Edward Laughton

Trainee Patent Attorney

Ed joined J A Kemp as a trainee patent attorney in 2022 and is based in our London office.

Ed studied at the University of Exeter for an MEng in Mechanical Engineering, gaining knowledge in a wide range of areas including computational fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, software and computational engineering, and scientific programming. For his final year project he developed a computational model that combined buoyancy- and wind-driven ventilation types with LiDAR data in a custom age-of-air solver to investigate natural ventilation as a passive means of preventing overheating in buildings.

Before joining J A Kemp, Ed helped develop the scientific software Nektar++, giving him experience working with high-performance computing, massively parallel processing, and novel numerical methods.
