I have worked as an analyst, in intellectual property portfolio optimization and in business development in areas such as biotech and pharmaceuticals, energy, technology and media and entertainment. My experience in financial analysis and forecasting, industry and market trend research and analysis, intellectual property licensing issues, and partnership negotiations is useful in covering these issues so relevant to the life science and energy sectors. I spent years in research in Moscow, Cambridge, MA, Cambridge, UK and the San Francisco Bay Area and use this technical background in evaluating new product pipelines in the industry. My focus here is on evaluating technologies and market demands and highlighting the innovative companies with potential to succeed in prevailing conditions. I studied at Cambridge University and am a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
