Siyuan Ge is an associate with Middleton Reutlinger, focusing primarily on patent preparation and prosecution. She obtained her B.S. in Materials Physics from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), and M.S. in Material Engineering from University of Virginia. She received in-depth academic training in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, worked at three research laboratories, co-authored 6 peer-reviewed publications in international scientific journals (e.g., Electrochemical Acta), and had extensive experimental/industrial experience in the preparation and testing of Li-ion batteries, electrodeposition and characterization (SEM/EDS, XRD, and VSM) of magnetic thin films, materials processing & failure analysis (four-point probe, hardness testing, and optical microscopy), thermal spray coatings, laser-assisted machining, direct metal laser sintering (DMLS, also known as “metal 3D printing”), and first principle calculations.
Prior to attending law school, Siyuan worked over two years as a technical specialist in a Virginia IP boutique, drafting and prosecuting patent applications for multinational corporations, research institutions, and individuals. During law school, she worked as a summer law clerk for two IP boutiques in the Greater New York area, gaining experience in patent prosecution, trademark litigation, and opinion work. She has prepared and prosecuted patent applications in a wide range of technologies, including: digital power supply, data stream encoding/decoding, information encryption/decryption, input method, solid-state drives, APIs, content delivery network, image/video processing, virtual keyboard, virtual machines, VR/AR, message displaying/notification, wideband antenna, MIMO channels, knowledge graph, protocol stack, display panels, turbines, optical fiber, semiconductor devices, headphone, guiding robot, lighting, blood pressure monitors, heat-dissipation fan, cartridge, plasma processing, ceramic preparation, musical instrument, wearable devices, batteries, and chemicals. In addition, she has prepared and prosecuted over 30 design patent applications for articles including GUIs, optical time-domain reflectometry, thermal stripper, cable tester, printer, cartridge, packing box, bottles, and light bulbs.
While at law school, she also interned with the Office of Research Commercialization (ORC) at North Carolina State University, gaining experience in technology commercialization & licensing, patent preparation & prosecution, and global patent portfolios. She also participated in the IP clinic, providing pro bono services in prior art searching, trademark prosecution, as well as addressing clients’ specific concerns in copyright infringement.
