1995 to 2007


E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. INC


Central Research & Development, Patents Group


Information Scientist - PhD level


He was the primary chemical structure searcher at E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. Inc for 12 years. He possesses expertise in the entire spectrum of chemical searching methods, databases and resources required for a thoroughly comprehensive search on chemical substances, both generic and Markush disclosures, chemical process/preparation as well as chemical formulation patents. He has experience in searching patents, literature, substances as well as non-traditional data sources and can search an extremely wide scope, using obscure methods and resources as well as traditional ones if necessary.

My experience and expertise includes all types of searching, Domination/Freedom to Operate, Anticipation/Patentability, Validity/Infringement as well as general Background/State of the Art searches. My typical searches during employment at this company were worldwide in scope and very rarely were limited to US patents only. Most patentability searches were of very high complexity, such as search queries with 4-6 pages of R-groups, so I am able to competently perform a search at any level of complexity. My experience includes producing a highly refined, value added search report of only highly relevant references and disclosures.
