My name is Karthik, and I'm currently building an eclectic team of engineers, architects, and policy wonks at A^3 by Airbus (www.airbus-sv.com) in San Jose. Previously, I was CTO of Coin (www.onlycoin.com) a consumer electronics start up based in San Francisco which was acquired by Fitbit in May. Most of my previous experience is in academia, and I have also worked for NASA and The Aerospace Corporation.
