Sam Lounis De Brouwer graduated in Art History and Philosophy in Paris to join the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, an Amsterdam-based university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design. She moved to Brussels in the midst of the internet exuberance to set up one of the first online recruitment companies ‘Jobscape’ which was merged into Stepstone. In the mid-nineties she became part of the initial Starlab team and ran the sponsorship department, that was her first experience with the MIT MediaLab. From 2001 until 2004, she was the director of the National Institute for Teleworkers in Belgium that designed the first micro-entrepreneurship courses in Europe together with the University of Antwerpen and the European Social Fund. She served as the Advocacy Director of the One Laptop Per Child Foundation Europe, in Brussels from 2008 until 2011 and started in parallel the TEDxBrussels conference in 2009 , which first edition took place at the European Parliament and is holding its 5th edition this year. Sam is the Co-Founder of Scanadu Inc., a Silicon Valley based medical devices company developing among others the medical tricorder.

For ResearchTalks 6, Sam will explore with us the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of Scanadu. She will also show us the device at the end of the talks.
