Massoud has spent the last 19 years in the software technology and health care information management industries. He developed his current vision for Nuesoft while pursuing graduate studies at Georgia Institute of Technology and working full time at a parallel computing research lab at the Institute.
In 1993, he founded Nuesoft Technologies Inc. at the Advanced Technology and Development Center (ATDC). During his career, Massoud has held various positions as president, lead designer/architect and development manager. In 1988, he founded Interactive Communications System to develop software applications for remote computing. The company was profitable when sold one year later. He has also consulted and developed software applications for organizations such as Microsoft, ACOG (Atlanta Committee for Olympic Games), Wells Fargo Bank and IBM.
Massoud’s management philosophy is based on his belief in people and empowerment of both employees and clients. He has an in-depth understanding of technology and its role in affecting people’s lives, as well as the business environment.
He received a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Southern Technical Institute in 1982.
Dr. Famorzadeh comes to Nuesoft from Conexant Systems Inc., a semiconductor spin off from Rockwell International. As a lead System Architect on DSL technology, he helped Conexant to develop the first DSL Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) and the client ADSL solution.
Famorzadeh worked as a systems design engineer with Schlumberger Industries and as a full-time research engineer with the Center for Signal and Image Processing at Georgia Center for Advanced Telecommunications Technology. His work there included projects sponsored by the Advanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin, the Naval Research Laboratory in Maryland and the Department of Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA). As part of his doctoral thesis, Dr. Famorzadeh created a distributed software environment and architecture for developing signal processing applications over the Internet. Dr. Famorzadeh has published 13 articles in various journals and has filed three patents for DSL-related technology.
Dr. Famorzadeh received a B.S.E.E. degree from the University of Tennessee in 1989 and an M.S.E.E. degree and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 1990 and 1997 respectively.
Clarke has 15 years of operational, sales and marketing experience across a broad range of companies. He worked in the health care industry at a Managing General Underwriter and later at a managed care organization. After working in both marketing and sales management roles in the construction industry, he served as a service line manager at Atlanta’s Orkin Pest Control.
Clarke earned a bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University, and holds an MBA from Georgia State University with a concentration in marketing.
Wooten brings more than 15 years’ experience as a multimedia software developer. He headed his own consulting business, Interactive Solutions, for more than a decade, where he designed and produced nearly 30 interactive programs spanning health care, information technology, finance and cable television. Former clients include IBM, Caterpillar, Union Bank of California, Apple Computers, Emory Vision Center, DuPont, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Discovery Channel. Wooten received a Mark of Excellence Award from the International Interactive Communications Society and he is the inventor of a pending Video-on-Demand design patent.
Wooten earned his bachelor’s degree in cognitive psychology and master’s in instructional technology from Florida State University. He also holds an MBA with a marketing concentration from Mercer University and studied technical management practices at The Georgia Institute of Technology.
Dr. Irtaza Barlas came to Nuesoft from Impact Technologies, where he served as program manager. He led research and development on advanced computing systems for the Department of Defense (DoD).
Previously, Dr. Barlas was the Principle Investigator on "Self-Aware Processing Systems" for the DARPA. While there, Dr Barlas worked with Raytheon and Georgia Tech to develop technology for monitoring and real-time reconfiguration. Dr Barlas' other DoD research programs include distributed monitoring of Virginia Class Submarine Combat Systems, and Multi-agent Distributed Data Fusion for Unmanned Surface Vehicles.
Dr Barlas also served as Director of Software Development for Atlanta-based Intelligent Automation Systems, where he led development of several real-time image processing and process monitoring products for wire, cable and textile industries.
He received his MS from California State University, Sacramento. As an undergraduate he worked extensively on microprocessors, digital systems, computer networks, and FPGAs. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech., with a thesis on Multi-Agent systems for Diagnostics and Prognostics of complex systems.
