Dr. Carina Ehrig studied physics at TU Dresden with focus on biophysics. During her studies she spent four months as a student research in the lab of Dr. Patricia Bassereau at the Institut Curie in Paris. There, she studied the process of lipid diffusion in biological membranes. In her diploma thesis in the lab of Prof. Petra Schwille she developed physical methods for the investigation of cell division in E. Coli bacteria.
In 2011 she started her PhD at the Corporate Technology section of Siemens AG in Erlangen. The work was supervised by Prof. Christoph Brabec from the institute Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology (i-Meet) of FAU Erlangen/Nuremberg and focused on studying the degradation process of anorganic semiconductors in photovoltaic or light-emitting devices, especially silicides and gallium nitride.
After completing her doctorate, Carina started a patent attorney training in 2016 at Kailuweit & Uhlemann. During her training she studied ‘Law for Patent Attorneys’ at the FernUniversität Hagen and successfully completed a two-months legal internship at the 15th civil senate of the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court.
In February 2020, after she successfully passed the qualifying examination, she was sworn in as a patent attorney. Since April 2020, Carina is partner at Kailuweit & Uhlemann. She is also admitted as a representative before the European Patent Office, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Unified Patent Court (UPC).
She is supporting clients in searches and is mainly involved with drafting and prosecution of patent and utility model applications in the field of physics, material science and medical technology. Furthermore, she focuses on trademark law.
Carina is a member of the Federal Association of Patent Attorneys, the Saxon Patent Attorney Association, women in ip, and the DPG (German Physical Society).
Her working languages are German and English.
