Ultralytics: Who We Are
Glenn R. Jocher
Founder and CEO
Mr. Jocher received his Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University in 2004. In 2014 Mr. Jocher founded Ultralytics with the core mission of better serving the IC and DoD research communities. A modeling and simulation expert with over 14 years of industry experience on various Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) contracts, Mr. Jocher currently leads Ultralytics' modeling, simulation, data science and machine learning efforts on various government and commercial sector initiatives.
Kurtis Nishimura received his Ph.D. in high energy physics from the University of Hawaii in 2010, for the study of rare B meson decays at the Belle experiment in Tsukuba, Japan. During his graduate work and postdoctoral studies, he played a lead role in design, modeling, and analysis of novel particle identification detectors for future particle physics experiments. Kurtis joined Ultralytics in 2015 to work on Ultralytics neutron and antineutrino detection programs, with emphasis on high resolution timing using GSPS waveform sampling. Dr. Nishimura currently serves in an advisory capacity.
Taisiya Mineeva received her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Connecticut in 2013, and her Physics M.Sc from Moscow State University in 2007. Dr. Mineeva is an expert in data analysis, simulation, statistics and phenomenology. She has spearheaded terabyte-scale analysis of particle physics experiments at Jefferson National Lab using Monte Carlo modelling within a high energy physics distributed-computing framework. At NIST, she led a project designing and commissioning a novel experiment employing quantum information processing principles and condensed matter physics. Dr. Mineeva joined Ultralytics part-time in 2017 to leverage her data science expertise into exciting commercial-sector solutions.
Francesca Poli graduated with honors from the University of Trento, Italy in 2017 with a Master’s Degree in Business Management. She received the maximum mark in her graduating class (110/110), and during the course of her studies she led a consultancy project at the Italian cryptocurrency group Sardex, for which she received individual recognition for her outstanding performance. Francesca joined Ultralytics in 2018 to help direct the company’s business development efforts with a focus on digital marketing and client relations.
