Event details

Come and hear MacDiarmid Institute researchers talk about the new Research Programmes included in the MacDiarmid Institute’s new research plan, which began with the start of their new contract on 1st July 2021.

Our scientists will talk about the four research programmes: Towards Zero Waste (Reconfigurable Systems), Towards Zero Carbon (Catalytic Architectures), Towards Low Energy Tech (Future Computing) and Sustainable Resource use (Mātauranga Māori Research Programme). They will also talk about the MacDiarmid Institute and what the start of the new contract means for us.

Associate Professor Carla Meledandri - Principal Investigator with the MacDiarmid Institute and an Associate Professor in Chemistry at the University of Otago. Her current research involves the use of colloidal and surface chemistry techniques to develop new functional nanoscale materials for a broad range of applications, from dentistry to energy storage.

Dr Anna Garden - Principal Investigator with the MacDiarmid Institute and a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Otago. Her research interests focus on using theoretical modelling to design new catalysts for sustainable industry and environmental remediation.

Not in Wanaka? We're also hosting this event in Nelson (11 November), Napier (15 November) and Tauranga (22 November).

Otherwise let us know where you'd like us to visit next!
