I dreamt of being an inventor as a child, grew up experimenting with technology and co-founded Mendeley, the world's largest platform for scientific research, after graduating from university. Mendeley was named the company 'most likely to change the world for the better’ by the Guardian in 2010. I think we've changed a lot, but we're not done yet! It's an incredible exciting time to work on research products and researcher workflows, especially when you are into product management. I'm passionate about digital product development, ideally working on the kind of products which benefit society and/or transform an industry. Together with my two co-founders, I was named "European Founders of the Year 2013" by TechCrunch / The Europas.
