I am an associate in our Düsseldorf office and a member of the intellectual property team. I advise our domestic and international clients on all matters of patent and utility model law, with a special focus on patent infringement proceedings.

I was born and grew up in China. After studying the German language and German literature in Beijing and Göttingen, I studied law at the Universities of Freiburg and Konstanz. After my first state exam, I completed my legal internship in Berlin and Luxembourg (European Court of Justice).

After the second state exam, I completed my PhD thesis and in parallel worked as a legal assistant in the field of patent litigation at an international law firm in Frankfurt am Main. Since my admission to the bar in 2020 I have been working at Bird & Bird.
