    • Biography

    • Belinda Haupt has been active in the patent world since 2009, when she made the switch from managing a medical research programme to V.O.

      Prior to that, Belinda studied chemistry at the University of Newcastle. She then undertook her PhD in polymer science at the Australian National University, in 1998. Following this, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in biophysics at Leiden University, and in nano-medicine at University College London.

      Belinda’s goal is to provide a tailor-made approach for every client, ensuring prompt delivery of work and efficient communication. Her focus is on obtaining patent protection for her client’s inventions and strategically managing their patent portfolios.
