Samantha Page, Ph.D. is a Patent Agent with expertise in the fields of polymers and materials science, specifically on matters related to polymer chemistry, polymer composites, nanotechnology, and chemical engineering. Before joining Cantor Colburn as a patent practitioner, Samantha completed her Ph.D. in the Polymer Science and Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, focusing on synthetic polymer chemistry. Samantha’s doctoral research centered on developing a new synthetic polymer-based platform for biomedical applications, though her time at UMass provided exposure to a variety of polymers tailored for different applications including polymer/nanoparticle composites, polymer assembly, and polymers for electronic applications. Samantha has experience in patent application preparation, as well as both foreign and domestic prosecution. She works closely with various leading polymer materials companies as well as major research universities, with technologies ranging from monomer synthesis through end-use applications.
