Marcus Browne focuses his practice on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, due diligence reviews, and general intellectual property counseling. His strong technical background in electrical engineering enables him to work with clients in a range of technologies including analog and digital electronics, communication systems (including 3G and 4G protocols), sensors and instrumentation, control systems, signal processing, embedded systems, and power distribution systems.
Prior to joining the firm, Marcus was a patent agent at Lando & Anastasi. He also worked for ExxonMobil Research & Engineering, where he evaluated new instrumentation technologies for incorporation into global projects. In addition, he worked on a capital project design and cost estimation for global projects relating to plant instrumentation. Marcus was named an ExxonMobil Technical Scholar by senior technical and managerial staff for two consecutive years.
Throughout his undergraduate and graduate studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Marcus undertook a number of research and design projects. He led a team sponsored by United Technologies Corporation that designed and modeled an innovative predictive control system for a fuel cell bus fleet to minimize operating and maintenance costs as well as created an algorithm to quantify and correct barrel distortion in digital camera images for a camera based ballot scanning system to improve overall system accuracy.
