Director's Message

Dear Colleagues,

Many thanks to Professor Hoe Tan for leading the School so ably over the past two weeks.

The pic of the week shows Robert Ward and I enjoying a day off at the Mutianyu Great Wall (Jong Chow is behind the camera).  The recent College of Science delegation is one of a series lead by our Deans over the past few years that have developed several significant relationships with top Chinese institutions around research-led teaching and HDR training.  I am grateful to Jong Chow and Jay Poria for their efforts in building these links. We had fun, visiting 13 fabulous universities, and I'll return in October to explore a few more. The photo at the end shows Robert presenting on the ANU contributions to LIGO at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou.  Science presentations like this are a crucial part building lasting engagements.  My trip report will highlight different ways you might like to engage, here and in China.  Please speak to your Head when it comes out.

Join me next Thursday at the John Carver Seminar Series.  It’s a great line up, showcasing our excellent student research.

Please ensure that you have engaged with your Department in planning for the next 3-6-9, being scheduled now.

Have a good long weekend,

Tim
