Government Publications

 

I co–authored numerous notice of inquires, congressional responses, merger reviews, white papers, notice of proposed rulemakings, and orders while at the FCC and the NTIA.  While these tasks preempted my academic research and publishing, I was able to gain considerable insight into and influence upon the Federal policy making process.  As an example of this work, the citations below represents some of the important work that I co–authored while at the FCC and the NTIA.

 

1.     Recently I co-authored the Open Internet Order at the FCC (see http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-10-201A1_Rcd.pdf) and An Assessment of the Viability of Accommodating Wireless Broadband in the 1755-1850 MHz Band at the NTIA (see   http://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/ntia_1755_1850_mhz_report_march2012.pdf).
