Event description

Description

The Centre for Transformative Innovation and the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering is holding a public lecture presented by Dr John O'Sullivan

Dr John O'Sullivan in the early 1990s led a team at CSIRO which developed a technique for reducing multipath interference of radio signals transmitted for computer networking and communications. This technology forms a key part of all recent Wi-Fi implementations.

Dr O'Sullivan in 2017 was awarded (with David Skellern) the IEEE Masaru Ibuka Consumer Electronics Award. In 2012, his team was awarded the European Inventor Award (international) along with being named a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering. In 2009 he was awarded the Prime Minister's Prize for Science.

Join us for the lecture followed by networking drinks at Swinburne University of Technology.
