Dr Katia Nazmutdinova

CEO and Co-founder

Prior to her scientific training, Katia ran a video transfer services company in the US, which was sold for a profit in 2007 and exists to this day. A question, "What makes us human?” prompted her to study Human Genetics for almost a decade in UCL, London. After obtaining her PhD and concluding that other humans make us human, she returned to the commercial world, launching Encelo.
