Alex Philp, Ph.D., is the Founder and CTO of TerraEchos, Inc., an award-winning provider of an extreme compute appliance, KAIROS, for consuming and analyzing complex data streams for workflow optimization, next-generation prediction, and advanced decision support: knowing, now.
Prior to launching TerraEchos, Alex created Adelos, Inc. and GCS Research, developing advanced sensor systems, distributed GIS systems and geospatial information technology solutions. GCS was a direct spin-out of NASA's EOS program at the University of Montana, combining his love of geospatial systems, and his experience working for the US Forest Service and the National Park Service in Montana. Alex's academic interests include history, ecology, geography, and philosophy, having pursued interdisciplinary degrees from the University of Montana. His doctoral work involved Late-Pleistocene Paleoecological Landscape Reconstruction. His undergraduate work combined ancient Greek history and Greek philosophy at Seattle University.
Alex lives with his family in Missoula, Montana, and fell in love with Montana as a Park Ranger in Glacier National Park.
