John (JCR) Colonna-Romano

Software Architect

“I don’t just want to know what, I want to know how and why. A broad understanding of the world is key to being a serious problem solver; for when you are stuck, fundamental understanding is the catalyst for solutions.”

John “JCR” has over 35 years of experience in software technology, software architecture, product development, research software prototyping and software engineering. He pursues projects in a variety of technical areas such as: big data analytics, graph analytics, distributed processing frameworks, algorithm performance and scaling, adaptive training authoring systems and machine learning technology. Key areas of focus are in the cyber security and simulation based training domains.

JCR received an M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from the Stevens Institute of Technology and holds a certificate in Software Architecture from the Software Engineering Institute.  He has co-authored two books on distributed system middleware architecture.
