Prior to working in the patent law field, Jan worked for 17 years as an R&D engineer for Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies. As an R&D engineer, Jan helped develop one-box testers for mobile phone manufacturers in the cellular industry. More particularly, Jan worked as a Digital Signal Processing Engineer, and, as part of a team, helped implement real-time demodulation of over-the-air signals, integrate and support real-time data delivery across multiple subsystems for maintaining a wireless link, and develop algorithms for measuring signal quality. Her development experience includes embedded systems, real-time processing, multi-threaded environments, and multi-processor systems.
Over the past years, Jan has volunteered as a driver for Meals on Wheels, a program that provides hot meals to house-bound adults.
