Ari Kushner, CFO
Ari Kushner is a proven technology entrepreneur who brings managerial, financial, and marketing expertise to the Entanglement team. Previously, Ari co-founded and served as CEO of Diginexus Corporation, an information systems company that developed large-scale software solutions for Fortune 50 industrial corporations, financial institutions, government agencies, and the military. During his decade-long tenure at Diginexus, Ari grew the company from 2 employees to over 60, reaching $10M/year in annual revenues. Ari graduated from the Management and Technology Program at the University of Pennsylvania in 1998, where he attained Bachelor's degrees from the Engineering and Wharton schools.
Bruce Richman, CTO
Bruce Richman is a seasoned technologist in cavity ring-down spectroscopy and its applications, with additional experience in lasers and nonlinear optics. Before joining Entanglement, he was senior scientist at Picarro, Inc. from its first year to more than 12, helping it grow into a world-renowned provider of trace gas and isotopic measurement instrumentation for study of climate, pollution, and human health. There, he lead several projects in a small team that took cavity ring-down technology from basic research to applications development, manufacturing, and profit. He has several commercialized patents. Bruce has a Bachelor's degree in physics from Caltech and a PhD in applied physics from Stanford.
Ricardo brings to Entanglement key analytical, quantitative and experimental skills that apply directly to the development of trace gas sensors. His vast experience in instrumentation and spectroscopy stems from his work in single molecule spectroscopy, Rydberg physics, quantum chemical calculations, and trapped ion quantum computing. Ricardo grew up in Quito, Ecuador and obtained a B.Sc. in Chemistry from Universidad San Francisco de Quito. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Purdue University followed by postdoctoral training in Georgia Institute of Technology.
Stephanie is a software/firmware engineer with nearly two decades of experience developing hardware and software in Silicon Valley. Stephanie began her career as a DSP engineer with Sigma Designs. Subsequently, Stephanie has gained experience working with several chip design startup companies and VLSI technology, Inc. After the startup Mediamatics was acquired by National Semiconductor, Stephanie continued with National Semiconductor where her responsibilities included both chip design and low level programming. Working through multiple in house designed DSPs, Stephanie has rich experience and knowledge trade off between hardware and software implementations. Before joining Entanglement Technologies, Inc., Stephanie spent a decade as a DSP engineer at Dolby Laboratories. At Dolby, Stephanie developed her expertise in signal processing techniques and in translating designs developed by the Dolby research and development team from high level interpreted languages such as Matlab into high performance production code.
John Stockton, Ph.D., is a co-founder and board member of Entanglement Technologies. He received his doctorate in physics from the California Institute of Technology and performed postdoctoral research at Stanford University. Dr. Stockton's academic work focused on experimental and theoretical methods for extracting sensor signals from quantum noise-limited physical systems. His expertise sits at the cross section of Bayesian inference, stochastic signal processing, control theory, and information retrieval. John is also the co-founder of Quantifind, a venture backed, predictive analytics company, and developed much of the core IP related to unstructured text signal extraction. Dr. Stockton received the Hertz Foundation Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2012.
Ari Tuchman, Ph.D., is a co-founder of Entanglement Technologies as well as a board member. He received his doctorate with distinction in atomic physics from Yale University. He was awarded a Director of Intelligence fellowship and served as a DARPA technical lead for a quantum metrology effort to design ultra-precision navigation sensors. Dr. Tuchman has served as the PI on efforts sponsored by Army Night Vision and the National Science Foundation. He is curretly the CEO of quantiFind, a predictive analytics big data company backed by the Andreessen-Horowitz and Redpoint venture capital groups.
