Franziska Broell

Dr. Franziska Broell is the CEO of Motryx. Franziska co-founded the company as Maritime bioLoggers during her PhD research in oceanography at Dalhousie University when she and her co-founder Andre Bezanson developed a device to measure marine animal behaviour. She successfully translated her research into a start-up and in 2018, after spending 8 years in the ocean field as a researcher and entrepreneur, completing research projects in Alaska, Scotland and the Arctic, the company recently shifted focus into the medical field. When receiving interest in their animal sensors from hospitals to monitor blood sample transport, Maritime bioLoggers re-branded as Motryx to pursue opportunities in the health care sector and is currently operating in Halifax with 9 employees.
