Andrea Gabert counsels clients in US and foreign patent prosecution in a variety of areas related to chemistry, including pharmaceuticals, organic materials, chemical processes, polymers, diagnostic devices and methodology, and food product and testing devices. She focuses her practice on patent prosecution, due diligence and portfolio development, and particularly enjoys managing extensive worldwide portfolios and counseling clients to maximize their protection. Andrea’s scientific background includes inorganic, organic, organometallic, and polymer chemistry.
Andrea received her doctorate degree at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Richard R. Schrock, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 2005. Her doctoral research included organometallic catalysis and the synthesis and characterization of chemical compounds and polymers, including triblock copolymers and liquid crystal mesogens.
Before entering graduate school, Andrea participated in the cooperative education program at her undergraduate institute. Her research experience through this program included food product testing, organometallic research, and the development of drug analysis methods.
Andrea enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, and time in the kitchen, cooking ethnic cuisines and cake decorating.
