20200826-David Retouched

Founder and CEO

David

David is an electronics engineer specializing in digital systems, FPGAs, and image processing. He's worked at such companies as Delta-Q Technologies, Verisante, Mistywest, and Signal Laboratories. His passion for high-speed imaging began in 2006 after seeing the cool things Mythbusters were doing. Unable to afford a high-speed camera at the time, he set out to build his own, which ultimately lead to Chronos.

In his spare time, he makes science and engineering videos on his Youtube channel tesla500.

ENGINEERING

20200826-Sanjay Retouched

Engineering Manager

Sanjay

Sanjay's passion for all things tech comes from his high school days of building robots for the FIRST Robotics Competition. He went on to pursue a degree in Computer Engineering and has worked in Silicon Valley, as well as on his own startup ideas. When he's not busy bending software to his will, he enjoys cooking plant-based meals and going on road trips.

20200826-Kurt Retouched

Electronics Engineer

Kurt

We think Kurt might have sneaked in when the bay doors were open one day. He came fully prepared with a tool kit and smile. Kurt is the calm in the sea of large personalities. His lends his focus to the healing bench making test jigs and wrestling with RMAs.

When not working for the Man (David?), Kurt works on his own electronics projects such as mechanical keyboards!

20200828-Ben Retouched

Software Engineer

Ben

Ben is a hobbyist mathematician, with special interests in symplectic geometry and analytical number theory. Particle physics and quantum field theory are also his favourite subjects for reading pleasure, among other things. With a diverse interest as his, Ben will always be passionate in studying and finding new ways to solve problems.

As a member of the team at Kron, Ben enjoys writing code in embedded systems, bridging the gap between the user interface and the underlying hardware. A naive implementation for a functionality is only the first step, the art is in the continuous push for improvement.

20200826-Nicholas Retouched

Hardware / R&D Lead

Nicholas

Nicholas has a background developing robotics, embedded systems, and industrial control systems. He thrives on tackling challenging problems with technology that's always changing and has the expertise to design and tie together software, electronics, and hardware. He believes that there are thousands of ways to solve a problem, but the best ideas often take the most work to find and are only obvious after you’ve put in the work. Nicholas is both a movie nerd and the inventor of the first fully functional CNC sewing machine (that we know of). If you can't find him, check the basement; he's probably tinkering with a robot or rewatching old horror movies.

20200826-Ken Retouched

Electronics Engineer

Ken

During his youth, Ken was fascinated in how parts could come together to create beautiful creations. This leads to him graduating as an engineer. To build his experience, he starts his career in a 2-Ways radio design company. Currently, PCB design is now his new grounds, but still loves to build plastic models during his free time.
