Gloria is a registered Chinese patent attorney and an Australian patent technical specialist. She is experienced in handling patent matters in a range of technologies from ultrathin films to hair care products. She is presently studying to qualify as an Australian patent attorney.

Prior to joining Madderns, Gloria had worked as a Chinese patent attorney in top tier Chinese IP law firms for 10 years and acted for a number of well-known multi-national companies in the paints, lubricants, food, oil, and healthcare industries. During that time, her practice included patent prosecution, drafting patent specifications in Chinese and English, re-examination, and providing advice on infringement and validity.

Previously, Gloria studied at Tsinghua University and obtained a Master of Science specialising in materials science. She carried out research on crystallisation behaviour, thermodynamic behaviour, phase morphology and interfacial effect of polymers under confinement.

Outside of work, Gloria enjoys photography, tennis and cooking.
