27 - A BIONIC VOICE - Dr Farzaneh Ahmadi

June 9, 2021

A BIONIC VOICE

The ability to communicate is a fundamental human need, but it's one that does not come easily to those without a voice box. 

Dr Farzaneh Ahmadi is a scientist, engineer, inventor and entrepreneur who first came across the field of voice cloning while completing her PhD in Singapore. But for all of the technology's promise, Farzaneh also felt frustrated by having to turn away patients that came to her group seeking practical solutions rather than abstract research. Since then, Farzaneh has dedicated much of her professional life to the challenge of adapting this technology to restore the voices of laryngectomy patients. In 2019 that dream came one step closer as Farzaneh became the founder and CEO of Laronix, a spinout company based on her research.

So plug in to hear the very latest on Dr. Ahmadi's journey to the bionic voice.

April 28, 2021

INNOVATION IN SPADES
The dual inventions of computing and the internet transformed our society, and many industries are now barely recognisable from their peers of the 1950s. But while sectors like banking, communications, retail and entertainment have all ridden this wave of innovation, a few have been left behind. 

Professor Mathew Aitchison is on a mission to help the construction industry realise the potential of the information age. As interim CEO of Building 4.0 CRC, Mathew has helped bring together a coalition of researchers and industry partners to help transform the way we design, construct and monitor the built environment in the 21st century and beyond. 

Plug in to hear how a boy from rural Queensland became one of Australia's leading thinkers bringing architecture into the information age.

TWICE THE VICE

Being a Vice-Chancellor for close to two decades has allowed Paul Wellings to develop a unique perspective on science, research management and research commercialisation.  

Born into a military family, Paul's childhood was shaped by tours in India and Africa before he was sent back to the UK and the relative stability of boarding school. Despite being separated from his family Paul soon settled into his studies, winning accolades at Lancaster Royal Grammar School, Kings College London and Durham University before completing a PhD in Ecology at the University of East Anglia.

He has since had a long career as an academic and a research manager, establishing strong networks across both the UK and Australia, where he currently resides. He is a former deputy chief executive of the CSIRO, a director of ANSTO, vice-chancellor of Lancaster University and is presently concluding an 8 year tenure at the helm of the University of Wollongong. 

Join us for a tale of perseverance, leadership and strategy at the very top of the academic pecking order.
