My work focuses on control plane management and optimization methods for virtualization for IoT infrastructure (wireless networks, data storage) and on algorithmic ways to manage energy demand and usage.
Previously, I was President and CEO of Clearwater Networks and General Manager of the Integrated Processor Division at National Semiconductor. At Clearwater Networks, I was responsible for setting the overall business strategy, raising venture capital totaling $35 million, growing the organization to 75 people, and successfully managing the development of the initial products. At National Semiconductor, I started the division, defined the initial products and managed their development on time and on budget. I was responsible for managing corporate relationships with Microsoft, Wind River Software and Cisco. At SUN Microsysems I was Sr. Director of Corporate Development and Strategy. I was also Vice President and Partner at Merrill Lynch Venture Capital for six years, where I was responsible for investments in networking, semiconductors, and storage (six IPO‘s.)
