Katrin Wald studied material science at technical university of Dresden. During her studies she completed a six-month internship at Höganäs AB, Sweden dealing with powder metallurgical steel.
She wrote her diploma thesis at Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research (IFW) Dresden investigating magnetic properties of SmCo-bi- and trilayers, deposited by pulsed laser deposition.
From 2007 to 2016 Katrin worked as scientific employee at Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP) Dresden, where she was active in several projects concerning photovoltaic active absorber layers, like amorphous silicon or CdTe, and graphene layers deposited by physical vapour deposition.
In the end of 2016 she joined the patent law firm Kailuweit & Uhlemann as patent professional. She mainly supports our patent attorneys with patent research and during the entire process of drafting of patent and utility model applications up to granting.
