Jinrong Yuan, Ph.D., is a registered patent agent at Bayes PLLC. Jinrong is experienced in drafting and prosecuting patent applications utilizing a wide range of electrical technologies. Jinrong has prepared and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications in electrical, software, Internet, medical device, and business methods field, such as in the areas of semiconductor device and manufacturing, display technology, thin film growth/characterization, software and Internet, wireless communication, circuit design, and nanotechnology. She also assisted in post-grant review proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and assisted in invalidity and infringement analysis.

Jinrong received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia. Her doctoral research focused on III-V semiconductor materials and photodetectors. She designed, fabricated, and tested a multi-spectral photodetector for simultaneous detection of short and mid-infrared wavelengths. She had four years of hand-on microfabrication experience. Jinrong is familiar with various control systems. At Harbin Institute of Technology, Jinrong’s bachelor research focused on design and simulation of a neural-network based load feedback system.

Prior to joining Bayes, Jinrong practiced over four years at two IP boutique law firms in the Washington DC metro area.
