Join the Vice-Chancellor and Nobel Laureate Professor Brian P. Schmidt AC and fellow alumni and friends at the New York City Alumni Gala Dinner.
The Reimagine Investment!
This entertaining evening will feature ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science Dean, Professor Elanor Huntington, who is leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century.
The Reimagine investment is helping us think about what our world will be like in 2050, when we are completely embedded in both a digital and physical environment, and to encourage us to take charge and shape a new intellectual agenda. Join us for an opportunity to hear about this exciting initiative and to meet other alumni in New York City.
Professor Elanor Huntington
Professor Elanor Huntington is the first female Dean of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University. She is committed to reimagining Science and Technology for the future. In particular, Professor Huntington hopes to encourage young women to get involved in STEM related fields. Professor Huntington's research interest is in the area of experimental quantum optics, specialising in high-speed measurement, control and generation of non-classical states for quantum technological applications. Non-classical states are used as an input to a variety of quantum technologies and, as such, the ability to make, measure, and manipulate such states with high precision and at high speeds is crucial. Prof Huntington is the author of several research publications and patents in this area.Professor Huntington is also leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century - the Reimagine project.
