Biquan Luo, LumosTech

“I thought I had a happy childhood but through therapy discovered an underlying sense of insecurity because nothing I did was ever good enough.”

Biquan Luo, co-Founder and CEO of sleep tech startup LumosTech, shared the story behind her title with us on September 20, 2023.

Dr. Luo developed the algorithm to shift circadian clocks against jet lag based on Dr. Jamie Zeitzer’s research at Stanford and created the Lumos Smart Sleep Mask to help everyone improve their sleep. She built the company’s circadian rhythm optimization IP portfolio and product roadmap, and she is the inventor of 1 issued and 2 pending patents on circadian rhythm adjustments. She has been working closely with military sleep scientists and human performance leads to enhance mission readiness.

Dr. Luo is an alumna of the Ignite Program for Entrepreneurship at Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Stanford-affiliated accelerator StartX, and the Sleep Cohort of the Philips Healthworks Accelerator. She is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of Personalized Medicine at Stanford University and has a Ph.D. in Genetics, Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of Southern California.


Biquan of LumosTech sits down with us to talk about her upbringing in East Asia, the difference between the “success model” in Asia and the U.S., and how her curiosity of nature led to her development of a product that is helping individuals attain optimal sleep.
