My focus the past several years has centered around market analysis for emerging technologies (including big data, IoT) through to mature products (e.g. various IT software products). I have consulted with startups, universities, and corporate giants. I continue to study innovation ecosystems and regional economic development which were my grad school interests.
I’m at heart a hacker, mathematician and economist — I started programming at home in 1983 with an Atari 600XL saving Basic code to a tape recorder; then moved onto the Apple IIc writing among other things sports simulations. I used Fortran in college; and C++ in early work days for scientific programming. I’m now using R and Python along with various “open data” resources to better understand emerging technology markets.
