About Us

Model Paths is premised on the idea that scientific modeling can be extremely useful in not only understanding complex physical and social phenomena -- especially when large amounts of data are readily available -- but also in solving problems that are critical to a sustainable planet and society. We are inspired by efforts like AI for Good and believe that modeling technologies as a whole can be applied at scale for social good.

Model Paths was founded by Kumar Venkat, an expert in modeling and simulation with a track record of building innovative solutions in climate tech, electronic design automation for chip design, and science/environmental education. He has founded two innovative technology companies in the past: CleanMetrics in climate tech, and Surya Technologies in the electronic design automation industry. Prior to this role, he was CTO at PlanetFWD heading up technology, software development and life-cycle data development. Check out Kumar's writings here.
