Presented by: 
Professor David Sholl, Georgia Institute of Technology
Fri 2 Jun, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Room 139, Goddard Building (08), St Lucia Campus

This talk will discuss some of the joys, trials and challenges of adapting from a background in pure science (namely, an undergraduate degree in Theoretical Physics) to a career of applied research that now includes extensive collaboration with industry partners and founding a startup company. I will highlight some critical problems of global significance that can potentially be addressed in part by development of new materials. I will also discuss several “showstoppers” that often dramatically limit the real world impact of academic research (including my own).

All are welcome to attend.
