Office: 979-571-0771

I am a full professor with about 33 years’ experience in computer engineering, 4 years of which were in industry. I have a strong blend of breadth and depth in VLSI CAD, VLSI circuit design, and most aspects of computing. My academic research has a strong practical flavor, and is very much in tune with problems faced in practice. I possess a solid theoretical and practical background and strong engineering intuition.

I have extensive experience as an expert witness. I am articulate and engaging, and like the strategic aspects of expert work. I think well on my feet. I thrive on creative work, and find expert witness work to be like solving a jigsaw puzzle in multiple ways — intellectually, psychologically, and strategically.
