Trainee Patent Attorney

Fabian joined Potter Clarkson’s chemistry team in 2022 after completing his university studies and working for several years in industry.

As part of his master’s degree at University College London, he undertook a summer research project at CPE Lyon, France, working with organometallic catalysts in porous silica.

Following a period at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, where he worked on fuel cell materials, Fabian moved to Sweden to complete a PhD in inorganic chemistry at Stockholm University as a member of the Berzelii Center EXSELENT on Porous Materials.

During his PhD he worked on the synthesis of new porous materials and their application in catalysis. He also spent several months at UC Berkeley, California, where he worked on the production of metal–organic frameworks for carbon capture.

Until recently, Fabian has been working in the electronics industry involved in the development of equipment for printing adhesives and semiconductor manufacturing.
