In the spotlight for strategic plan launch
Engineering PhD student Junior Nomani was centre stage at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus for Deakin’s LIVE the future: Agenda 2020 strategic plan launch, giving the address on behalf of the student body at the Campus.
'I felt very honoured and privileged to be asked to speak on behalf of the student body at the LIVE the future launch event,’ Junior says. 'After hearing one of Deakin’s new strategies was improving on the student experience, I reflected on my own experiences as a student and spoke about some of the things that make the student life enjoyable and fulfilling.’
Junior came to Deakin in July last year and is enjoying the experience.
'Moving to Deakin, was one of the best decisions I have made - being mentored by expert researchers with access to state of the art research equipment and facilities, there’s not a lot more you could ask for.’
Junior’s PhD research focuses on the metal machining of materials which are difficult to cut, primarily dealing with duplex stainless steel alloys. He says the machining of duplex alloys is highly problematic and his research seeks to 'fully understand the long-established issues so that we may offer better cutting solutions to improve on manufacturing productivity and production costs’.
