My areas of expertise are software and computer engineering.

I have two particular areas of specialty:  The first is computer hardware design, particularly related to input/output, storage and hard disk drives.  The second is software, particularly operating systems, PC BIOS, and methods for performing software development.

I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford and engineering degrees from Cornell and CalTech.
