Leadership Team

Woelk PhotoDarrell Woelk, President

Darrell has a proven track record of applying emerging technologies to solve business problems. He is an acknowledged industry expert in knowledge management, agent based computing, database management systems and online learning. His breadth of technical and business experience enables him to effectively bridge the communication gap between technologists and business analysts and to implement solutions that draw on multiple scientific and technology disciplines.

Darrell played a key role in the development of new technologies such as the ORION Object-Oriented database system, the Carnot enterprise integration system and the InfoSleuth distributed agent system at the MCC research consortium. He later applied emerging technologies to solving a variety of business problems as a consultant at Scient, Docent and Telcordia Technologies. At Telcordia Technologies he helped launch the Army Center of Excellence for Net-Centric Data Strategy at Ft. Monmouth, which provides consulting services to Army organizations on data modeling, Service Oriented Architecture and REST development.

Darrell received the B.S. Degree in Engineering Physics from the University of Kansas and the M.S. Degree in Computer Science from Kansas State University. He is the author of over 30 peer-reviewed technical papers.

Marian (Misty) Nodine, Chief Scientist 

Misty has a passion for understanding, organizing, and making sense of complexity. She is a respected researcher and developer in the areas of graphical models, information and knowledge management, agent-based information systems, communications system management, and collaboration management.

Misty’s experience in knowledge and information management was most recently evident at Telcordia Technologies, where Misty provided key support and leadership in projects related to the knowledge supporting automated buildout of networks from a network description, the use of graphical models for the overall automated analysis of problems in networks and in agent-based systems (faults, security breaches, performance issues), and support for collaborative teamwork in areas governed by multiple sets of policies and procedures. Misty’s interest in machine learning is more recent, and includes projects related to the automated understanding and description of video clips, and thought leadership on several other proposed projects. Finally, in the areas of data integration, storage, and communication, Misty’s work at MCC included technical leadership in the core architecture for query processing over information sources distributed across the Internet. Misty also has served as a company liaison to the FIPA and OMG standards organizations.

Misty received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brown University in 1993. Her primary focus of study was transaction management in distributed, object-oriented databases. She received her S.B. and S.M. in EECS from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is an author of over 30 peer-reviewed technical papers.
