With a background in biotechnology, I spent years working as a research assistant for various universities across Australia and internationally before joining the patent profession.
My research background includes investigating the molecular pathways of asthma and respiratory disease with a focus on the role of T cells and granulocytes, and signalling by cytokines, chemokines and miRNA pertinent to regulating allergic inflammatory responses.
I registered as a patent attorney in 2014. Since that time, I have been responsible for the management a global patent portfolio in the field of nanoparticles and assist with local and foreign patent prosecution matters. I provide a strategic and consistent approach across clients’ patent portfolios and ensure that the matters within each portfolio are appropriately prioritised. This high level of organisation facilitates a streamlined strategic approach and enables clients to make fully informed decisions within an appropriate time frame.
I enjoy the cohesive team approach at Wrays which, I believe, creates a great work environment and delivers better results to our clients.
