The archive of the IEEE USA Diversifying your Consulting Practice for Times of Crisis webinar in now on YouTube.com. The speakers included Jacob Beningo, Daryle Gerke, PE, William Kassebaum, PE. The presentations were very informative and the speakers provided some useful links to resources and some advice developing new business.
I have a small business providing electrical system engineering, design, R&D, modeling, prototyping, and networking services. Some of my past projects include an undersea power and communication junction box for an undersea observatory application, fiber optic delay line, an undersea transceiver design study, an actuator driver, and adapting software to control a 6 axis alignment robot.
Before consulting, I worked at AT&T bell laboratories and Lucent Technologies designing undersea telecommunication and optical networking hardware. I co-founded Red Sky Systems which made regional undersea systems.
When I'm not consulting, I study nanotechnology to develop my own products (graphene based terahertz light source). This effort has led to learning Mathematica for modeling device physics and learning to fabricate devices at a nanofab. To learn more, please see my profile on LinkedIn.
