Overview:

Martin is a trainee patent attorney who recently graduated from the University of St Andrews. He took numerous applied modules including analogue electronics, laser design and nanophotonics during his time at St Andrews and so can assist in a wide variety of technological areas. Martin finished top of his graduating class during his MPhys year where he designed a novel capacitive dilatometer that is currently in the process of being patented and commercialised.

Experience:

  • Interned at another firm where he analysed search reports and drafted responses to examiners/clients and amended patents for overseas firms to ensure compliance with EPO rules
  • Interned with the University of St Andrews’ Technology Transfer Centre where he assisted in the commercialisation of academic research, a process that typically involves patenting and licensing technology
  • Undertook a masters project that involved the design, assembly and testing of a new device to measure length changes in quantum materials. After just three months of research, the device was shown to be competitive with the highest resolution dilatometers in the literature
