Dr Roslyn Murray

What makes them awesome: Dr Murray has a Ph.D in Materials Technology from Waikato University, and is a registered Patent Attorney in both New Zealand and Australia. Roslyn oversees WaikatoLink’s Intellectual Property portfolio and liaises with internal and external stakeholders to both prosecute and maintain the portfolio.


She also works closely with the Business Development Managers and University Researchers to help commercialise the innovations that come out of the University.
Roslyn has been with Waikatolink for over two years, and prior to that worked for a high-tech start-up company before training to become a patent attorney at one of New Zealand’s leading IP firms.


In Dr Murray’s words: “ Tenby Powell, the Chairman of the Board for WaikatoLink saw your tweet and was inspired to contact you – and as WaikatoLink isn’t just about commercializing the Uni’s IP, it is also about creating links between the University and the community.


To have such a hurdle thrown at you so young, who wouldn’t want to help you?!  The only problem is you make me feel very lazy…. I’m 45 and feel decidedly like an underachiever next to you – hahahaha!”
