Ms. Weinhaus is a nationally recognized expert
on the interplay of government policy, technology deployment, and market
economics for the communications and information networks and services
industries. She has over twenty-five years as an author and advisor to both
government and corporate leaders.
In 1993, Ms. Weinhaus founded and directed the
Telecommunications Industries Analysis Project. CIRF is a continuation and
expansion of that effort. Through CIRF, she continues to provide a unique
forum where government, business, and academics work together to provide
reliable data, clear analysis of major issues, and workable solutions. This
forum facilitates dialogues on key issues, produces leading edge research,
and provides widely used tools for policy and decision-makers in government
(including Congress and federal and state regulators) and in the
communications and information industries.
Ms. Weinhaus received degrees from Brown
University and from Harvard University. She has also been a faculty member
at the University of Florida, an associate director at the University of
Southern California, and a research analyst at Harvard University. She has
authored Behind the Telephone Debates as well as over forty reports that
cover both short-term and long-term technology and policy issues. Work in
progress includes a book on industry convergence.
