Richard studied for his Masters degree in physics, and DPhil in condensed matter physics, at University College, Oxford. His undergraduate specialisms included solid state physics and biophysics. His postgraduate research focussed on the behaviour of spin waves (excitations of magnetically ordered materials) at temperatures close to absolute zero, and their possible integration with quantum information technology.
Richard is a part-qualified patent attorney whose work involves filing and prosecuting patent applications. He handles cases in various technical fields, including in the manufacturing and design of displays, solar cells, and optical devices, as well as medical devices and computer-implemented methods in bioinformatics. He also handles a variety of mechanical subject matter, including HVAC systems and automotive inventions.
Richard joined J A Kemp in 2017 and works in the firm’s Oxford office. He has worked on drafting and prosecuting patent applications for a number of clients local to the Oxford area, including from the university and its spin-out companies.
