Pedram Mokrian’s expertise lies at the intersection of how new technologies (connected devices, mobile, software systems), analytics (big data stack), and new business models (consumer marketplaces, product-driven services) can disrupt large incumbent markets such as energy, manufacturing, logistics, education, and commerce. 

Since joining Mayfield in 2009, he has been part of the investment team in CPower (acquired by Constellation Energy) and SolarCity (SCTY). He also serves as a board observer for enterprise SaaS companies SmartRecruiters and CloudPhysics, and other private companies in lighting and power generation.

Prior to Mayfield, Pedram spent time understanding how global markets worked on Wall Street as a member of the commodities trading desk at Credit Suisse in New York. He began his career by actually building things as an engineer and held positions at Ford Motor Company, JDS Uniphase, and Nortel Networks, broadly covering the areas of power generation, fiber-optic communications, and chip design.

He holds a BS and MS degree in Electrical Engineering, and a PhD from Stanford University with a focus on Operations Research, Quantitative Finance and Economics.
