Rob has over 30 years of experience in the fields of electronics, electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, and data science. He has special expertise in artificial intelligence and adaptive, data-driven algorithms, machine learning methods, and embedded system design and development. He has strong talents in advanced mathematics, statistics, and theory/application of stochastic process models and stochastic optimization. He has also enjoyed research, development, and applications for some of the most challenging projects in aerospace, defense, and commercial industries.
Rob has worked many years for NASA, for and with companies large and small, and has successfully led many projects and teams. Prior to starting his own company, he developed advanced machine learning software, intellectual property, and applications for a small business that was ultimately acquired by Nokia. He approaches all of his work from sound and often advanced theory, then applies it with formal and rigorous engineering in both software and hardware. He has successfully led teams, managed projects, and been a principal technical contributor to many R&D and engineering programs in the public and private sectors worth millions of dollars.
After spending so much time in aerospace and defense, Rob has welcomed a change working in utilities, energy, IIoT, biotech, and fintech. Though he devotes himself passionately to technical work, he has also enjoyed being the Director of Software Engineering, Director of Data Science, and Chief Scientist for several companies. He has a love of mentoring and educating others on technical subjects.
Rob holds an MS degree in Electrical Engineering, a PhD in Computer Science, and a patent in the field of AI. He also has numerous publications and is a Senior Member of the IEEE and IEEE Computer Society.
