I have 10 years' experience in Silicon Valley working in the semiconductor and telecom industries. I have worked for large, medium-sized, and startup companies, two of which I co-founded. I have been primarily employed at Rice University since 2008 with title Professor in the Practice (now Distinguished Professor in the Practice). Expert legal consulting experience: (Please note: I have not and will not work with non-practicing entities.) 7 sets of patent cases: 4 federal district court, 2 PTAB IPR petitions, 1 ITC All cases settled or were dismissed. I likely would have been a testifying expert in 5 of the cases. I have professional experience in electronics, circuits, device physics, radio frequency circuits and systems, lasers, optics, fiber optics, embedded coding, semiconductor design, semiconductor manufacturing, internet of things, motor control, and electro-optical systems. I have experience in patent law from the engineering side: I am a co-inventor on more than a do...
