About Vinod Honmute

Truth be told, I didn’t planned to be IP professional but I became the one. Truth be told, I aspire to be excellent in it but not the one. Truth be told, I’m still learning IP but not the learned one. With an experience of 4 years in synthesis and 11 years in IP after MSc in 2005 and holding several positions in IP I realized that I still have more to learn. To learn from you all.
