Paula Muller, Founder of Sociavi, has a lifelong passion for technology applied to healthcare, starting with her M.S. in Biomedical Engineering in Chile working with blind people, then her work in Switzerland analyzing EEGs to prevent epileptic attacks, followed by her Ph.D. and Post-doc work at Rutgers with Parkinson patients, and most recently at Authentidate with Telehealth products and services.
Paula has a vast experience in technology and software development through her engineering positions at several companies like Sirus|XM satellite radio, Net-Scale Technologies and Authentidate, among others, and she has extensive management experience through senior positions at Net-Scale Technologies and Authentidate.
The business idea for Sociavi evolved from her professional background as well as her strong commitment to family relations and lifetime connections. Thus SOCIAVI, coming from the latin word “share” and “unite”, was born with the goal of keeping seniors and their families closer together.
