Nikolich is the Director of Research and Technology at the University of Illinois and serves on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advisory Committee for Cyberinfrastructure (ACI). Her experience includes serving as program director for cybersecurity at NSF, executive director of infrastructure at the University of Chicago, and director of global data networking at Aon, the global financial services advisory focused on risk mitigation. She is a former United States Marine cryptologist and was one of the first female marines on the ground in Somalia during Operation Restore Hope. As Lead Research Advisor, she will help lead Inca's new national security projects and set policy and strategy for the firm's expanding national security practice.
Quintenz is a former Commissioner of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

During his tenure, the CFTC oversaw the listing of the first U.S. regulated Bitcoin and Ether futures contracts on derivatives exchanges, and the rapid expansion of decentralized finance (DeFi). In addition, he led the agency's Technology Advisory Committee, which has hosted the most comprehensive set of public crypto-related policy discussions and briefings of any federal financial regulator to date.
