About The Authors

Danaka Porter, M. ENG.

Associate Professor of Marketing at the University of Dallas

Danaka obtained her Master of Engineering from MIT in systems and supply chain — which is just a fancy way of saying algorithm writing and process optimization. She is a partner at iota consulting, a management consulting firm, where she works in supply chain, project management, and data analytics in heavy manufacturing and technology.

Her work often includes ensuring the Navy and Coast Guard vessels have the correct gear, writing predictive algorithms for oil and gas companies, or optimizing the supply chain of a global mine. Danaka is also a sessional lecturer at the Dhillon School of Business, where she teaches supply chain and project management.

Danaka is a cofounder and the COO of VitaNova Tech, a fertility company. She wrote the algorithms to better match surrogates and egg donors with intended parents.

Additionally, Danaka is completing her Ph.D. in cardiology at the Cumming School of Medicine, where she is using machine learning to help predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) by rewriting the algorithms used to find certain markers. Danaka sits on the training and education committee for the Cardiac Arrhythmia Network of Canada, where she educates Ph.D.s, trainees, doctors, and health care workers in implementing and using technology in cardiac care.

She also sits on the board of motionball, a national fundraising committee dedicated to raising money for the Special Olympics. She looks after a variety of animals as an animal foster parent for her local Humane Society. Danaka routinely mentors high school and university students, helping them to find their passions. She is also an educational counselor with MIT, where she works with admissions to find the best applicants that align with MIT’s mission. She is a certified coach and helps those she works with to achieve their goals and dreams.
