Founder & CEO

Louis Romero has a BS (1975) and PhD (1981) in applied math from Caltech. He worked as a research applied mathematician at Sandia National Labs for 39 years (he received his graduate degrees under Sandia’s OYOC and DSP programs). He has published over 60 peer reviewed journal articles (with over 3000 citations) and has obtained 7 patents.

He took part in the Department Of Energy’s Science Advisor Program, where he spent one day a week as the science advisor to Jefferson Middle school from 1990-97. During that time he developed numerous activities involving shapes and patterns that are still being used by teachers today. After the science advisor program ended, he continued working with several elementary schools, where he dedicated his time to help spread math awareness, and supervised a class at the Albuquerque Academy from 1997-2000 that used a preliminary version of Tile Farm. He is currently an Adjunct Professor of Math at the University of New Mexico where he teaches a graduate level class on symmetry, and an introductory class on shapes and patterns for non-technical majors.  Since retiring from Sandia National Labs in 2014, he has been the CEO of Stellate Software, working with Awairness Interactive on the development of Tile Farm, testing it in numerous elementary school classrooms and STEAM programs.
