“The world of IP is constantly changing with exciting new discoveries and advancements in science happening every day.

"Our universities play a critical role in driving this work and it’s a pleasure to work with them to share our IP knowledge and ensure their breakthroughs are protected,” Pasquale says.

Pasquale has an extensive academic background in electronics, microelectronics, electrical engineering and photovoltaic and renewable energy engineering.

His expertise in the field is well recognised and he has been published in prestigious industry journals including Applied Physics Letters, the Journal of Applied Physics, Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, Progress in Photovoltaics and Thin Solid Films.

For his PhD and post-doctoral research project he was one of the main investigators of the Hot Carrier Solar Cell Project at the University of New South Wales.  The project aimed to build a next generation super-efficient solar cell.  Pasquale managed a team of students, researchers and engineers and achieved significant milestones.

Pasquale works with universities and start-ups to implement IP strategies which are sustainable and provide the maximum leverage to bring technology to the market.

Pasquale enjoys giving guest lectures in electronics at the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering. He also provides IP education for a number of accelerators and the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales.

“I’m glad I have the opportunity to give back some of my academic and private sector experience to innovators who are driving the next wave of inventions that will improve our lives,” he says.

Pasquale was the recipient of the International Postgraduate Award from the University of New South Wales in 2017.
