Emma graduated from Imperial College London in 2009 with a master's degree in Physics, before continuing her studies in the field and at Imperial College by undertaking a PhD in the Photonics Group, followed by a year and a half as a Research Assistant. During this time her research focused on the development of high power diode pumped solid state lasers, using both end-pumped and side-pumped geometries, for use in medical and industrial applications in particular.
Emma decided to make the jump from research into the patent profession in 2015 when she joined the Engineering team at Keltie. Since then, she has worked to support a range of small and large clients, spanning sectors and technologies that include automotive, subsea engineering, optics and photonics, and packaging. Emma has experience in both drafting and prosecution of patent applications, as well as in the filing of design rights in Europe and the US in particular. In addition to her time working for clients from the Keltie offices, Emma has also had the opportunity to undertake an in-house secondment where she was involved in both patent prosecution and invention harvesting.
Emma qualified as a UK patent and design attorney in 2021.

Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular method for a company to raise funds to get a new product off the ground. This is particularly prevalent for small businesses and start-ups within the lifestyle and wellness sectors. Successful crowdfunding has been seen in diverse areas such as tabletop gaming, comic books and virtual reality headsets. The potential for a company with its roots in crowdfunding can be extremely high, with the company Oculus starting from searching for a $250,000 investment on Kickstarter to eventually being bought out by Facebook for a figure in the billions.
