NovelSemi Solutions is a technical consulting group with expertise integrating MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and other emerging technologies with traditional COTS parts.

Michael B. Wolfson

Dr. Wolfson specializes in learning how to solve problems.  He is a generalist among specialists and has a broad multi-disciplinary background.  After graduating from Brown University (Sc.B. 1995), Dr. Wolfson entered MEMS R&D by joining Noel C. MacDonald's research group at Cornell University (Ph.D. 2001).  Ever since, he has worked with small teams to develop and commercialize unique MEMS technologies.  He has contributed to companies ranging in size from angel-funded start-ups to Asian electronics giants.
