Technical Assistant London
Profile of Molly Guy-Hickson

I joined the patent team at D Young & Co in October 2021 and am particularly interested in the fields of mechanical engineering and bioengineering. I enjoy applying my technical background in physics and engineering to my role.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in physics, I wanted to expand my knowledge into other areas, leading me to undertake a masters in mechanical engineering. My degrees have given me a strong technical background in a range of areas across physics and engineering, allowing me to work with a wide variety of inventions.

Since joining the firm, I have gained experience in the prosecution of UK and European patent applications. My work covers a wide range of electrical and mechanical technologies.
