Expert has used his experience and knowledge of biochemistry and biophysical measurement to create tools for measurement of clinically significant targets for the biomedical industry. He has developed Drugs of Abuse and many other assays, supported the development of complex instrumentation for random-access, high throughput, automated analysis of blood, urine and other biological samples. Together with his knowledge of biochemistry and mathematical models he has applied concepts of measurement to the successful development of fluorescent, chemiluminescent and other optical detection methods including vibrational spectroscopy (Raman quantitation).

In addition to research expertise, Expert has participated in New Product Development and has significant experience creating design goals, FMEA, FA, specifications, Quality systems, scale-up scenarios and technical product support teams and associated documentation. This considerable experience has allowed him to teach Quality, Product Development and Statistics courses over the past 8 years at Northwestern University including the Kellogg Masters in Product Development (MPD) and the Masters in Quality and Regulatory Sciences (MQARS) programs.

During his 20 year career at Abbott Laboratories (Diagnostics Division)and his subsequent work, Expert participated in the management of many technical groups involved in Basic Research through Applied Statistics and Numerical Methods and served often as an internal consultant to Development Teams. New products management is an especially challenging but rewarding area which he especially enjoys due to the creativity, technical ingenuity and integrative challenge of creative problem solving. Often, novel solutions result in significant Intellectual Property for the Company and Expert has a number of patents based on his participation in product development; this is an often overlooked aspect of management and Expert is well aware of the value of Patents and is capable of assisting and managing teams to maintain ownership over their technology.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Chicago, Illinois - Rockford, Illinois - Aurora, Illinois - Naperville, Illinois - Peoria, Illinois - Joliet, Illinois - Elgin, Illinois - Waukegan, Illinois - Gary, Indiana - Kenosha, Wisconsin
