I’m a Black Country local, and graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2015 with a Masters in Physics.  My final year project centred on condensed matter physics – essentially playing with colloidal particles.

I have been training as a patent attorney with Forresters since summer 2015, and my favourite part of the job is meeting new, enthusiastic people (particularly when an idea is in the very early stages, or when a factory tour is involved!).

Day to day, I use my physics background to step back and view inventions at their most basic, to determine what makes them new.

I look forward to continuing my training and getting involved with every aspect of the patents and designs worlds.

I spend my spare seconds with my family in Birmingham/Wolverhampton/Ibiza.  My passions in six words: yoga, George (my ginger cat), rollercoasters, dancing, curry, handbags.
