Having joined Dehns in 2020, James is currently a Technical assistant in the Engineering team.
He graduated from the University of Warwick in 2018 with a degree in Physics and stayed on to study a Master’s degree in Advanced Mechanical Engineering, graduating in 2020 with a distinction.
James works with a variety of clients, including small/medium-sized enterprises and multinational companies. James handles prosecution of patent applications in Europe, and has experience of prosecution in a number of other jurisdictions including Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, the UK and the US. James also assists with client work outside of prosecution, including patent application drafting.
Whilst James is confident working with subject-matter from a variety of technical fields across physics and engineering, particular areas of technology he works with include smartcards, medical devices, gas turbine engines, fire detection systems, HVAC, transport refrigeration systems, oil and gas, and offshore wind turbines.
BSc (Hons) in Physics, University of Warwick, 2018
MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering, University of Warwick, 2020
During his studies James covered a wide range of fields including thermal physics, optics, electronics, fluid dynamics, and precision engineering. As part of his Master’s degree, James’ research project involved using computational fluid dynamics to optimise the profile of aerofoils.
