Ariel is the Founder of InteraXon, makers of Muse, which is the award-winning brain-sensing headband that takes the guesswork out of meditation.

Ariel studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto and worked in labs at Toronto’s Krembil Neuroscience Centre researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. No mere science nerd, Ariel is a fashion designer whose clothing opened Toronto Fashion Week in '03, and has had her work displayed at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Ariel’s uncommon combination of science and art is integral to the design of Muse and to InteraXon’s unique approach to brain-sensing technology. Ariel was also a therapist in private practice.

Ariel and her team are merging technology, neuroscience, art and design. Ariel and Muse have been featured in CNN, Forbes, Popular Science, CNET, CNBC, VentureBeat, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal Tech and more, for creating what Huffington Post calls "the beautiful headband that will make you smarter".

As well as her full-time position at Muse, Ariel keynotes around the world on technology, mindfulness, and entrepreneurship.

She’s pushing the boundaries of what’s possible by fusing art and neurotech, and in so doing is making all of us calmer, smarter, and happier.
