A former software and algorithm engineer for Genentech, now CEO of Knox Medical Diagnostics, Charvi’s passion is in examining clinical needs and identifying areas in which engineering design can improve the quality of medical care. Her efforts to build a better asthma monitoring tool recently lead her to be nominated by the Kairos Society, an international organization that supports the development of entrepreneurs worldwide, as one of the top 50 young entrepreneurs under 50 aiming to change the world.

In April 2015, the young change-maker presented her project during the Leadership Program organized by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (CRI-Paris).
