I am a part-qualified UK and European patent attorney. I have experience in patent drafting, prosecution and opposition as well as providing validity opinions and freedom-to-operate analysis.
I studied chemistry at the University of Manchester (UK), where I specialised in advanced organic and inorganic chemistry. After graduating, I obtained a PhD in organic synthesis, also from the University of Manchester. My research involved developing synthetic approaches to the synthesis of the macrocycle chaetochalasin A. This research has given me a strong analytical approach to my work, which helps me quickly get to grips with a client’s invention.
Outside the office, I enjoy cycling and Aikido.
