Interdisciplinary innovation

2015 marks the beginning of two interdisciplinary research programs that enable Monash PhD students to work alongside established researchers and in partnership with industry and government to help solve significant global problems.


Meeting of the minds

The Go8-C9 PhD Forum held in Sydney at the end of 2014 brought together over 30 doctoral students from top Australian and Chinese universities to exchange ideas related to the global challenges of ageing populations. Two Monash PhD students presented their projects and enjoyed a rich time of learning and networking.


Towards a smart energy future

Kawnish Kirtania completed his PhD studies in chemical engineering at Monash in 2014, and has gone on to work overseas as a senior research engineer focused on renewable transport fuel. Kawnish chose Monash for its research reputation and enjoyed access to world class facilities such as the Australian Synchrotron.
