It’s Not Genetic Genealogy, But Here’s What I’ve Been Working On

As many of you know, I am currently a second-year law student preparing for a career in intellectual property. Last semester, I began work as a research assistant for one of my first-year professors. The project we worked on, examining portrayals of the United States patent system in the newspaper media, turned into two papers. Naturally I think the papers are great and it was interesting to see the results, especially considering all the attention the patent system has received lately.

  1. And I didn’t know you did your PhD here! It’s a small world, isn’t it? I actually did my PhD here in Syracuse too, but at a different institution (Upstate). I moved here in 2000, just as you were leaving, apparently.

  2. Small world indeed. My groups main collaborator, Barry Knox, is at Upstate (I think he’s still there), so I’ve been to Weiskotten Hall a few times.

  3. He’s still there, and I was in the same department (biochem). I didn’t move too far away – I can see my old lab out of windows at the law school!
