Dr. Sharon Webb

VP, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Dr. Webb has been managing intellectual property matters for the Soane family of companies since 2006. At Carbogenesis, she works closely with inventors to capture their inventions in patent applications and collaborates with outside counsel to protect those applications with issued patents.
