Congratulations are in order for two of our NanoCentre PhD graduates, Dr Katherine Moore, and Dr Christiaan Ridings, who are 2015 South Australian Science Excellence Awards finalists in the category of PhD Research Excellence. The awards showcase the critical importance of science and research to the development of industry and society as a whole, and compliment the national Prime Minister’s Prize’s for Science. Flinders University and the NanoCentre have previously seen success in this award category, with Dr Daniel Tune winning the prize in 2014 for his work with single-walled carbon nanotube photovoltaics. The 2015 winner will be announced during science Week, August 13, along with winners in other categories, such as the South Australian Scientist of the Year and Early Career STEM Educator of the Year, for which Dr Maria Parappilly is nominated.
In the meantime, please show your support for both of our PhD nominees, as well Maria, by voting (click here) in the People’s Choice Awards! It only takes 60 seconds and helps to recognise members within our school.
