Technical Assistant Southampton
Profile of Henry Davies

I joined the patents team at D Young & Co in 2020 after completing a master’s degree in physics at the University of Oxford.

My academic background covers a wide range of topics within physics, including specialisms in laser science and quantum information processing. During my degree, I undertook a research project in which I developed a novel method for aligning an optical apparatus automatically, using a technique based on reinforcement learning. I am very interested in applying my academic background to technologies in the fields of engineering, electronics, and IT.

Since joining D Young & Co I have gained experience in the drafting and prosecution of UK, European, and foreign patent applications for a variety of clients.
