Expert WitnessSpeaker
I have over 25 years' experience designing vehicle safety technology, driver assistance systems and vehicle automation systems. I have been an expert witness for the last 6 years, submitting over 20 expert reports and 3 depositions. My technical expertise is in the development of vehicle systems, including maps, communications, positioning, radar, LiDAR, and vision systems, for use in various safety and automation applications. I worked extensively with vehicle manufacturers on data collection and processing technologies, as well as government and the insurance industry on the use of vehicle data in applications including traffic information, insurance rate setting, and Smart Cities.

My experience includes 3 years as CEO of Vehicle Data Science Corporation, an automated vehicle mapping start-up, 4 years with TomTom as Director for High Definition Map development and products, and 12 years with Mercedes-Benz R&D as VP of Intelligent Transportation System Products and Programs. I was a program manager at TRW where I developed one of the automotive industry’s first collision notification systems.

I hold a BA in Physics from Princeton University and 6 patents in the fields of vehicle positioning and mapping.
