Biography

My academic interests encompass both information technology and law. I am a Professor and H. Ross & Helen Workman Research Scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Law. I have a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a JD summa cum laude from Georgetown University.

I have served as a technical expert in numerous patent lawsuits in the communication and computer areas, especially wireless communication, RF, e-commerce, software applications, integrated circuits, microelectronics and semiconductors. I am an inventor and hold 20 U.S. patents and serve on the boards of directors/advisors of start-up technology companies. I worked for several years as a research scientist at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.

I have also been actively involved in virtually every aspect of patent litigation as counsel, technical expert, legal expert, Special Master, mediator, and appellate counsel. I served as one of the inaugural Thomas A. Edison Distinguished Scholars at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

My recent research work focuses on patent law and policy and cybersecurity and privacy. I'm best known for employing empirical, computational and analytical methods in my research. My recent publications can be found on SSRN (Social Science Research Network) at http://www.ssrn.com.
