Stanford graduate, theoretical physicist, bona fide rocket scientist, and the tour de force behind Hypernet, Ivan is passionate about solving the world’s biggest and most complex problems. While running large scale simulations on extended theories of gravity for his doctoral research, Ivan realized that the bottleneck of innovation in nearly every scientific field is the lack of available parallel computation. This lead him, Daniel, and Todd to develop a brand new parallel programming model (Hypernet’s DAC algorithm) that would be able to solve problems which were previously impossible due to resource and technological constraints. Ivan hopes Hypernet will usher in a new wave of innovation, and enable solutions for humanities greatest challenges. A true renaissance man, Ivan also plays the French Horn and enjoys ballroom dancing.
