After receiving my Ph.D from Princeton, I held academic positions in Electrical Engineering at McGill University, University of Vermont, and University of Florida. During the 1989-1990 academic year I was a visiting scholar at Universite Catholique de Louvain, in Louvain-la-neuve, Belgium and at University of New South Wales, in Newcastle, Australia.
In 1997 I moved to the Boston area and made a career change and became a senior documentation specialist at The MathWorks, Inc. In 2000 I became a senior technical writer at I2, Inc. In 2001, I became a senior research scientist at SBI Moldyn, Inc. In 2003, I became a senior technical writer at Funk Software, Inc., which was acquired by Juniper Networks, Inc. in 2005. Since May of 2006, I have been a principal technical writer at Unica Corporation in Waltham, MA.
Outside of work I still enjoy gardening, cycling, swimming, XC skiing, going out to hear local Boston musicians, and, of course, writing.
