Centre graduate and postdoctoral fellow Dr Amirali Popat has been awarded a 2012  Australian Nanotechnology Network (ANN) Young Nanoscience Ambassador award.

The ANN awards are given to small number of students per year, and applicants are chosen on scientific merit, community engagement and education. The program aims to encourage talented young scientists and engineers who are engaged in research and development to promote science and science education. 

ANN awardees play a vital role in helping to create an interest in science and technology to students in rural, remote and indigenous schools, particularly in northern Queensland. The program is aimed at building passion and enthusiasm for science and technology in Queensland’s young people, and inspiring and developing the love of science.

Amirali plans to vist four Queensland State High Schools in 2013, including schools in Prosperpine, Morayfield, Bundaberg and Toowoomba.
