Where will we get our energy in the future?

Professor Joe Shapter (Group Leader, University of Queensland)
One of the most important issues facing society today is the ability to supply the world’s energy requirements via both environmentally responsible and sustainable means. Hear some innovative ideas about how this challenge can be met.

Dr Shapter obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 1990. In 1996, he moved to Flinders University as Professor of Nanotechnology. In early 2018, he took up a role at UQ and is a Senior Group Leader in the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology.
