Congratulations to Prof Hoe Tan, Dr Siva Karuturi and Prof Jagadish on being awarded a large ARENA grant for their research, “Improving Efficiency, Durability and Cost-effectiveness of III-V Semiconductors for Direct Water Electrolysis”. This three year grant has a total project budget of almost $3.5M. It is fantastic to see a grant usually won in engineering facilities come to our School.
Welcome back to Andrea Butler, who has been enjoying a brief secondment in Computer Science as acting School Manager.
A reminder about the Town Hall meeting in Huxley today at 10am. The meeting is to inform the other Schools in our area about the RSPE Building project. With the Le Couteur building being handed over we can expect to see some big changes to our precinct over the next few months. Hindmarsh will present an animation showing the construction phases over the next two years. This will be put on the School intranet afterwards.
Jong and I had an excellent trip to China last week meeting with parents and potential students in the Beijing and Tianjin areas. This week’s pic shows a gathering of parents at Beijing Institute of Technology to hear about our program and pastoral care.
It’s good to be back and my thanks to A/Prof Fu for acting Director last week.
Have a great week,
