Trainee patent attorney
I believe IP protection is key in research and development and ultimately enables the advancement of science and technology. This is why I joined NLO as a trainee patent attorney. My greatest strength is finding creative solutions to complex problems. This passion, together with my interdisciplinary research background, enables me to work with clients in a wide range of Chemistry disciplines from process technology to food formulations.

Before joining NLO, I completed an MSc in Industrial Chemistry and a PhD in Materials Science. I specialised in molecular interactions and how they translate to macroscopic properties in materials. After my PhD, I took a position as a postdoctoral researcher in protein chemistry and structural biology.
