Patents

In the list below, dates are publication dates of the WO patent/application (granted/published by the World Intellectual Property Organization) if available, and of the US patent/application (granted/published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office) otherwise. For patents/applications of which I am first inventor, I wrote the original invention disclosure. For those of which I am co-inventor, I contributed to — and in some cases originated — the idea while a colleague wrote up the invention disclosure.
