Coincident has assembled an outstanding team of engineers, researchers, and advisors. We presently employ eleven employees and contractors, though many on a part-time basis. Because a few of our key employees have yet to transition to full-time employment we're withholding their names from the web site for now. Qualified individuals or organizations seeking more details on our team should contact us and we'll arrange time for a private discussion.
Jason Hanna - President & Founder
Jason is a veteran of the high-technology industry and moved into energy management in 2007 when he founded Coincident. Jason is a voting member and participant in several industry-related smart grid standards efforts and in 2009 helped secure Department of Energy funding for an $18.4m smart grid project in New England. He is also the Managing Director and Co-Founder of Greentown Labs, Boston's first and only incubator for early stage clean energy companies. Prior to forming Coincident Jason was an engineer, architect, and senior manager at EMC Corporation. In his last role with EMC he created and led a team that applied business process automation, workflow, and advanced web applications to automate several billion dollars of business transactions with strategic partners and suppliers. Jason has also held a variety of consulting positions and has extensive experience managing international technology projects. Jason moved to Massachusetts in 1998 and holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Iowa State University.
Robert Cooper - VP of Engineering
Robert is a seasoned technology executive and system architect. Robert joined Coincident in 2010 and combined his passion for energy management with his ability to bring technical computing products to life. Robert has held VP, director, and lead design positions at Mercury Computer Systems, Lucent Technologies, Stratus Computer, and various networking start-ups. Robert co-founded and grew Isis Distributed Systems, a software startup, through profitability to strategic acquisition and supported critical customers such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Robert holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge, England, a B.S. from Massey University in New Zealand, and is pursuing an ALM in Sustainability and Environmental Management at Harvard University Extension School (energy modeling and life cycle analysis focus). Robert is also the holder of two U.S. Patents.
Dan Livengood - Energy & Thermal Algorithms Research
Dan is a Postdoctoral researcher at MIT and attained his Ph.D. from MIT in 2011. In his research Dan focused on developing algorithms to coordinate energy consumption, generation, and storage in response to time-varying pricing. Along with his research, Dan spent time at EnerNOC in 2008 and 2009 and analyized baseline calculation methods for demand response programs. Dan is active in the smart grid and energy management space and helped organize the Managing Demand panel at the 2009 MIT Energy Conference and the first session of the Moving Toward a Smarter Grid Seminar Series with IEEE Boston. Dan also holds a B.S. and M.S. in Systems Science and Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
We'll continue to add profiles for our other engineers and team members as they make the transition to full-time employment. Without revealing their secret identities we can tell you we've got two crack hardware and operating system engineers that spent time at Bell Laboratories and Lucent, two brilliant and experienced software engineers (one of which published a leading security framework book), and a stable of incredibly talented advisors and business contributors.
