I am a patent specialist in the field of medical and healthcare technologies with a long-standing experience as a patent examiner at the European Patent Office. I have a broad, extensive background in diverse fields of biomedical engineering. Moreover, I have also acquired comprehensive knowledge and experience in patent related matters.
While my primary professional interests are focused on patent prosecution and patent searching in the field of medical and healthcare technologies, my side interests include independent research and innovation across and beyond biomedical engineering and intellectual property rights.
Concluding patent examination from search to post-grant proceedings in the field of medical technology.
Creating and maintaining patent classification systems.
The doctoral studies in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics consisted of theoretical courses and scientific research. The courses provided with deep insights into the research methods and methodology in both medical engineering and medical physics. The aim of the individual research project was the development of new methods for the measurement and analysis of evoked otoacoustic emissions.
The studies included a two-semester research fellowship at the University of Applied Sciences Wismar in Germany.
The postgraduate programme in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics was an interdisciplinary programme covering both medical engineering and medical physics disciplines. The curriculum provided advanced knowledge in engineering and physics, as well as in medicine.
Master thesis title: "Compensation of psychoacoustic hearing disorders".
Engineering project title: "Hearing aid design and manufacturing".
The undergraduate programme in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics was an interdisciplinary programme covering both medical engineering and medical physics disciplines. The curriculum provided a comprehensive foundation in engineering and physics, as well as in medicine.
Thesis title: "Measurement of acoustic impedance of the human middle ear".
The studies included a semester-long student research fellowship at the University of Applied Sciences Wismar in Germany.
Riga Radio Electronic Equipment Vocational School (nowadays called Riga Technical College) provided both secondary education and vocational training. The curriculum covered subjects required by the general secondary education as well as subjects related to design and manufacturing of radio-electronic instrumentation.
Diploma project title: "Power supply design and manufacturing".
