We are proud to be a member of the following professional organizations:
CLOUD AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES
TerraNexum is proud to participate in the following programs:
Dahl Winters has been a leader in science R&D and technology initiatives with over 15 years of experience in IT and systems development services. She brings a wealth of expertise with strengths in geospatial big data analytics, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and R&D innovation strategies to TerraNexum.
Previously, Dahl was the CEO and CTO of DeepScience Ltd, planning and building systems for science and sustainability applications for 7 years that have won several innovation challenges. These included developing geospatial big data analytics capabilities for enterprise customers as well as innovative systems for renewable energy and carbon capture applications.
Dahl obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Duke University where she received the Reginaldo Howard full-tuition scholarship for academic merit and leadership. She also holds a Master of Science in Ecology from the University of North Carolina of Chapel Hill where she was a predoctoral fellow of the National Science Foundation.
Co-Founder, Advisor - Physics
Dr. Loren Winters is a co-founder and officer of TerraNexum, serving as our secretary and treasurer. Formerly, Loren served as a physics educator for forty years and was a pioneer in the use of emerging technologies for education. He also developed a program in high-speed imaging that spread nationwide and helped build a consumer market in the field.
In addition to teaching, he has done photography professionally, licensing high-speed photos for educational and commercial use. In 2012, he received the Raymond C. Bowman Award from the Society for Imaging Science and Technology for dedication in making high-speed photographic recording available to students.
Loren has been an avid volunteer of Friends of Mt. Evans and Lost Creek Wilderness (FOMELC), a US Forest Service volunteer group maintaining these wilderness trails and keeping invasive species under control.
Thomas J. Bogdan
Co-Founder, Advisor - Climate Science
Dr. Thomas J. Bogdan is a physical scientist, research administrator and science communicator, with demonstrated experience in the public, private and academic sectors, both domestically and internationally. He focuses on enabling investors, policy makers and influencers to bring the best current space and environmental science knowledge to bear on pressing economic, social and national security problems that entail advanced technologies. As the sixth President of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) from 2012 to 2015, Tom ushered in a series of modern enterprise business solutions that created numerous efficiencies, reduced operating costs, and facilitated enhanced collaborations between the 1400 professional staff members and the allied academic community across the United States and Canada. As a result, during Tom’s tenure, UCAR was again selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to operate its largest and oldest Federally Funded Research and Development Center, the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The five-year Cooperative Agreement signed by UCAR and the NSF was in excess of one billion dollars.
In addition to these activities, Tom has had an extensive career as a research scientist, having authored over 100 papers in the refereed science literature. He also managed a multi-million-dollar portfolio of research grants with the National Science Foundation.Tom holds a Doctorate in Physics from the University of Chicago and is a graduate of the Federal Executive Institute’s program in Leadership for a Democratic Society.
Oscar A. (Andy) Quezada
Co-Founder, Advisor - Energy and Geoscience
Andy Quezada is a scientist and engineer with two decades of experience in the energy and technology development industries. He has served as a geophysicist, team leader, and advisor for large independent corporations, startup companies and academic research groups. He is currently serving as VP of Subsurface Development at Carbon America.
With a passion for innovation and the adoption of emerging technologies, he has strived for the application of integrative approaches from geophysical, remote sensing and engineering fields to the arising challenges in traditional and renewable energy. His recent experience serving as a scientist in the renewable energy industry has been focused on climate solutions and streamlining novel applied science ideas.
With the upsurge of attention on carbon removal and management, Andy's experience has been vital for tapping into the vast amount of human knowledge and technology developed for the oil and gas industry for the benefit of the new carbon and renewable energy economy.
Andy graduated from the University of Texas with a MSc in geophysics, is active in the geoscience and renewable energy communities, as well as being recently involved in mentoring students at the Colorado School of Mines.
