The Euclid Discoveries team is a tight knit, yet geographically dispersed group of developers, mathematicians, engineers and programmers in the multiple disciplines that impact our technology. While we’re based in Concord, MA, most of our team members live and work around the US, and the globe. In addition to the PhD’s and engineers that are dedicated full time to our technology, we also call on a number of the best researchers and professors at leading universities to collaborate and consult on key aspects of the development process.
Inspiring and directing the skills and expertise of this diverse team is the combined responsibility of the company’s management team:
|Richard Y. Wingard – Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Wingard directs Euclid’s overall strategic direction and drives research and development for the company. With over 25 years of experience with companies focused on the conception, development and launch of emerging technologies, he has held senior management positions at a number of leaders in the field, including Access Radiology Corporation, Tel-Care Inc., Multimedia Medical Systems and Vidimedix Corporation. Mr. Wingard was also in senior management at Sprint, where he oversaw the development and execution of a unique healthcare technology product, HANDS™, which set the standard for telemedicine. Prior to Sprint, Mr. Wingard worked for AT&T in Sales and Marketing. He serves as Managing Director of several companies in the technology and healthcare industries. Mr. Wingard graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BA degree in Psychology.
|J. Robert Werner – Co-Founder & President
Mr. Werner has over 30 years of management experience in various sectors of the technology and healthcare imaging industries. Before launching Euclid Discoveries, Mr. Werner was Vice President of Business Development & Strategic Alliances for VideoLan Technologies, where he led a successful public offering and negotiated an exclusive marketing agreement with Samsung. Prior to VideoLan, he was President of MDG, the United States’ first dedicated manufacturer of mobile teleradiology and diagnostic equipment. Mr. Werner spent his career at the forefront of technology advances in video and image compression, particularly as it relates to medical applications. He was a key member of the Sprint HANDS (Healthcare Application Network Delivery System) program and he helped found and create the Computed Tomography Ultrasound and Nuclear Medicine Department for the Jewish Hospital of Louisville, Kentucky. He is a founding member and past President of the Kentucky Society of Nuclear Medical Technologists. He is also a past member of the National Society of Nuclear Medical Technologists and is AART Board certified in Nuclear Medicine. Mr. Werner graduated from Western Kentucky University with a BS degree in Biology.
|Nigel Lee, PhD – Chief Science Officer
Dr. Lee brings extensive experience in matrix theory, adaptive signal processing, and systems analysis to Euclid, where he is working to develop advanced algorithms for image and video processing. Prior to joining the company, Dr. Lee was a principal investigator in the Advanced Sensor Techniques Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA. There, he developed advanced adaptive processing techniques to improve the detection and classification of submarine targets via both submarine towed arrays and torpedo arrays. Dr. Lee has also managed projects focused on adaptive time-frequency detection of active sonar signals in shallow water environments for the Weapons Technology Branch of the U.S. Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Brown University in Providence, RI, with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He received both his M.A. and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University in New Jersey. His doctoral dissertation was on linear time-frequency detection of transient signals.
|George Lauro – Board Member
Mr. Lauro has 25 years of experience as a technology entrepreneur, operating executive, and venture capitalist. He was a Partner at Wasserstein Perella and was Managing Director at Techfarm Ventures in Silicon Valley. He has been a member of the board of directors of 17 public and private companies, has served as Interim CEO, and was involved in multiple M&A transactions. Earlier in his career, George was Director of Rapid Commercialization at IBM headquarters where he led a team that launched new businesses based on advanced technology from IBM central research labs including Silicon Germanium (SiGe), Speech Recognition and pervasive computing.
