Engineering:
In the field biomechanics & biomedical engineering, my interests lie in gait analysis of children with Cerebral Palsy. I have 10 yearsâ?? experience of instrumented gait analysis in clinical populations and have collaborated with NHS partners to provide outcome measures which lead into the decision-making process to help determine the need for surgical interventions. I also collaborate with industry partners and have validated 3D printed foot-ankle orthotic (AFO) devices (subject to legislative provision: custom class 1, Medical Device Directive 2002, 93/42/EEC) to promote more efficient movement patterns.

Law:
I am a Part Qualified (UK) Patent & Trade Mark Attorney, specialising in Patent Law, Trade Mark Law, Copyright & Design Law and Competition Law. Additionally, I have recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Law (incorporating the Common Professional Exam) at the University of Westminster and will shortly be commencing the Bar Professional Training Course at City, University of London, ultimately with the view to practice at the Intellectual Property Bar. In addition to my interest in all aspects of Intellectual Property Law, I am also interested in Law of the European Union (including Competition Law), Sports Law & Medical Law.
