- Provide technical leadership in the areas of requirements management, systems integration and architecture design.
Professional experience gathering, managing, and writing system requirements in small and large teams.
Academic research developing desktop and rich client applications in Java telecommunications technology, Java Swing, and Ruby on Rails.
Systems integration skills including integrating concurrent recovery processes associated with many networking technologies. Presented at conferences provisioning techniques to make all network devices in a multilayer network cooperate during a fiber cut.
Willing to relocate internationally.
My main focus areas of research include 1) operations and management of multilayer transport networks 2) how to automate consistency checking for network devices to cooperate during multiple failure events and 3) programming an application that provides a value-added checking to provisioning tools in a telecommunications management network.

Thesis project – Network Survivability, Multilayer Recovery, Automatic Protection Switching
Develop a stand-alone multilayer provisioning system (MPS) in Java and a provisioning conflict detector tool in Ruby that checks for spatial and temporal provisioning conflicts in configuring network devices. Routing logs are queried and a network is discovered. Structural conflicts are discovered by checking 1) whether connectivity is maintained during a fiber cut and 2) whether a network service provisioned through many network devices is restored within performance deadlines consistent with business goals of a mission-critical network service. The multilayer provisioning system depicts structural relationships between agents that exist at each step of the failure recovery process. A Java Swing interface was created to configure SONET Automatic Protection Switching for each replication of a simulation run. Data processing was performed with scripting languages. Rich client interfaces were developed in the NetBeans platform.
Passed Engineer-in-training (EIT) exam in State of Pennsylvania (1994).
