Key Skills

Technical Writing and Presentation

My success as a consulting scientist has been built upon my ability to convey complex technical information to a general audience. Michael Alley’s books, The Craft of Scientific Writing and The Craft of Scientific Presentations, have heavily influenced my approach.

Research and Analysis

Although skilled in the laboratory, I specialize in developing mathematical models of optical and opto-mechanical systems. My preferred analysis tool is Mathematica, which I have been using for over twenty years, along with the Optica ray-tracing plug-in.

Project Management

I prize my reputation for completing complex projects on time. My principal tool for project management has been SharedPlan Pro.
