinated by the exceptional advances in the area of biomedical research and I was hoping that I would someday be able to make my own little contribution to the development of this field. This is the reason I applied to this master’s degree and the reason I applied to the SensUs competition. I am very happy and honoured to be part of a project with such a strong societal impact. I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge, applying and testing my skills in practice and working alongside students that share the same passion.

Yanjing Li
20, BSc Biochemical Engineering

Making contributions to the society has been a dream for me since I decided to choose Biochemistry as my major. As soon as I knew there’s a chance of Biosensor Competition, I joined that without any hesitation. I firmly believe that a good biosensor underlies effective treatment of Epilepsy, which is a worldwide neuron disease. During the process of producing a valproic acid biosensor, some more advanced skills of designing and creating are accessible to me. Moreover, I can actually do something meaningful to make our society better.

Torben Roy
22, MSc Bioscience Engineering in Bio-nanotechnology

I always had a keen interest in science and experimenting, and while getting older and going to university I discovered I want to become a researcher. SensUs is to me the perfect opportunity to get closer to that goal and work on a project with ambitious social impact. Making a biosensor will require a lot of teamwork and learning in a lot of fields. I am really looking forward to the whole experience and making the best biosensor possible.

Minerva Corrales 
20, Erasmus Student, BSc Biology

I’ve always been interested in biomedical research. My main goal is become a dedicated scientist and learn as much as I can. My inquisitiveness in the science field has been present ever since I can remember. As a biologist, I would like to use my knowledge to contribute to society. SensUs provides us the opportunity to develop a biosensor that can help a lot of people and at the same time it will give us teamwork skills and for sure an experience we´ll never forget!

Roozbeh Yazdanpanah
23, Erasmus Mundus Master of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

I have always been looking to broaden my knowledge and to implement that knowledge in novel applications, which lead me to the interdisciplinary field of Nanotechnology. And now, SensUs provides me with the opportunity to further pursue this passion in a creative and practical environment.

Gabriela Rath
23, Erasmus Mundus Master of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

The experiences of my life raised two passions: research and social impact. SensUs provides me the opportunity to unite these two passions in a very innovative way. I believe that personalized medicine with the use of biosensors is the most effective way to improve people’s lives. I am thrilled to be able to use my knowledge in Chemistry and Nanomedicine to perform research with a positive impact.

Sruja Dave
Masters in Nanoscience, Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering

I have always been interested in developing new products, and SensUs is the platform where I can work on developing biosensors  and also learn new things from the supporting fields. I want to enhance my knowledge in the development of sensors, to help society in a better way and equip myself new ideas to eliminate some of the problems of society.

Ine Mols
22, Msc Biomedical sciences

I have always been interested in science and especially in the functioning of the human body. That is why I chose to study biomedical sciences, to make this passion useful and help people. SensUs is the perfect opportunity to make this a reality. Being part of the SensUs team gives me the chance to put my knowledge into practice and to learn from my teammates from other disciplines. I am really looking forward to working together with the team on this unforgettable experience.

Chinmay Pendse
23, Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

With a background in instrumentation engineering and a keen interest in biology, I have always been fascinated by the interdisciplinary applications of science through technology; this motivated me to join my current nano master programme. As a part of the SensUs team, I hope to learn and grow with my peers from different fields, and work with them to solve important societal problems, one biosensor at a time!
