Introduction

Licensed Professional Electrical Engineer with particular expertise in Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits. Experience and skills bridge the gap between methodologies used by the digital, analog and radio frequency circuit design teams. My subspecialty within this broad category is with integrated circuits (silicon chips) used for signal-processing, in systems such as telephones, data recording and retrieving systems, radio transmitters/receivers, audio amplifiers, audio recording/reproduction systems, heat, ventilation and air conditioning controllers, and data transmitting/receiving systems. For attorneys I provide forensic investigation and expert witness testimony, including analyzing intellectual property (IP) and patents and advising on validity and/or infringement.
