Chris Mathew CFO
Co-founder and CFO Chris Mathew brings financial experience being a Math/CPA student at the University of Waterloo. Math/CPA combines co-op work experience with a background in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, complemented by an equally focused study in accounting, economics, and business-related topics. Chris was also a core member of the high school electric car project alongside Kyle, exhibiting a deep passion for technology and innovation. He has worked as an assistant investment analyst at Scotiabank, developing investment strategy tools using MATLAB and various other programming languages. Chris is currently interning at KPMG in Toronto in a joint audit (Financial Institutions) and tax (Global Mobility Services) position.
Kyle Faller CEO
As founder and CEO, Kyle Faller ultimately creates the vision for Intelline and ensures that the vision is shared by all members. His experience in leadership and project management has been continuously proven, beginning in high-school where he brought together a team of students to design, fabricate, and race a fully electric vehicle, managing everything from team finances to the engineering of all vehicle systems, and doing a lot of the machining and fabrication work along the way. The technical expertise that complements his management skill has been further strengthened during his studies as a mechanical engineer at the University of Waterloo, having led composite manufacturing and powertrain design for the university’s formula electric race team. His work experience as an engineering intern in precision manufacturing at Dynaplas, and in powertrain research and development at Alta Motors, builds upon his understandings of the inner workings of a successful business, while also proving his aptitude to complete extensive research and design projects in very short time frames.
ANKIL PATEL CTO
As co-founder and CTO, Ankil Patel brings his technical experience as an electrical engineering student with a focus on a physics minor. Ankil has over 8 years of experience in computer modelling of systems and electronics. He started out by working on the mechanical, electrical and programming aspects of his FIRST robotics team for a competition in which the team won several awards in their rookie year. He has built his own cluster computer to model heat transfer systems – among many other tasks. His work at TappLock in the engineering department gave him insight into DAQ systems, fabrication processes, and startup cultures. Moreover, his experience in modifying engineering designs based on dynamic models is exemplified by his efforts in modifying several different microfluidics designs using fluid dynamics simulations. Ankil is incredibly excited to be developing the future of cryocooling to make it more efficient and accessible for everyone!
