Principle Investigator

JPL, University of Massachusetts, Aerial Vision Inc.

January 1984 - May 2015

I have a background in Physics and Computer Vision. I have been a principle investigator for many years. I am interested in solving hard problems. My approach is to identify a problem, determine if the problem can be solved, then finding a solution. Since my retirement from UMass, I have turned my attention to online shopping. Amazon is vulnerable. The Amazon ecosystem has many flaws, which are bad for consumers and small merchants. I would like to join a group of creative individuals with a shared goal of creating a new online shopping paradigm that will compete effectively with Amazon.
