S D "Nelson" Nelson Technologist at IOTA Foundation


From NASA to IOTA, Nelson brings passion for far-out technology. He is enthusiastic about IOTA’s novel approach toward an efficient machine economy for the Internet of Things.

Nelson co-creates IOTA technical demos and docs so everyone understands the benefits of IOTA’s emerging technology. He brings seven years of experience at NASA, where he helped develop a “swiss army knife” for testing artificial intelligence onboard drones and spacecraft. His favorite project was the Curiosity Mars rover. He also has eight years of experience harmonizing international pharmaceutical regulations, paving the way for genome research, new meds and better food quality. He says that leading teams in 27 countries (so far) teaches him the value of diversity.

Nelson has a Bachelor of Business plus a Master of Computer Science in Cybersecurity. He is a certified Professional Project Manager (PMP) and recently achieved the IBM Blockchain Foundation for Developers credential.
