Skipper is a technical analyst working alongside patent attorneys to draft and prosecute patent applications for a variety of technologies. He has a unique blend of both highly technical training and English composition skills which allows for well-formatted and accurate patent-drafting results.

During his time as a graduate student, Skipper worked extensively at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory with contributions in multiple working groups, including both the bulk correlation and calibration teams. He was awarded the competitive Lee Fellowship for his academic accomplishments during graduate school at Lehigh University, and carried a 3.9+ GPA for both his Physics BS and MS degrees.

Skipper has worked on several computational challenges, including development of novel correlation observables using machine learning techniques, large data simulations, and automated calibration techniques for scintillator based particle detectors. He has experience developing with Keras, Tensorflow, Python, and C++. Skipper’s extensive mathematical and theoretical training allows him to readily assimilate information from a variety of engineering spheres, including signal and radiation processing, electromagnetic theory and implementation, quantum mechanical solutions, algorithmic processing, and big data manipulation.
