- About Deakin
Deakin University’s early career researchers continue to make their mark on the global scene, the latest Minoo Naebe, who has been selected to attend the Asia Nanotech Camp in Japan in February.
Minoo is one of just two Australian PhD students selected to attend the event, which coincides with a meeting of the world’s leading nanotechnologists.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Minoo said before flying off to Japan.
“It is recognition for my work, and also all the other people at Deakin working in nanotechnology.”
Professor Xungai Wang, Minoo’s supervisor and deputy director of the Centre for Material and Fibre Innovation, congratulated his talented young student on her selection.
“Minoo has made a great contribution to our work in nanocomposite fibres since moving to Deakin from Iran in 2005,” he said. The basic concept of Asia Nanotech Camp 2008 is to provide the emerging generation of nanotechnologists with an opportunity to be at the frontier of this field and equally importantly, to build personal relationships across the Asian nations.
The camp coincides with the world’s largest nanotech event, Nanotech 2008, also being help in Japan.
Minoo had to meet the following selection criteria to be invited to attend the camp:
