I have 30 years of experience, and specialize in the field of market analysis with specific knowledge in the areas of photonics, lasers and light-emitting diode (LEDs) and compound semiconductors. I have published on such topics as lasers and LEDs, photonics and compound semiconductors. I have testified on photonics. I spent three years at the United States Congress on technology policy analysis, several years at a trade association working on an international project with Japan, many years in market analysis and many early years in engineering. The varied background has been valuable to provide perspective.
