She is especially interested in the application and cross-over of such technologies in the field of precision medicine.

In her time at Keltie, Samantha has also worked with a variety of clients (from start-ups to multinational organisations) in other technology areas including payment processing technology, graphical user interfaces, 3D printing, augmented reality, and vehicular control systems. She has experience in drafting, prosecuting and opposing patent applications before the UK and European patent offices covering this wide range of subject matter


Samantha also is experienced in patent portfolio management, and advising clients on protecting financial technology innovations, particularly in relation to making use of the UK’s Patent Box scheme. She also advises her clients on issues of design protection, including the preparing and filing of registered designs in the UK and Europe; as well as carrying out freedom-to-operate assessments for clients across a range of technology areas.

Prior to joining Keltie, Samantha graduated from Durham University in 2010 with a Masters Degree in Physics with Astronomy, where her studies included condensed matter physics, lasers, spectroscopy and electromagnetism as well as astrophysics. She then went on to complete her PhD in Physics at the University of Cambridge in 2014, where she studied star formation in our galaxy using observations of emissions from gas and dust. During this time, she also taught undergraduate students in physics laboratory classes.


Samantha joined Keltie in 2014 and qualified as a UK and European Patent and Design Attorney in 2018.
