Technical Assistant Southampton
Profile of Madeleine Dwyer

I joined the D Young & Co patent team in 2019 after nearly two years working as a software engineer.

Since joining the firm, I have gained experience primarily in the prosecution of UK, European and US patent applications. My experience has involved a wide range of different technologies for a variety of clients.

Prior to joining D Young & Co, I completed my integrated master's degree in Physics at the University of Exeter. I went on to work at a consultancy as a software engineer which taught me how to learn skills quickly, such as learning new programming languages and software set-ups, which prepared me for any differences I encountered when working for different clients.
