Katherine Nicewander


Intellectual Property Specialist, LICENSE

In addition to patent portfolio management, Katherine facilitates the process from invention disclosure to patent prosecution. She also works closely with LINK to support academic start-up, commercialization, and licensing endeavors.

Be careful when telling Katherine you "need it yesterday" as she's likely to side-eye that letter opener she leaves sitting conspicuously on her desk (don't worry, she never actually uses  it—even for mail). Truthfully, though, Katherine’s always willing to jump in to get the job done.

Katherine studied Psychology at Campbell University.
