I am also interested in the commercialisation of science and, having worked with university spin-outs right through to larger pharmaceutical companies, I have an appreciation of not only intellectual property management but also the larger translational research pathway, which is unique for each innovation.

I have an appreciation of not only intellectual property management but also the larger translational research pathway, which is unique for each innovation.

Since graduation I have worked in both the private and public sector, and acquired experience in regulatory affairs, technology transfer and patent management. In light of my past experience, I am well equipped to review scientific data with consideration for its commercial realisation, which I believe is an asset when building any intellectual property strategy.

  • Developmental Genetics PhD at King’s College University of London (UK)
