Dr. Jiang focuses his practice on patent prosecution, PTAB post grant proceedings, client counseling, and litigation in various technical fields covering semiconductors, optoelectronic devices, optical devices, microelectronic devices, electrical circuits, computer software and hardware, telecommunications, and business methods, etc. 

Before joining ANOVA Law Group, Dr. Jiang concentrated on patent prosecution, litigation, and client counseling as a technical specialist, student associate, and patent agent at Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP, and gained significant expertise in patent prosecution and litigation, including post grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. 

Prior to starting his patent practice, Dr. Jiang had been a successful researcher in the field of semiconductors. While pursuing his Ph.D. at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Dr. Jiang worked as a research assistant in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, where he focused on the study of performance characteristics of semiconductor quantum dot (QD) lasers. Before entering Virginia Tech, Dr. Jiang had also done a lot of work on semiconductor material growth and device fabrication, including silicon-based devices and III-V compound semiconductor based devices. During his study, Dr. Jiang has gained extensive knowledge on subjects such as semiconductor physics, lasers, LEDs, optical waveguide, materials properties, and electrical circuits.
