    • Education

This episode is part of our Word IP Day special, that this year is about ‘Women and IP: Accelerating innovation and creativity’. To honour such an important subject, we have interviewed four successful women inventors with extensive IP knowledge. Their stories and messages of encouragement for anyone interested in pursuing their careers in the STEM industries, and particularly for young women, are inspiring. If you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you, please remember to share and follow us!



In this episode we talk with Dr. Yufei Blankenship. She is a Principal Researcher of Standardization with Ericsson. She has more than 20 years of experience in wireless communications system design and standardization. She is an active inventor with more than 200 issued US patents. In 2020, she was named an “Inventor of the Year” by Ericsson for her work with 3GPP 4G and 5G standards.



We talked with her about the importance of team work, contributing to the next little step towards a big breakthrough and her own journey to where she is today.
