Julio C. Guerrero Ph.D.

Founder and CEO

Julio C. Guerrero Ph.D.

Dr. Guerrero is a mechanical engineer who assists and guides corporations globally with their technology development needs. Dr. Guerrero has worked in research and development (R&D) and business development for several years in diverse companies such as Draper Laboratory in Cambridge, MA; Schlumberger Research (SLB) in Houston, TX and Cambridge, MA; and FIAT-IVECO in Torino Italy. Dr. Guerrero’s technical expertise includes analyzing, designing, and developing mechanical systems, including those for harsh and extreme conditions. He has extensive experience with the energy and oil and gas industries and is an owner of over 20 mechanical system patents worldwide. Dr. Guerrero earned his master’s and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and was awarded the Honorary Doctoral degree from Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería in Lima-Peru in 2015. In 2014, he became a member of the Pan-American Academy of Engineering (32 countries). He was the 2015-2016 President of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), an organization of almost 140,000 engineers in 150 countries.Since 2003, Dr. Guerrero has collaborated with MIT professors, graduate students, and WHOI researchers and lectured in engineering at MIT. He developed applications for Draper Laboratory’s technological capabilities and assets in the energy industry, including oil and gas exploration and the nuclear industry. Dr. Guerrero served as a principal research scientist at SLB, where he helped develop robots to convey equipment in horizontal oil and gas wells. He also established numerous research collaborations with professors and students from universities and research centers around the world and led the 2,400-member SLB/Eureka Mechanical Engineering Community in 3 continents and all SLB engineering centers for 5 years. He is fluent in several languages, and loves skiing and swimming, history, economics, and Renaissance Italian art.

William Worek Ph.D.

William Worek Ph,D.

Dr. Worek has been involved, over the last 35 years, in the development of desiccant materials for cooling systems applications, modeling of sorption processes, experimental testing of desiccant material performance and the use of desiccant processes in the design of cooling and dehumidification systems. He holds three patents on sorption system design improvements and has published extensively in archival journals and has given numerous lectures on the subject.  Also, he has investigated heat transfer enhancements to when nanofluids are boiled.  Dr. Worek was chair of the American Society of Mechanical Engineer’s (ASME’s) Solar Energy Division, Vice-President of ASME’s Energy Resources Group and served as a Member of ASME’s Board of Governors.  Dr. Worek is Fellow of ASME, Life Fellow of the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).  He has received Edwin F. Church Medal from ASME recognizing his accomplishments in engineering education and the Frank Kreith Energy Award.  In addition, Professor Worek Co-editor of new 12thEdition of Mark’s Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, Executive Editor of Applied Thermal Engineering, Editor-in-Chief of The International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer and Heat Transfer – Asian Research.  Dr. Worek has consulted worldwide.  He was Chair, Mechanical and Systems Engineering Board of the Research Grants Council (RGC) of the University Grants Committee (UGC) of Hong Kong and currently serves the University Grants Committee (UGC), Panel Member and Project Monitor of the Collaborative Research Fund (CRF), the Theme-based Research Scheme (TRS) and the Areas of Excellence (AoE) Funding Schemes Projects.

Tancredi Botto Ph.D.

Sensors and Physics

Tancredi Botto Ph.D.

Dr. Botto is a senior applied physicist and R&D expert. He creates value by translating advanced sensing and measurement needs into practical engineering solutions, leveraging a strong record of creative solutions and a passionate entrepreneurial spirit. Dr. Botto’s background includes extensive work in fundamental nuclear science research at various particle accelerator facilities worldwide. He was then a Principal Research Scientist at Schlumberger Research for 13 years where led the development of intrinsically safe nuclear “source-less” technologies and contributed significantly across diverse technical disciplines such as nuclear, microwaves, MEMS, photonics and power electronics. Dr. Botto has helped many organizations by growing their physics & laboratory skills, and by facilitating the introduction of new technologies and pursuit of new business opportunities. Since 2006 he is an active participant in the Boston vibrant tech scene where he started and led a number of collaborations with leading universities, startups and networking groups. He regularly consults with international companies across a range of industries, including clean energy, mining and medical devices. He speaks English, Italian and Dutch. In his free time, he enjoys food and travel mountains around the world, competitive powerlifting and the occasional hosting of string and chamber music ensembles.

Rodrigo Vivanco MBA

International Business Development

Rodrigo Vivanco

Rodrigo is a senior executive with more than 20 years of global experience in business development, marketing, and strategic planning. He has worked with multinational engineering and construction companies such as Amec Foster Wheeler (*), Skanska, Grupo Cobra, and Buenaventura Ingenieros.
