After excelling for many years in the fields of science and engineering, Dr. Okunev retired from his role as a senior scientist with Innurvation Inc. Previously, he held similar positions with the Digital Communications Research Laboratory, the Bell Laboratory, PCTel Inc. and Symbol Technologies.

Utilizing his industry expertise, he authored a number of scientific monographs, patents and technical papers such as “Phase and Phase-Difference Modulation in Digital Communications”. For his professional accomplishments, he earned the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Charles Hirsch Award for Outstanding Contributions to Phase Modulation Theory and Wireless System Design. Dr. Okunev's creativity, however, reaches beyond his professional accomplishments. He has authored deeply thoughtful books and essays of socio-philosophical nature. His book “The Axis of World History” received The National Best Book Award in the World History category.
