Technical Assistant London
Profile of Nathan Turnbull

I joined the patent team at D Young & Co as a technical assistant in 2018. I have a strong background in physics and computer science and I enjoy applying this in my role.

My degree in Natural Sciences at Cambridge covered physics, computer science, and materials science. This has helped me build a broad range of technical knowledge which I relish being able to apply when working with a wide range of inventions.

I have experience in patent drafting and prosecution in the UK, Europe, and the US. My work covers a broad range of technologies but I’m involved particularly with processor design and various computer-implemented technologies.
