I am a part-qualified UK patent attorney and also training to become a European patent attorney. I have experience in patent drafting, prosecution and opposition as well as providing infringement opinions and freedom to operate analysis.
My PhD was interdisciplinary in nature. My research involved materials science, chemistry, thermodynamics, optics and varied instrumentation. I had the pleasure of performing experiments using X-ray and neutron beams in both France and the UK. The X-rays were generated by a particle accelerator and the neutrons by a nuclear reactor. This was followed by analysing data to get a picture of the interior of polymer films that I fabricated in a chemistry lab.
Having a foundation in the physical theories underlying mechanical engineering gives me a fresh perspective.
