Cloud and network security
With Global Velocity I guided research and development of a novel line of network security products; Creating their cloud services market. These products minimize information leakage and data theft from computer networks.
Thank you for visiting my portfolio web site.
The journey of taking an invention or new technology from concept to launch is principally a story about value-creation. Whether we envision a multi-faceted system for a large corporation or an app focused on one objective. It's a rewarding journey within an existing organization, confined to its existing human capital, legacy systems, market pressures, and regulations. Often, winning over people's minds is as intriguing as developing the technology. Inventing something novel and building it, is especially exhilarating when the users or market do not yet exist.
I am infatuated with software, hardware, science, engineering, and all things technology. But what I am proud of the most is that I build value for people, not technology for the sake of building technology. I take time to understand how people work, think, and how they seek order in their jobs and lives. I take into account what might it take for a company to become an important player in a market. I bridge the gap between users and technology and weave technology into work and living spaces to aid people, to make things smarter, to work faster, to see beyond our natural limitations.
I am a full-stack architect and a developer. Most of my work is a result of observing the world. I have built a number of successful start-ups and was involved with other people's start-ups, as well. I have had a rewarding career as both a CTO and CIO in private and public companies. I am currently working on my doctoral degree in Computer Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. My mentor is Dr. Chenyang Lu. I passed the qualification exam and portfolio review in 2012 and the candidacy review committee in 2013. My thesis research is aimed at the Internet of Things. Prior to this academic focus, I researched how machine learning and other algorithms can render reliable decisions when the network feeding them with data is unreliable. I had a deliberate goal in mind, enabling smart medical systems that could work in rural areas, after natural disasters, or developing countries.
This web site is a review of my professional life. It is my portfolio as an inventor, computer scientist, full-stack developer, and a high-tech leader. I have invested in many companies through my journey and a critical mass of them successed. I would be happy to respond to any question or comment you may have.
