We have done original research for possible solutions to technical issues or problems. Ken has a Master of Science in Operations Research, Statistics and Information Management. Mathematical rigor and lateral thinking are applied to technical issues.
A few examples of past research:
- Statistical heuristics for evaluating multi-dimension data exhibiting Markovian attributes.
- Statistical methods for auditing quality of service information of a hybrid system (part manual, part automated)
- Implementing a RDBMS in COBOL using VSAM as the data store (1979)
- Created the original “Object Explorer” control at Microsoft (Hierarchical tree supporting different images and fonts for every item).
- RTF to HTML converter written in 4 weeks in 1995 (for publishing MSDN on the web)
- Creating AJAX applications in 1998 to address high latency and low bandwidth issues with Microsoft Licensing Explorer.
- Creating a set of auto-localized .Net Controls to minimize development time.
- Creating a novel implementation for effectivity dating of rules on SQL Server.
- Creating a novel implementation for a hybrid policy-language/role based access control system
