Nourin Alsharif assists the firm in patent prosecution related to mechanical technologies. With a background in mechanical engineering, she has extensive knowledge in the areas of nanotechnology, photonics, and multiscale materials characterization.
Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Nourin completed her PhD as an interdisciplinary Doctoral Research Fellow with Professor Keith A. Brown at Boston University. Her graduate research involved the interrogation of emergent properties of nanostructured soft materials and interfaces. Specifically, she designed novel scanning probe architectures using two-photon lithography, collaborated with the CCDC-SC to develop a high-throughput surface chemistry assay for multifunctional materials, and investigated glass transition phenomena in polymeric nanoparticles. Accordingly, Nourin’s expertise includes a variety of micro/nanoscale fabrication and characterization techniques. Her research efforts have led to several scientific publications, conference presentations, and patent applications. During her graduate training, she also worked as a teaching assistant for an engineering instrumentation course, mentored more than five undergraduate students in a research setting, and engaged in several STEM outreach programs.
