Technical Assistant London
Profile of Yusuf Birader

I joined the patent team at D Young & Co as a technical assistant in 2022. I have a strong technical background in physics and a keen interest in business, both of which I enjoy applying to my role.

My degree in physics has helped me to develop a broad technical knowledge base. In particular, I spent my final year researching the orbital dynamics of planetary remnants in extrasolar systems using numerical modelling, which gave me exposure to cutting-edge physics and computing techniques.

I have experience in patent prosecution in the UK, Europe and the US, working for a variety of national and international clients. My work covers a broad range of technologies, although I’m particularly involved with computer-implemented inventions.
