I have been researching and writing about the telecom and semiconductor industries for over 20 years.

I was a contributing editor for FibreSystems Europe between 2005 and 2009. Between 2006 and 2009 I was an analyst at LightCounting, and in 2013 I rejoined the market research firm as a consultant.

From 2001 to 2005 I was a senior analyst at RHK Inc. (now Ovum) covering optical components and communications semiconductors. I have also undertaken projects with market research firms Ovum, CIR, Heavy Reading and Informa T&M.

I contributed monthly technology trend articles for the London-based magazine, Total Telecom from 2005 to 2010, and semiconductor articles for the UK electronics design magazine, New Electronics, from 2005 to 2015. I write news stories and features for Optical Connections
