    Welcome to the Richmond Alake Podcast. 

    This week I’m speaking with Eva Esteban.

    Join us for an exciting and informative podcast episode with Eva Esteban, an Embedded Software Engineer at OpenBCI who is on the cutting edge of developing biosensors integrated with VR headsets. Eva shares her wealth of experience working on the development of firmware and software for Galea, a VR headset with biosensor integration that includes EEG, EMG, EDA, PPG, and eye-tracking.

    In addition, Eva is an Emerging Tech Mentor at The Knowledge Society, where she guides 13-17-year-old students through projects in the fields of neurotechnology, mixed reality, and machine learning. 

    Eva is also the Co-Founder of Unipeers, a non-profit community of graduate alumni, students, and prospective students from top US universities, where she has recruited over 200 members and volunteers in the first 2 months.

    Eva's impressive background includes a Master of Engineering degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell Tech and a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronic Engineering with Computer Systems from the University of Surrey. Her technical experience includes working on projects such as a mind-controlled wheel for a wheelchair prototype using EEG sensing and Arduino, a Force Sensor-based device to improve body posture, and a Machine Learning search engine using Python, among others.

    Don't miss out on this fascinating conversation with Eva as she shares her experiences, insights, and perspectives on technology, engineering, and entrepreneurship. Tune in to gain a deeper understanding of the world of biosensors, neurotechnology, and mixed reality, and the ways in which they are transforming our lives.
