Megan Hamilton

Technology Analyst

Professional Profile

Megan’s detail-oriented analysis helps Erise’s patent prosecution team draft strong patents and provides litigators with actionable information for inter partes reviews (IPRs). While her academic background is in chemistry and biomedical engineering, Megan’s Ph.D. work trained her to learn about and analyze technologies across multiple industries.

Prior to joining Erise, Megan was a senior research scientist, leveraging her extensive expertise in polymer chemistry to innovate in the design and formulation of hydrogel-based delivery systems, three of which resulted in patent applications. Megan also was a lecturer for undergraduate and graduate level Introduction to Biomedical Engineering courses at the University of Kansas, covering quantitative lung physiology, biomaterials and tissue Engineering.
