ApacheCon NA 2015 has ended

Jake Dodd

My name is Jake Dodd, and I’m a co-founder of a software company based in Santa Monica, California.

I attended the University of Southern California (B.S./M.S. Astronautical Engineering, 2011/2012).

After receiving my B.S., I co-founded a company and then worked for a contractor on a national security space program at Air Force SMC. In my time there, I built a modeling/sim application that receives ongoing use for a number of national security space studies.

In Fall of 2013, I co-founded my current company, Ontopic. We’re building a product that will revolutionize real-time qualitative research for professionals who need to keep up-to-date on news topics.

In 2012, I presented a concept for a space-based nuclear fuel plant at an AIAA conference (http://arc.aiaa.org/doi/abs/10.2514/6.2012-5329), which resulted in an interview on The Space Show hosted by Dr. David Livingston.
