Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes matters involving copyright, licensing, and contracts.
My professional experience includes: Assistant Professor of Computer Science; Principal Scientist at a technology company; Director of Economic and Policy Analysis of a research company; Law Clerk; President of my own information company.
From 1985 through 1996, I was actively engaged in both academic research and applied consulting work in the areas of search, matching, and decision-making. I had a particular niche in the use of probabilistic and statistical criteria for matching and decision-making in economic models. I also wrote several research surveys on techniques for reasoning under uncertainty, with an eye towards matching and decision-making.
I am also an expert in the patent arena, having served as a clerk on the CAFC, as a Registered Patent Attorney, and as both counsel and an expert witness on numerous patent matters. I have also written about patenting in the scholarly literature. My experience as a testifying expert includes both infringement and damages in patent cases.
In addition, I have been working as an expert witness since 1997, and have testified in federal court, state court, and arbitration hearings.
