Leon is a trainee patent attorney in the IP department and is involved in the prosecution of patent applications in the fields of telecommunications, electronics, and computer-related technologies. Leon graduated from Imperial College London with an MEng (Hons) degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, where he was awarded a Power Academy Scholarship from the IET. His studies have given him a solid technical foundation in a wide range of technical disciplines including analogue/digital electronics, cybersecurity, biomedical devices, and software development.
In the past, Leon has also undertaken various academic research placements to supplement his studies – first in a Nanotechnology group, exploring novel nanolithography techniques for transistors with special material properties, and then in the Biological Physics group, using computational modelling and numerical analysis to investigate the electro-mechanics of the heart in heart failure conditions. Leon has completed industrial placements in the power industry, as well as in a leading multinational oil & gas company.
Leon works to support the drafting and prosecution of patent applications. He holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law (Distinction), and is currently working towards qualification as a UK and European patent attorney.
