How do you go from a Research Lab to a new start-up company? The topic for this year’s MacDiarmid Institute Regional Lecture Series is ‘To Industry and Beyond’, which focuses on pathways from science to industry.
In association with the Hawkes Bay Branch of the Royal Society Te Apārangi, join us at our final event of the series in Hawkes Bay (Taradale) on 28th November, when Aaron Marshall and Laura Domigan will talk about the way that materials science spins into the hi-tech sector, as well as show careers for science students outside of the traditional university pathways. We will also talk about the role of technology in sustainability and how we are trying to encourage greater participation by young people in science and science-led careers.
Professor Aaron Marshall is a Professor in Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Canterbury and a Principal Investigator in the MacDiarmid Institute. He is also Co-Founder and CTO of Zincovery, an award-winning start-up company that recycles the zinc from industrial waste.
Dr Laura Domigan is a Lecturer at the University of Auckland, a Principal Investigator in the MacDiarmid Institute and also sits on the MBIE Science Board. Laura’s current research involves creating biomaterials derived from natural polymers strong enough to replace or repair elements of the eye.
