Zosia Zielinski is a patent agent trainee in our Ottawa office. She practices in our Intellectual Property group with a focus on patent drafting and patent prosecution.
Zosia completed her B.Sc. with Honours in Chemistry and Minor in Mathematics at the University of Prince Edward Island in 2012, during which she worked on a computational model for electronic structure analysis, and also conducted research in natural product isolation, characterization, and biological activity screening. Zosia is completing her Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Ottawa, for which her research involved the free radical autoxidation (peroxidation) of hydrocarbons, as well as the study of antioxidant compounds that slow the process. In particular, she worked on elucidating the mechanism of cholesterol autoxidation and its links to degenerative disease.
