UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Today I share the news that Professor Phil Dolan and Professor Krishna Sen have chosen to leave the University to pursue new opportunities. I am sure you will join me in thanking Phil and Krishna for their exceptional leadership and wishing them all the very best for the future. You can read more about Phil and Krishna's time at UWA here.

I have previously spoken about the challenges facing UWA due the changing nature of the higher education sector. On Friday I hosted a roundtable of business leaders to hear their views on some of the State's key issues including what skills will be required in the future workforce. As a University we are committed to preparing our students for the jobs of tomorrow and continued industry engagement will play an important role in this.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

Forward Focus

Speedy scientist a local legend

It's been a long time since a local runner won back-to-back City to Surfs (12k distance), but last month UWA's own Dr Roberto Busi achieved this feat.

Roberto Busi

Running is a hobby that fits in with my research career and my personality. It's my destresser and has helped my work a lot over the years.

A Research Fellow in the School of Plant Biology, Dr Busi moved to Perth from Italy in 2005 on a six-month Endeavour Award Scholarship, and over ten years later is still here researching and running.

Read more about Roberto's running triumphs.
