"I enjoy working with different kinds of people and solving problems. In this line of work, one gets to meet a lot of really smart and inspiring people, and there is something new to learn every day. At times, the discussions can get extremely technical, but things can also be really fun. It's rewarding to look for and find solutions to tricky IPR problems."
