I graduated from University of Warwick in 2002 with a first class BSc in Mathematics and Physics. After a brief backpacking break, I entered the patent profession in 2003. I qualified as a European patent attorney in 2007 and as a Chartered UK patent attorney in 2008.
Prior to joining Serjeants in 2022, I worked in the hi-tech and medical teams in large Midlands-based IP firm, providing commercially focussed patent advice to clients of all sizes across a broad range of technology areas. My mathematical background proved helpful when handling patent applications in cutting-edge fields such as quantum gravimetry, magneto-optical traps and personalised medicine. I also gained extensive experience in protecting medical inventions, such as orthopaedic implants and remotely controlled surgical systems.
Outside work I enjoy sewing, hiking and cycling, and I try to get out on my bike and explore the local country lanes at least once a week. I also love to travel, both in the UK and overseas. One day I will frame some of my many travel photos, but I never seem to find the time – there’s always somewhere else to visit first!
