What is your current business or business idea?

DecisionVis specializes in helping engineers, designers, and analysts change the way they think about and solve complex design problems using a combination of advanced design optimization tools and visualization software products. Our tools are currently benefiting a range of industries, including product family design, satellite operational design, airline scheduling, and critical infrastructure management. Initially, we will focus on providing services that enable clients to achieve immediate benefits using our novel design approach. However, we will eventually transition a portion of our business to providing subscription based software products, training, and support services. The design optimization tools and services provided by DecisionVis will help clients innovate while recognizing significant cost savings by streamlining their design process. Our tools will also provide novel, more robust designs than previously possible using traditional design techniques.

What is your background as an entrepreneur?

DecisionVis was founded in July 2012 so I am relatively new to this. However, I recently participated in the 8-week TechCelerator course for Entrepreneurs offered by the Ben Franklin Technology PArtners.

What do you think you will be able to provide to the group?

As I gain business experience, I hope to be able to provide other entrepreneurs with valuable insight into the technology startup process.

What are you hoping to get from the group?

The opportunity to interact and network with other local Entrepreneurs and to share experiences in starting a viable and robust business.


I completed my Ph.D. at Penn State in 2010. Since then, I have been working as a research associate at the university. I recently founded a company called DecisionVis LLC that will provide engineering design optimization services and software.
