Gautam is a Technical Assistant in the Dehns Engineering group. He joined the London office in September 2022 after completing research for a PhD in molecular physics and quantum optics at Imperial College London.
His research focused on producing beams of polar molecules under high vacuum at temperatures close to absolute zero, and then slowing and guiding the beams with laser light and magnetic fields. The work has applications in quantum sensing and simulation, and in fundamental physics research.
From his research, Gautam has experience in vacuum systems, cryogenics, electronics, optics, and laser engineering, as well as in quantum information, computing, and communications theory. He has also previously worked as a data science and machine learning consultant.
Gautam works with a variety of large multinational companies handling prosecution of patent applications in Europe, as well as other jurisdictions, including the US. Gautam also has experience assisting on contentious matters, including opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office.
Gautam has experience in prosecuting patent applications across a wide range of technologies, including robotics, electronics and sensing, warehousing, HVAC systems, and aeronautical engineering.
