Patent Agent, Ropes & Gray, New York
M.Eng. (Systems Engineering), Cornell University, 2010
B.S. (Engineering Physics), Cornell University, 2009
I completed an M.Eng. in Systems Engineering in 2010 with the help of the Boehringer Fellowship. Since graduation, I have been working as a patent agent at Ropes & Gray LLP. I am concurrently studying law at NYU and expect to graduate in May 2014.
As a patent agent, my Cornell engineering education has been vital for understanding inventions across various technical fields, such as wireless networking, data encryption, and satellite systems. My systems engineering training has been particularly useful in understanding complex, multi-disciplinary inventions; appreciating and explaining how inventions fit into a system from a broad perspective; understanding the technology development process; and communicating effectively with inventors.
I sincerely thank Mr. Boehringer for his support in my systems engineering degree, which gave me skills that I undoubtedly will rely on throughout my career.
