Tsoline works on patent prosecution and litigation in the areas of electronics and computer technologies, software and medical devices. Tsoline's practice with the litigation group includes due diligence, patent portfolio analyses, infringement opinions, claim construction and development of invalidity contentions. She provides technical expertise and strategic advice regarding intellectual property prosecution and litigation matters, for clients ranging from multi-national corporations to startup companies and universities. Her expertise and extensive research experience span a wide range of technologies, including aerospace and defense systems, robotics, telecommunications, lasers and optics, sensors and instrumentation, embedded systems and artificial intelligence. Tsoline's technical versatility enables her to work with clients across different industries.
Prior to joining the firm, Tsoline was a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, where she researched novel test and verification techniques for complex hardware and software systems. Tsoline received the Ph.D. from MIT in Aerospace Systems Engineering, under the mentorship of Prof. Daniel Hastings, MIT Dean and former Chief Scientist of the U.S. Air Force. She developed novel tools for the design and development of flexible products, with application to unmanned aerial vehicles and networks to perform Intelligence Reconnaissance and Surveillance missions. At MIT, Tsoline also developed an automated diagnostic and fault management software to enable robust operations of complex, safety-critical systems with both hardware and software enabled functionality, which was demonstrated on operational scenarios of the Earth Observing One spacecraft. Prior to MIT, she worked at York University on a novel laser communication technology and numerical simulation of magnetic traps for Bose-Einstein condensation, and at Spectral Applied Research Inc. on characterizing new types of infrared sensors to assess their fault-tolerance and suitability for use in satellite based products.
Tsoline's research has led to several large R&D proposals that were funded at MIT, resulting in a combined total of over three million dollars of research revenue. Her research has been sponsored by NASA, JPL, DARPA, DoD, the Singapore Defense Science and Technology Agency and the DSO National Labs. She also has extensive experience in industrial research collaborations, working with corporations such as BAE Systems, IBM and the Toyota Motor Corporation. She has also worked with startup companies through consulting activities focused on technology assessment, patent strategy and commercialization.
