Faces of Salvia

Meet Kambiz, our Senior Reliability Engineer


“I love my job. I get to work with the latest technologies in the medical field and…I get to break them.” This is how Kambiz Nanbakhsh playfully characterizes his role as a Senior Reliability Engineer. And as amusing as it may sound, he's right. His role is crucial, as the only way to ensure your product is truly dependable is by subjecting it to extensive testing – testing, and more testing.

Kambiz has been immersed in the field of neuromodulation for a decade. Before joining Salvia, he had the chance to work at Sapiens, a "very bold" startup he admired, via a program of the Eindhoven University of Technology. Sapiens was a remarkable spinoff from Philips, aimed at bringing more comfort to the lives of Parkinson's patients through neuromodulation. "Sapiens fearlessly ventured into the neuromodulation field with advanced technology, redefining the limits of what was once considered impossible.” And that inspired Kambiz. Ultimately, the company was taken over by Medtronic, where the technology was further matured.

During his time at Sapiens, Kambiz had the pleasure of getting to know colleagues Hubert Martens, Daniel Schobben and Wim Pollet, and through them, he discovered that they were brewing up a new novel concept. They recognized the potential relief that neuromodulation could bring to people and weren’t done innovating.

So, when Salvia was established in 2017, Kambiz didn't hesitate to join the company through a collaboration with Delft University of Technology. "I knew the team, and Hubert's burning passion for integrating technology into the medical industry is genuinely inspiring. He's a true trailblazer – and that inspires me to be bold as well."

"What unites Salvia with Sapiens is the shared mission of helping people through technology, and that's what truly excites me."

Kambiz takes immense pride in the fact that Salvia has already come to the aid of its first patients in clinical trials. "We've poured our heart and soul into reaching this milestone, and there are exciting achievements waiting on the horizon.”

Kambiz's role is to meticulously oversee every aspect of testing, refinement, more testing, and further refinement. "When everything proceeds seamlessly, we elevate the complexity of the tests. My presence here is to bring confidence and foster unwavering design reliability."

This is where he truly thrives.

Page Title (H1)

Header (H2)

A subheading or chapter heading (H3)

Introductory text or a first paragraph of information on this subject. Write as naturally as possible and be nice and specific. If necessary, use AI software to help you get started, but definitely don't use it one-on-one. Search engines can penalize AI content.

Subheading (H4)

Here too there is more than enough room for a good story, an interesting article or background information. If necessary, use a summary:

  • a summary is clear
  • one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  • also use search terms if necessary

Another topic (H3)

Another subheading (H4)

Do not use a Title Header (H1), but use an H2 Header instead. An H1 is actually a title of the page and may only appear once on a web page. The H2 is a kind of chapter and the other headers (H3 to H6) are subheadings and subheadings within the chapter. The order is important for the readability of visitors and search engines.

  1. a summary is clear
  2. one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  3. also use search terms if necessary

This way everything remains easy to read and understandable for the reader. People can also scroll directly to the topic they are interested in.

Paragraph heading style (H5)

This is another example of a heading. The headings H5 and H6 are usually used as paragraph headings, each with their own style.

Paragraph heading style (H6)

In the editor you can really see a difference in font size of all headers, but on the live website they have their own style.

Other options

Use a "quote". That looks like this:

This is a quote!

You can also put texts in bold, italic, etc.
Of maak een link naar een andere pagina of website.
And finally, you can also create Superscript(1) and Subscript(2) text.
