Optalysys welcomes a second Senior Software Engineer, Corwin Joy, to the team based in Nevada, USA.
Corwin has over 20 years experience writing algorithms for high performance numerical computing. He holds an MSc in Applied Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University and a BA in Statistics from Rice University.
Past projects include OLAP visualization tools at the Baylor Human Genome Center, statistics pipelines for high throughput proteomic arrays, and low latency numerical routines for high frequency trading.
Optalysys was founded in 2013 to develop revolutionary optical processing technology for the areas of Big Data processing and complex mathematics. The first product is launching at the end of 2017 and performs genetic sequence alignment.
Optalysys evolved from a University of Cambridge spin-out known as Cambridge Correlators Limited (CCL) when the team refocused on large scale HPC applications.
The Optalysys team includes specialists in software development, bioinformatics, free-space optics and optical engineering.
The company has several patents covering its groundbreaking technology.
