"I get great satisfaction learning about people’s IP, their ‘Eureka moment’, and turning that into something tangible that has a direct benefit to their commercial strategy."

Stefan’s extensive academic and research experience sees him working at the crossroads of chemistry, materials and engineering, and their combination into the fields of biomedical devices and biomedical materials.

Combined with an appreciation for mechanics, Stefan is able apply to apply his skills across a wide variety of technical areas – from new nanomaterials, to mining drill rigs, to construction materials and to chemical engineering.

“My broad background allows me to quickly identify concepts and the core concept of a client’s invention and the field in which their IP sits,” he says.

Stefan has a particular interest in IP in Space and is a Member of Space Industry Association of Australia.  Stefan’s articles and commentary on the topic have been published through LexisNexis and Lawyers Weekly.
