Andrew Schmeder

President & CEO, Co-Founder & Inventor

EnChroma

UC Berkeley-trained mathematician Andrew Schmeder has broad expertise with technological innovation and was responsible for the design and optimization of EnChroma’s products. Andy’s diverse background includes time as a staff researcher at UC Berkeley where he was introduced to the concept of perceptual psychophysics: the science of how physical events that occur in the world relate to the human perception and cognition resulting from those events. Through this intellectual framework, Schmeder was initially introduced to the idea of using technology to assist with sensory disabilities by looking at how the parameters of digital hearing aids can be manipulated in real-time to improve experiences such as enjoyment of music for the hearing impaired. Later, this experience would prove invaluable in his work developing EnChroma.
