Annie joined Durie Tangri after attending the U.C. Berkeley School of Law, where she served as an extern for Judge Haywood S. Gilliam in the United States District Court for the District of Northern California, served as a supervising editor for the California Law Review, and was selected for the Order of the Coif. Annie’s passion for understanding new technologies and their intersection with the law drove her to focus her studies on intellectual property and privacy issues. She was a research assistant on global privacy law for Professor Paul M. Schwartz, received the Law & Technology Certificate from the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, and authored a note for the Berkeley Technology Law Journal on algorithmic auditing and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act selected as the best note in the volume.
Prior to law school, Annie worked as an automation engineer at Counsyl, a reproductive genetic testing company, where she helped build an automated cell-free DNA extraction system through product launch. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering with an emphasis in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California, where she was a Trustee Scholar, and selected for Tau Beta Pi and the Order of the Torch.
Annie is licensed to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office.
In her spare time, Annie enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee, exploring the outdoors, and striving to reach a point where she can say she “plays guitar.”
