Pervez has a strong academic background, holding a B.S. in Computer Science from University of Bombay in India, M.S. in Computer Science from George Mason University and M.S. in Information and Computer Science from University of California at Irvine. His academic interests ranged from finite automata and formal SW methodology to neural networks, genetic algorithms and computational neuroscience. Pervez has been at the forefront of some of the early development cycles in Wi-Fi, PON, ATM, SONET and Optical networking. His passion in these areas is only matched by his love for sports, which he follows ardently in his free time.


James Reeves
Technical Advisor

James began his career at Advanced Micro Devices where he was responsible for microcode for disk drives followed by software development for early high speed communications products. He moved from AMD to SynOptics where he led the software development for FDDI and later ATM switches. After the merger of SynOptics and Wellfleet at Bay Networks he was responsible for a rapidly growing portfolio of Ethernet Switches. He later served as Vice President of engineering for Nortel Network's Enterprise Data, where he led the development of routing, Layer 2-7 switching, VPN, IPSec, SSL, firewalls, WLANs, content caching and IDS/IPS products.

Following Nortel, James joined startup Trapeze Networks where he led engineering and customer service through their aquisition by Belden (then Juniper Networks). Currently, James is responsible for Product Operations at an immersive 3D display technology company. James has been on the Technical Advisory Board at embedUR since March 2011 and holds a BSEE technology degree from Cogswell Polytechnical College in San Francisco.
