I am an accomplished Computer Scientist with over 8 years of industry experience in advanced technology development. During this time, I have authored 2 books and filed over 20 patents; my work on auditory interfaces was profiled in the September 1996 issue of Scientific American. I have leading edge expertise in auditory interfaces, scripting languages, Internet technologies including Web server applications and Web standards. I participate in numerous W3C working groups and authored Aural CSS (ACSS); in 1996 I wrote the first ACSS implementation. I have been actively participating in defining XML specifications for the next generation WWW including XForms, XML Events, and XHTML+Voice.


Develop technologies that drive the future of the Web toward eyes-free, ubiquitous information access. Speech is the next natural dimension in user interfaces, and I am developing products that combine speech technologies with the power of the Web to deliver innovative multimodal applications that are available anytime, anywhere.

Other Interests

My favorite hobby is recreational mathematics. I enjoy working on puzzles, especially those that involve an intuitive feel for mathematics. One of the things I enjoyed doing the most in the early eighties was to solve the Rubik's cube faster than anyone else around me, on an average of about thirty seconds! I am also interested in linguistics and can speak about eight languages, including French, German and several Indian languages.
