I have litigated cases involving a wide range of technologies, including chemistry and chemical engineering technologies, 3-D vision technologies, wireless communications protocols, telecommunication networking architecture, arterial stents, GIS/geo-location technologies and database management, complex polymer chemistry, QR code technologies, and internet-related technologies. I also have experience advising on inter partes reviews and other proceedings before the USPTO.
