This expert has extensive litigation experience including deposition and trial testimony.
This expert has pioneered the design, fabrication, and testing of wireless devices for many years. As a senior scientist, this expert designed and oversaw the fabrication (from breadboard to microchip fabrication in a foundry) of a state-of-the-art two-way communications device. It was the first ever to operate successfully at high speed among speeding vehicles in an urban multipath environment (which is the bane of terrestrial RF devices).
This expert designed and oversaw the fabrication of (at that time) the smallest GPS device in the world. This expert oversaw the design and deployment of a one-cubic-inch full transceiver that communicated with a satellite. Unlike most practicing electrical engineers today, this expert is proficient in both RF and digital technologies, and has been teaching graduate school classes on these. This expert has been deposed more than 150 times, and has testified in Court on more than a dozen cases. This expert has been commended by a judge for the ability to explain complex topics to judges and juries in an intuitive manner. In addition, this expert "handheld" a jury through several lines of Source Code to show the jury that they could easily see themselves that the adverse party was infringing on a major patent. This expert holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, and Philosophy; an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering; and a B.Sc. with highest honors.
This expert, the inventor of three polysilicon fabrication patents, has degrees in Chemistry, Applied Science, and Physical Ceramics. With many years of experience as a Materials Scientist, this expert is a Distinguished Professor at a prestigious university. This expert is author to 565 peer-reviewed publications, over 30 of which are specifically devoted to polysilicon, either regarding fabrication of devices or testing of the same. This expert is also author to additional MEMS-related publications, as well as many publications within the most highly sited materials science journal. This expert has prior litigation support experience, including patent infringement and trade secret matters. This expert has composed expert reports, been deposed and has testified.
This expert has many years of experience in microcircuit and semiconductor technologies and has developed skills in areas of circuit design and analysis, device fabrication and assembly, testing, marketing, control system design and analysis, manufacturing operations and respective areas of quality, reliability, and defect / failure analysis.
This expert worked for a technology company in design, production, and QA, and was the QA manager of a DRAM Wafer Fabrication Facility.
This expert is President, CEO and Principal Engineer for a highly sought-after engineering consultancy. A Graduate Mechanical Engineer with many years of professional, domestic and international engineering system design & material defect analysis experience, this expert has been called upon to examine and investigate numerous design, fabrication and operational issues related to various processes being performed, items being fabricated and parts being produced in volumes and at rapid rates. These have included the designing and overseeing of the installation of 83 brand new production lines of machinery and equipment for the production of diapers and various feminine hygiene products. Additionally, this expert has investigated the assembly line and product defect failures associated with juice packet spout application failures which caused excessive product leakage and large storage issues. Such design and product assembly processes relied heavily on photoelectric cells, high speed counters, adjustable guideways and multiple mechanical assemblies that directed parts into specific positions in order to be mated up with other components all at excessively high speeds. These efforts ranged from the insert of the raw materials to the folded or packaged finished product ready for shipment. Over the course of this expert's years of design, fabrication, construction and project management work combined with years of mechanical investigation and testing experience, this expert has centered work around mechanical system and material component analyses. Retained by both national and international insurance organizations, plaintiff and defense law firms and private industry to perform mechanical equipment assessments and causation evaluations, this expert has extensive prior litigation history including deposition and courtroom testimony.
