- Trainee Patent Attorney
Nadia Salman graduated in 2014 with a BSc in Mechanical Engineering. Within the broad field of mechanical engineering she gained an interest in the study of materials and design. For her research graduation thesis she did an internship at the Computational & Experimental Materials Engineering Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University, USA where she learned to simulate materials on the nano-scale using molecular dynamics. The main objective of the project was to study the phenomena of hydrogen embrittlement in steel using computer simulations.
After graduation, Nadia joined the Center of Doctoral Training in Integrated Tribology at the University of Leeds, UK where she started her PhD research project. The project focused on the development of a particle-based model and simulation tool to investigate materials on the meso-scale to better understand the fundamental behaviour of friction and wear. At the Center she also developed a strong appreciation and background in the science of tribology, where for example, she was also involved in a project for the evaluation of self-lubricating bearing materials for bushes used in aircraft landing gears for Airbus.
Since February 2019, Nadia has worked at V.O. as a Trainee Patent Attorney where she uses her technical background as well as her passion for law, consultancy and innovation to build a career as a patent attorney.
