Yvonne Morris is cofounder and CEO of IP Toolworks, a company founded with the goal of helping attorneys respond to rejections from the USPTO more effectively by leveraging a wealth of publicly available but previously inaccessible information. Yvonne holds a Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of science. Her scholarly research has encompassed the complexities of knowledge disputes within eighteenth and nineteenth-century periodical literature and scientific correspondence, a topic she believes has special resonance with the patent prosecution process today.
