Dr. Martin Lukac
Dr.Martin Lukac is a Founder and the Chief Technology Officer of Nexleaf Analytics. He also serves as a Visiting Scientist at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). Martin holds a B.S. from Haverford College, and received his Ph.D. from UCLA for innovations in wireless seismic and acoustic sensing systems. At Nexleaf, Martin leads all aspects of the technical design and architecture of sensing systems and connected devices. His work has led to one pending patent and several more in the works.
Martin’s research experience includes building, deploying, maintaining, and evaluating embedded systems for seismic, structural, environmental, and public-health applications. He developed, deployed, and maintained one of the first large scale wireless seismic networks as part of his thesis work. This system was deployed in Peru and Mexico for over two years and spanned over 250 km. Over the course of his work at UCLA, he has worked closely with geophysicists, structural engineers, and ecologists. Martin has presented and published his work at numerous peer-reviewed conferences and journals in computer science and earth science.
