About Us

Consumers want to know
what they EAT

Our Mission

Chemometric Brain was born the day a group of experts from various disciplines of analytical science, each with many years’ experience in the field of investigation, decided to channel all of their passion and expertise towards developing a software that might guarantee traceability, in the world of food and nutrition.

Our main mission is to make the use of spectroscopic techniques accessible to any food industry, while applying the experience and knowledge acquired over the past 15 years. We aim to facilitate implementation of said techniques via simple analyses, drawn from our extensive powder-product libraries, in order to provide day-one results in any segment of the food industry; and, as a result, to be able to ensure full traceability, within the value chain, allowing companies to offer end-consumers food that is ever more transparent, fairer, safer and healthier, too.

OUR VISION

Traceability, throughout the entire food industry value chain; from the source producer, to the end-consumer’s table.

VALUES

We are committed both to transparency and to increasing food safety, within the industry.

END CONSUMER

We want all end-consumers to have access to food products that are transparent, fair, safe and healthy.

Our team

Dr. Beatriz Carrasco Gómez

Chemometric Brain CTO
Beatriz has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Murcia University, Spain (1998) as well as an Honorary PhD in Chemistry Award, at the same university (1998). Beatriz continued her work at Murcia University for 2 years, during which time she published more than 30 scientific articles. In 2001, she worked as a quality and software consultant in the private sector then, in 2004, joined Blendhub (formerly: Premium Ingredients). Blendhub is a multinational ingredients provider delivering the world’s first global food production-center network, offering a fully comprehensive solution for the design, mixing and delivery of food powders and nutrition, both to the industry and to end-consumers. Beatriz ran the Quality Control team for 4 years and, having implemented food safety systems in different continents, was promoted to Director of Global Quality where she was responsible of the Analytical Innovation and Chemometrics Unit applying her 10 years’ experience in the use of NIRS to authenticating raw materials and end-products. While Director of Global Quality, Beartiz created the concept and then developed Chemometric Brain®: an industry-tailored software, whose main function is to conduct powder-product quality and content analyses (both on pure powders and on blends) as well as homogeneity studies, whereby to establish optimum mixing times for specific mix cycle. In January 2020, she was appointed Chemometric Brain, Managing Director.

Dr. Sara Chumillas Lidón

Chemometric Brain Specialist
PhD in Physcal Chemistry (2017) and Bachelor´s degree in Chemistry from the University of Alicante. More than 6 years of experience (2010-2017) in R&D of electronic and transfer processes of biological molecules with different degrees of complexity. During this time my job was focus on studying the behavior of biological molecules and redox enzymes, using electrochemistry as a main discipline of study. I have extensive experience in handling spectroscopic techniques such as Infrared (FTIR), Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-Vis) and Raman spectroscopy. I developed my research work at the University of Alicante (Spain) and the University of Bern (Switzerland). As a result of my research stage, I have several scientific publications in specialized journals of international scope. From 2018 to 2020 I have worked at Bioithas SL company which is dedicated to the study of the human microbiome and the development of food supplements (probiotics). The main tasks that I have performed at this company have been the search and contact with suppliers of raw materials for the development and finishing of products, the drafting of scientific-technical proposals to finance R&D activities and the management of requests for collaboration with research institutes and companies for the implementation and control of the addressed projects.

Mr. Geoff Carss

Chief Growth Officer
Holds an B.Sc (London) and M.Sc (Sheffield) in Geology and an MBA from Kingston University. He has worked in a series of Management Consulting and Sales Management roles in organisations such as EY (Ernst & Young), IBM and Oracle as well as smaller organisations such as the Innovation software and consultancy Imaginatik. He has worked in many parts of the world including New Zealand, Sweden and is based in the UK.

Ms. Nuria Navarro García

Chemometric Brain Specialist
Nuria has a B.Sc in Biotechnology (2013) and a M.Sc in Biotechnology and Biology of Plant Stress (2014) from the University of Murcia. She worked for 7 years at the Institute of Agriculture and Food Research and Development of Murcia (IMIDA), where she specialized in Citrus Breeding. During that period, she developed new research lines in that department, becoming the chief of the Citrus Molecular Biology team. She also implemented new genetic techniques such as detection of alleles by KASP technology, genomes analysis from NGS sequences, development of new molecular markers or in silico design of specific primers and their experimental validation. Along her career, she has published several scientific articles in high-impact journals, both national and international, and has attended numerous conferences, being a member of the Organizing Committee of the IX Congress of Plant Breeding held in 2018. In order to keep herself constantly updated, she has taken many training courses in specialized techniques applied to research and development. Apart from her research career, she has also participated in several teaching activities such as supervising Chemistry, Biology or Biochemistry intern students from different Spanish and foreign universities or coordinating research projects carried out by high school students from the IDIES program. In June 2020, she joins the Chemometric Brain team.

Mr. Alberto Gil Ballesta

Chemometric Brain Developer
An Engineer in Computer Science, at the Computer Science Faculty at Murcia University (specialty: Information Systems) he developed his End of Degree Project on the implementation and deployment of Big Data infrastructures on Docker. He has extensive experience in mathematical programming languages (Matlab and R), application development in Java, C#/.NET, Javascript, jQuery, Python and management of Microsoft SQL Server databases.

Mr. Jose Ayllón Benítez​

Chemometric Brain Developer Intern
Computer Science Student at University of Murcia, enthusiastic developer where he have experience in languajes like Java, C++…, also know about R and Matlab and worked in program monitoring services.
