Technical Assistant Southampton
Profile of Victoria Boothman

I joined the patents team at D Young & Co in September 2018 and am particularly interested in the fields of microprocessor design, digital electronics, software and telecommunications.

Since joining the firm I have gained experience in the prosecution of UK, European and foreign patent applications in a wide range of technologies for a variety of clients.

Prior to joining D Young & Co, I completed a master’s degree in physics at the Royal Holloway, University of London. During my degree I undertook a research project modelling diagnostic equipment for the FETS experiment at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire.
