Meet Thor

Thor is a petroleum engineer with an MBA degree from UC Berkeley. He began his career working in the oil and gas industry, primarily with Schlumberger in the Anadrill / D&M segment. Upon leaving Schlumberger, he consulted for financial entities and operating companies for several years, before founding DataCloud.

DataCloud is a big data / artificial intelligence firm. Its goal is to modify and transfer real-time E&P geoscience technology, and apply these workflows to the mining industry. Successfully doing so provides mine site operators with the real-time insights needed to engineer grade, and subsequently improve the economic and environmental profile of "mine to mill" operations.  Orica is one of their major investors and they have recently raised $8m in investment funds
