Come and hear MacDiarmid Institute scientists talk about how materials science is offering a greener future for our planet.
Our scientists will talk about how solar energy materials, new battery technologies, and carbon capture can offer a zero carbon future.
We are not climate scientists and this lecture is not about climate change. We are materials scientists and we’ll be speaking about research underway here in New Zealand that may reduce and perhaps even remediate the effects of climate change. This will include new energy technologies, renewables, energy efficient computers, recyclable consumer electronics and the upcycling of natural materials to contribute to a renewable economy.

Dr Anna Garden is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Otago and an Associate Investigator in the MacDiarmid Institute.
Her current research is focused on using theoretical modelling to design new catalysts for sustainable industry and environmental remediation.
Dr Saurabh Bose is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Canterbury and an Associate Investigator in the MacDiarmid Institute.
His research is focused on creating computer chips that resemble the structures in our brain, which has many potential future applications.
