Mr. Rodriguez is a Principal with the firm, and is involved in all aspects of patent law, including patent strategy, procurement, and counseling.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Rodriguez was involved in patent preparation and prosecution for several years at an intellectual property boutique law firm in Connecticut, at an intellectual property boutique law firm in Virginia, and at a university technology transfer office in Virginia.

In his chemical engineering graduate work, Mr. Rodriguez synthesized and validated carbon nanotube hybrid MOS-based biochemical sensors functionalized with aptamers for the selective detection of protein targets, as well as metal oxide nanomaterials for the electrochemical detection of redox targets.  In his doctoral work entitled “Techniques to Quantify Proteins in Visceral Adipose Tissue and Their Use to Evaluate Inflammation and Fibrosis”, Mr. Rodriguez developed novel protein extraction and quantification methods, and evaluated correlations to propose signaling mechanisms in disease pathogenesis.  Based on his technical background and professional experience, Mr. Rodriguez counsels clients in a variety of chemical and life science areas including drug compounds and formulations, nucleic acids, peptides, assays, recombinant technology, polymer membranes, scaffolds, and coatings, nanomaterials, chemical reactors, MEMS, sensors, and semiconductor fabrication and design.

Prior to, and during the entire time while completing his M.S. in Telecommunications, Mr. Rodriguez also acquired practical computer engineering experience managing the wide area backbone network of a major stock exchange having packet and circuit switched communications, information routing and switching equipment, and industrial protocols.  Based on his technical background and professional experience, Mr. Rodriguez counsels clients in a variety of computer engineering areas including computer architectures, networks, and software involving security, memory, graphics, payment, and communications technology.
