John Levy, Ph.D.
My areas of expertise are software and computer engineering.
I have two particular areas of specialty: The first is computer hardware design, particularly input/output, storage and hard disk drives. The second is software, particularly operating systems, PC BIOS, storage networks and software development.
I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford and engineering degrees from Cornell and CalTech.
I have been engaged as an expert in more than 60 cases. In the past four years, I’ve testified at trial two times and been deposed nine times.
In prior years I have also consulted for the Court as a neutral expert in three cases.
