Areas of Expertise

Expert Witness

I have acted as an expert witness in a VPN (Virtual Private Networks) patent dispute on behalf of the defendants. I worked on prior art research, claim charts, claim construction and an invalidity report, before the plaintiff settled for stipulated dismissal.

Professional Experiences

My professional experience is pretty diverse, having started my career as a software engineer, then moved to project management, product management, standardization, and strategy and planning. As I moved in the latter roles, notably acting as lead strategist for the Edge Router market. I developed more and more business analysis expertise, while continuing to expand my brand technical knowledge of networking technologies as I was investigating one strategic initiative or another. I consequently acquired an extensive knowledge of the corresponding worldwide industry scene (service and content providers, equipment manufacturers, market analysis).
