What's the difference

After a PhD in Operations Research (Combinatorial Optimization) and 19 years of executive-level technology consulting in the IT industry, I now spend my time on a few areas that are close to my heart. I provide solutions in areas where scientific, quantitative analysis is involved. Examples include electronics engineering (analog and DSP), algorithm design for decision support systems, statistical modeling and more. I enjoy taking up projects where a mix of strong research ability AND industry …


Work History & Feedback

circuit design needed - audio selector/muting

“My experience has been so favorable with Ram, I'm not even sure where to start. First off, let me just say, I'm still overwhelmed by the fact that I found him. I've never had any custom circuitry, let alone audio circuitry, designed before. This is a very new and very unfamiliar place for me. When I saw Ram's credentials and experience, needless to say, I was overjoyed. But that was just the beginning of an incredible journey. His work is very professional, well communicated, thorough, and definitely of major importance here -- he's looking down the road and planning for the challenges in the design stage that may happen two or three steps down the road. I knew I had the right guy when, during our first few rounds of discussion about my device, he was asking great questions about functionality, knew exactly what the device did, and with little time invested, was figuring out errors in my logic and already had solutions ready. Honestly, it just could not have gone better. His work ethic and philosophy are tremendous. He won't bill you for hours that were spent learning a new skill set or researching things that he doesn't know. To Ram, he doesn't feel that it's fair to put that expense on the client. Amazing. Unusual for sure. Email responses are quick and thorough. He's Skype ready, so any items requiring face-to-face discussion always happened within a day or two. Timelines were always met. He's very knowledgable about the production end of things and spent a lot of time offering up his knowledge, "off the clock". In the end, I got exactly what I wanted. My device prototype is perfect. I have nothing but praise for Ram and can't wait to work with him on future versions of my project. I would not hesitate to happily recommend Ram for any projects you have.”
