Wayne leverages his expertise in chemistry to assist clients with procuring U.S. and foreign patents.
As a scientist, Wayne’s research focused on designing, synthesizing, and studying the self-assembly of novel metalloporphyrin complexes and their use for organizing functional moieties with sub-nanometer precision.
Prior to joining Clark+Elbing, Wayne worked as a patent agent at a Boston-based intellectual property law firm, where he drafted and prosecuted patent applications in diverse technical fields, including small molecule pharmaceuticals, nanotechnology, and materials science.
Wayne is an inventor on a patent application and has co-authored an original research article in Langmuir, published by the American Chemical Society.
