Profile - Patent examiner (Simon)
Simon, Senior Patent Examiner
(Bachelor of Science in Nanotechnology and Diploma of Innovation Management)
Simon is passionate about intellectual property, so a career at IP Australia seemed like a logical choice.
"I enjoyed reading about the latest scientific advancements in my free time prior to working at IP Australia. Getting paid to do it now is a win-win for me."
When Simon joined the Agency he undertook patent examiner training, and has since travelled around Australia to further his education in the fields of physics and nanotechnology. Simon is now a senior examiner and is in charge of the patent mentoring program. This allows him to get to know new and experienced patent examiners as he tries to find the right mentor for each new starter. Simon is involved in various projects that focus on improving quality, efficiency and knowledge within the patent group and the wider organisation. He finds working at IP Australia friendly and supportive.
