+Responsible for the coordination and management of many international development projects
dealing with large-scale collaborative software development.  These projects have involved
community building, bootstrap financing (venture capital, government programmes, industrial
sponsorship and partnerships), financial coordination and adminstration, operations, and technical

+Technical expertise includes an in-depth knowledge of CORBA core infrastructure, the IDL
and PSDL languages, related common services (naming, PSS, Time, Notification, interceptor
and activator frameworks).  Comprehensive knowledge of component management systems, component
lifecycle concepts, container solutions, component assembly strategies, component isolation,
and federation mechanisms. Experience with Java, J2EE, Servlet and related development tools.

+Software Engineering and Best Practices experience is derived from the management and coordination
of several large projects in the service management area -  provided the opportunity to explore
different approaches to service management.  This has included assessment of the technical,
human and social factors that contribute to functional, usable, and maintainable business
systems and in-depth work related to Component and Service Oriented Programming (COP and SOP)
and the related principals of SOC and IoC.

+Early experience related to advanced research in the area of distributed multi-agent systems
served as the foundations business-level application strategies and related peer-to-peer architectures.
Responsible for the initiation of several research and development projects in this area,
culminating in the OSM development of a peer-to-peer service management platform.
