026 - INNOVATION IN SPADES - Prof. Mathew Aitchison

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.

March 17, 2021

GRIT AND BONES
At an age when most of her peers had barely heard of the term biomedical engineer - Maryam Parviz had already decided it was the career for her. 

Born to a partially deaf mother, Maryam witnessed the power of technology to transform human health in the form of hearing aids. Inspired, Maryam set herself on the path of science and technology, studying biomedical engineering at Iran's prestigious Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) before emigrating to Australia in 2012 to study under Prof. Justin Gooding of the University of New South Wales. 

Since then Maryam has not only complemented her PhD, but also a postdoc at the Institute for Biomedical Materials and Devices at UTS, as well as specialist training in medical device commercialisation at Cicada Innovations in Sydney. These experiences not only  gave her the skills to launch a biotechnology startup, but also helped to shape a lasting bond with her partner and co-founder Dr. Iman Manavitehrani.

Together, Maryam and Iman launched SDIP Innovations in 2018 with the intention of commercialising a novel bioresorbable scaffold material Iman had been working on. Now the company's CEO, Maryam is working from the QB3 Incubator in California to ensure their core technology fulfils its potential to revolutionise bone repair surgery. 

Join us for an inspiring tale of determination and discovery.

022 - SCHEMES AND TEAMS  - Rhys Cornock

022 - SCHEMES AND TEAMS - Rhys Cornock

March 2, 2021

SCHEMES AND TEAMS
Academic careers often rest on the outcome of highly competitive grant schemes. But moving beyond blue sky research also opens up new opportunities, with grants targeted at entrepreneurs, exporters and innovative businesses.

Born in south-west Sydney, Rhys Cornock is a scientist turned business consultant with a broad-based skillset. Initially trained in nanotechnology, Rhys' graduate job put him at the forefront of 3D printing, and eventually lead to the establishment of one of Australia's first clinical 3D printing hubs in St. Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne.

Ever in search of a challenge Rhys swapped his lab coat for a suit and tie in 2014, joining leading consulting firm Ernst and Young to help draft R+D tax incentive grant applications for large corporates. But after two years (and dabbling in van life), Rhys knew it was time to branch out on his own. 

Since establishing his own boutique consultancy Sprout Scientific, Rhys has been focused on the world of startups, helping deep-tech and social enterprise businesses put their best foot forward for public funding. 

Come for the van life, stay for the business advice.
