I joined the D Young & Co patent team in 2014 and have technical expertise in the physical, chemical and biomedical sciences. I enjoy the challenge of my role as it requires an in-depth understanding of the technology involved and also the ability to formulate complex legal arguments.
Since joining the profession I have gained experience in drafting and prosecution of UK, European and foreign patent applications in the chemical field for a variety of clients, including multinational companies, SMEs and academic institutions. I also have experience in opposition and appeal proceedings before the European Patent Office.
For my master's project in the physical and theoretical chemistry department at the University of Oxford, I investigated novel applications of velocity-map imaging using a fast imaging sensor. For my thesis I was awarded a departmental thesis prize and the Jesus College Ferdinand Prize.
