Management Team

Proveris Scientific management team brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and leadership.

Dino J. Farina, MS, EME

Founder & CEO

Dino Farina founded Proveris in 1995 shortly after completing two graduate degree programs at Stanford University in mechanical engineering. He was awarded the prestigious NASA Student Fellowship grant to study advanced fluid dynamics at the NASA-Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California and was a co-author on two groundbreaking journal articles related to his work with temperature and shear-stress sensitive liquid crystal coatings. His second Stanford thesis led to a U.S. patent that motivated him to move back home to Boston and start Proveris with a focus on image-based methodologies for understanding complex fluid flows.

Dino is an entrepreneur at heart. His 20 years of business experience and technical expertise with optical measurements of fluid flow and thermal phenomena, signal processing and advanced algorithm development, mechanical design, experiment design and analysis, and pharmaceutical regulatory science, keeps him very much involved in all facets of Proveris’s development and customer related activities. He is a named inventor on over 40 U.S. and international patents, and has published numerous articles and a book chapter related to orally inhaled and nasal spray drug products (OINDP). He drives the company’s overall vision for customer success in the complicated OINDP market.
