Andrea’s practice focuses on chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology patents, and includes the drafting and prosecution of such patents.
Andrea was a postdoctoral fellow at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany where she undertook research relating to the field of organometallic catalysis. While she was a graduate student in the department of chemistry at the University of Toronto, her research involved interdisciplinary studies in the fields of inorganic, organometallic, materials, and polymer chemistry.
While obtaining her degrees Andrea won several awards and scholarships, most notably a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Postgraduate Scholarship and an Alberta Law Foundation Scholarship.
Andrea has written several articles that have appeared in such publications as the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Advanced Materials, and Organometallics. She has also given talks and presented posters at conferences such as the Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition and the American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting.
