Our crew and colleagues at the World Science Festival in Brisbane @WSFBrisbane presenting a chemistry show to school students. Go Lewis and Vish! So important to anchor scientific thinking in society @QUTmaterials @QUT

Looking very much forward to this awesome conference!

Finally some refreshing views in the #AUKUS space, which is nearly completely missing from the public discourse https://www.npc.org.au/speaker/2023/1150-paul-keating Good on the @PressClubAust - we need deep critical debate and intellectual exploration of this particular piece of policy.
