I subsequently spent two years as apostdoctoral fellow at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (now theThomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility) while it was under construction inNewport News, Virginia. My main focus was theoretical research to support the lab’splanned experimental program. I then took a position as an editor of Physical Review Bfor seven years (shifting from nuclear physics to condensed-matter physics), where Imanaged the peer-review process and supervised the journal’s scientific editorial staff.While at Physical Review, I attended law school at night, graduating with a J.D. in 1998.After two years at a large (~250 attorneys) intellectual-property firm in Manhattan whereI practiced both patent prosecution and patent litigation, I moved to Denver to take aposition focusing exclusively on prosecution at another large firm based in SanFrancisco. I stayed with that firm for somewhat over ten years, progressing fromassociate to partner to equity partner. In 2008, I published the book Nanotechnology:Legal Aspects with CRC Press, and I currently divide my time working as a patentattorney at a smaller firm (~15 attorneys) and actively pursuing a variety of fiction andnonfiction writing projects.Contact: PBoucher@mfblaw.com
