Featured Keynote Speakers

  • David VomLehn headshot

    I love working on new, innovative projects where my involvement spans multiple subsystems. This is true of space-related development, especially with NewSpace companies or companies willing to use new approach to solve old and new problems. Most recently, this has meant a position as the lead flight software engineer for a lunar lander. My team works closely with practically every other subsystem, requiring everyone to stretch their existing knowledge to meet requirements, sometimes in ways that go beyond traditional approaches. I thrive on the challenge of working on systems where success and failure are measured in stark terms–our flight software team motto is “No new craters!”

  • Luka Mustafa headshot

    Luka Mustafa is working full-time on IoT and advanced embedded systems at Institute IRNAS www.irnas.eu that he founded in 2014 in Slovenia. He leads a multidisciplinary team developing open systems and devices for the most challenging environments and uses, ranging from custom CNC machines, to electronics and fibre optic systems (wireless optical system KORUZA www.koruza.net)

  • Natali Tshuva headshot

    Natali Tshuva brings over 10 years of experience, both as a researcher and a team leader, in the field of cyber security and software development. After graduating magna cum laude B.Sc. in Computer Science at the age of 19, as part of a special program for gifted and talented kids, Natali was handpicked to serve in IDF’s 8200 elite technology unit (the Israeli equivalent of MI6 or NSA) as a security software engineer.

    Prior to founding Sternum, Natali held several cybersecurity-related roles, including leading different R&D and research teams for global cyber intelligence market leaders.

    Having identified critical gaps in the IoT security market with life-saving consequences, Natali now leads all aspects of Sternum’s vision and mission execution both technologically and commercially.

    Natali holds an M.Sc. in Computer Science from Bar Ilan University and when she is in between meetings she rejuvenates with creative writing and all sorts of sports.
