Mandy Salomon, PhD | CEO
Mandy Salomon draws upon an extensive body of work across film, television, radio, theater and print media. Prior to her doctoral studies, she was senior researcher at Smart Services Cooperative Research Centre, helping education, government, and media sectors think strategically about emerging digital practices. Her Ph.D (2012-2016) investigated ways to break down the digital divide for people with moderate to advanced dementia. The resulting method led to DEVA. Mandy is an active member of the Aging 2.0 Alliance and volunteers at the Jewish Home of San Francisco.
“My commitment to DEVA stems from the high level of interaction the app promotes, the duration that people spend with the app, and the empathic exchanges with the care partners when playing it”
