December 13, 2021

THOUGHT FOR FOOD

While many of us go through life without giving much thought to where our food comes from, Professor Cordelia Selomulya has built a career on it.

Born and raised in Indonesia, Cordelia first came to Australia as an international student undertaking a chemical engineering degree at the University of New South Wales. At every turn Cordelia has been a stellar researcher, topping her class and becoming a published scientific author even before her PhD began. During a 14-year career at Monash University in Melbourne Cordelia became increasingly interested in food research, ultimately helping the Australian dairy industry adopt and improve the spray drying processes that underpin one of the fastest growing segments of Australia's food exports.

Since 2019, Cordelia has been serving as the Director of Research and Commercialisation at the Future Food Systems CRC, where she is helping Australia rethink the way we grow, process and export a wide variety of food and nutritional products.

Plug in to hear how this high-flying student built an outstanding academic career by working hand-in-hand with industry.

INVENTION AND REINVENTION

As a young engineer Richard Dale was hired by a university spinout that looked set to revolutionise the world of asset management. It was an exciting job at a company that was growing fast, building new products and entering new industries... right up until the money ran out.

It was the beginning of a lifelong journey that has seen him become one of the leading startup investors and advisors in Australia. Among many other career highlights, Richard was a founding partner of Sydney Angels, an organisation he helped grow from a whiteboard concept in early 2008 to one of the country's leading startup investment hubs.
