Thays Carvalho earned her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF – RJ) of Brazil. After graduating, she began a postgraduate course at Purdue University, where she obtained hands-on experience in laboratory work with a focus on chemical biology. Thays relocated later to the UK, where she recently received her Masters by Research at The University of Warwick. 

Prior to her legal career, Thays had a brief spell within the pharmaceutical industry during a summer internship at Abbvie in Chicago, Illinois, USA. She has also spent some time in Saudi Arabia to engage in studies with unnatural amino acids production at KAUST.

Thays became involved in a patent prosecution project between the UK and Brazil, which begins her journey into patent law. Realizing this was a quite exciting way she could apply her ample scientific background outside the laboratory, she has decided to pursue a career as a Patent Attorney.

Outside of Gutwein Law, Thays is married and the proud mother of one child. She also enjoys travelling (but not so much with a toddler).
