Background

​Erin Baker is a Technology Specialist, Patent Agent in the Austin office of Fish & Richardson. Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Baker earned her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin, where she performed research to examine the relationships among cellular mechanical properties, cellular movement, and disease progression in cancer. Dr. Baker’s research was interdisciplinary in nature and incorporated various aspects of mammalian cell culture, bio-rheological techniques, time-lapsed fluorescence imaging, and computational algorithms. Dr. Baker also has previous experience as an English language editor of engineering manuscripts at American Journal Experts, as a manufacturing engineer at Applied Materials, Inc., and as a product engineering intern at General Motors Co.
