Andrew Maher assists the firm in patent prosecution in areas related to chemistry and materials science. Andrew serves clients both in industry and in academia in technology spaces that include electrochemical and energy storage devices, water treatment, microfluidics, gas separation, carbon emissions mitigation, medical devices, ultrasensitive assays, 3D printing, polymers, soft materials and agriculture treatment.
Andrew’s experience includes assisting with patentability and freedom to operate searching and analysis, litigation support, preparation of third-party preissuance submissions, preparation of affidavits, patent portfolio diligence, preparation of licensing agreements, and regulatory compliance for public companies.
Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Andrew completed his doctoral research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked under the supervision of Professor Daniel G. Nocera.
Andrew’s doctoral research focused on the chemistry of small molecule activation and fuel formation, with a particular focus on reactions relevant to solar and biological energy conversion. Andrew applied synthetic, electrochemical and optical spectroscopic techniques to investigate the mechanisms of electrocatalytic and photocatalytic hydrogen generation by several classes of nickel and cobalt-containing complexes and materials.
