Craig advises clients on patent matters in the fields of physics, electronics, computing, mechanical engineering and materials science. He has considerable experience of drafting and prosecuting patent specifications for inventions in the nanotechnology sector, including electrical storage cells, graphene applications, environmental sensors, user interfaces and deformable electronics. 

Craig achieved a first class degree in Chemical Physics from the University of Glasgow, and then went on to complete his PhD in solid state physics at the same institution. Craig’s PhD involved the fabrication of thin film magnetic samples as potential storage “bits” using electron beam lithography and their subsequent analysis using Lorentz transmission electron microscopy. 

Craig entered the patent profession in 2007 when he started as a trainee at a private practice in Newcastle-upon-Tyne before joining Potter Clarkson in 2009. 

During his PhD, Craig was awarded the JK Hunter Memorial Prize and the Thomson Experimental Prize for his research.
