With the current focus on sustainable living, you won’t want to miss an evening hearing about the organic future for mobile phones. You’ll also be treated to how Canberra researchers are reaching hypersonic speeds.

Growing organic mobile phones

Mr Ankur Sharma (Lecturer, Australian National University)
Have you heard about a new class of organic biodegradable materials that is being used to grow flexible electronic devices and mobile phones? You will if you come along to this fascinating presentation.

Ankur Sharma completed his PhD in March 2019 at the Australian National University and now works as a Lecturer at ANU. His research involves working with new nano materials for electronic device applications.

Hypersonics: fast, hot and exciting

Dr Bianca Capra (Senior Lecturer, UNSW Canberra)
Got a need for speed? Challenges associated with traveling faster then 6,000km per hour include extreme heating, interaction between the air and vehicle, and fuel ignition. Find out how local researchers are addressing these issues.

Dr Capra is a mechanical and aerospace engineer working in the field of hypersonics. She has worked in ground-based experimental testing, numerical analysis and flight test of hypersonic vehicles. She has both a BE and a PhD in aerospace engineering.
