About Clara

Clara B. Picallo, Ph.D., is a technology specialist in the Munich office of Fish & Richardson P.C. She focuses her practice on patent prosecution support in computer technologies. She has advanced knowledge of computer science topics, particularly computer-aided design and engineering across multiple domains, and is experienced in dealing with patentability issued relating to computer-implemented inventions. Her technical experience includes computer-aided design and engineering, automotive, aerospace, business methods, solar and wind energy production, petrochemistry, and 3D printing. During her PhD and career as a researcher, she developed simulations for the analysis of fracture mechanics, biological membranes and nanofluidics, among other topics. Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Picallo was a patent examiner at the European Patent Office (EPO) in the field of computer-aided design. Her seven years of experience at the EPO gave her broad expertise in computer science topics in a variety of fields and in evaluating the technical character of computer-implemented inventions.
