Anthony Kavanagh

Anthony works within the Engineering and Tech team at Carpmaels & Ransford. His practice primarily focuses on medical devices, imaging technology, display devices, and machine-learning applications but has prosecuted applications ranging from pipe connectors to quantum computers. Anthony prides himself in obtaining protection for his clients in contentious cases and challenging areas of technology.

Anthony first trained as a Physicist and worked as a researcher in atomic and medical physics at Queens University Belfast, the University of electro-communication in Tokyo, the Institute of Cancer Research, and the University of Oxford.

During his time in academia, he co-authored over 30 academic papers, invented a patented radiotherapy technique, and produced software to optimise radiotherapy and to allow 4D imaging. Working with industrial partners, he developed radiation calibration tools, fast silent mechanical shutters, robotic gantries, image analysis tools and methods, and biofluorescence tomographic imaging facilities.

His free time is normally spent in colourful, loud, environments with his children but occasionally he has time to code twitter bots and argue about probability.
