Kelley A. Mullick PhD. has joined Iceotope Technologies Limited as Vice President of Technology Advancement and Alliances. Dr. Mullick is a dynamic and results-oriented problem-solver who brings solid systems engineering know-how to the global leader in precision liquid cooling technology. With many industry accolades, she is also a champion for diversity and inclusion having personally developed initiatives for women and underrepresented minorities.
Dr. Mullick joins Iceotope from Intel Corporation where she worked in Product Management and Strategy for the Datacenter and AI Group, where she developed Intel’s first immersion cooling warranty announced at Open Compute Project (OCP) 2022. She is recognized for her expertise in immersion and cold plate liquid cooling, making her a valuable asset to Iceotope.
Dr. Mullick has a BSc in Chemistry and Biology from Walsh University, an MSc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Akron, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Ohio State University. Her academic achievements, combined with her industry experience, make her a perfect fit for her new role at Iceotope. As a systems engineer, Dr. Mullick is known for her technical and business acumen for value-added solutions.
“Dr. Kelley Mullick is a welcome addition to the Iceotope team,” said David Craig, Iceotope CEO. “She joins us as the market is turning increasingly to liquid cooling to solve a range of challenges from increasing processor output and efficiency to delivering greater data center space optimization and reducing the energy waste and inefficiencies associated with air-cooling for greater data center sustainability.”
With responsibilities for building and maintaining alliances with OEMs and technology partnerships, Dr. Mullick’s role will also be to make Iceotope technology more accessible to the wider market. The company currently has alliances with leading global vendors including IT giants, HPE and Lenovo, as well as physical infrastructure manufacturers, nVent and Schneider Electric, and technology supply chain specialists, Avnet.
Precision Liquid Cooling can remove nearly 100% of the heat generated by the electronic components of a server while reducing energy use by up to 40% and water consumption by 90%. It allows for greater flexibility in designing IT solutions as there are no hotspots to slow down performance, no wasted physical space on unnecessary cooling infrastructure, and minimal need for water consumption. Most importantly, it uses the same rack-based architecture as air-cooled systems and fits into existing deployed infrastructure.
“Today, existing challenges to mitigate against the climate emergency are joined by the technological expedients of AI applications such as ChatGPT,” Dr. Mullick said. “These compute-intensive operations need the support of compute-intensive infrastructure. The limitations and inefficiencies of air cooling are well known. Only precision immersion liquid cooling can meet the environmental needs of all processor board components in a familiar form factor that fits with the way we design data centers and carry out moves, adds, and changes.”
Dr. Mullick’s passion for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has led her to help prepare women, as well as other underrepresented minorities, to be confident and successful in their own careers. In addition to creating programs in the workplace, she has also invested her personal time in developing free-to-access online materials in support of greater equality in the workforce.
The addition of Dr. Mullick to the Iceotope team is a significant step forward for the company. With Dr. Mullick’s expertise and passion for DEI, Iceotope is poised to continue its growth and success as a leader in precision liquid cooling technology.
