Christian has a diverse scientific background. His doctoral research focused on evolutionary genomics, where he developed a strong background in molecular biology and genetics, including nucleic acid sequencing, genome assembly, and bioinformatics. Additionally, much of Christian’s work focused on characterizing polyploid genomes, which adds complexity to traditional genomic analysis focused on diploid genomes. This background allows Christian to assist inventors across a range of genetic and genomic technologies from personalized medicine to agriculture.
Christian has experience in patent prosecution and licensing and looks forward to helping clients build patent portfolios through in-house innovation and licensing. Additionally, Christian is also a licensed commercial pilot and flight instructor. In addition to enjoying time spent in the air, he brings a unique perspective to strategy and resource management.
