Mackley Asia tour

Prof Mackley inspecting a section of the worlds largest diameter polyethylene pipe extrusion at the Qenos polyethylene chemical plant Melbourne Australia where Kris Coventry, one of our ex PhD students, is now a plant manager.

Professor Mackley has completed an Asia lecture tour as part of his sabbatical leave.  He started at the National Chemical Laboratory, (NCL) Pune, India, where he was hosted by an ex-Department Post doctoral, Dr Ashish Lele.  He lectured at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay and attended a polymer processing conference held at Goa.  Next stop was the National University of Singapore (NUS) where Professor Neal Chung hosted his stay.  The beautiful city of Melbourne followed with lectures and meetings at Monash University, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and Melbourne University.  At Melbourne, Kris Coventry, an ex-Department PhD, showed Malcolm around a Qenos polyethylene manufacturing plant.  Finally Malcolm visited Hong Kong and Ping Gao, also an ex-Department PhD, hosted his stay at the University of Science and Technology, Clear Water Bay.  The level of science and optimism seen at all the venues was memorably high and a clear sign that significant future advances will come from this part of the world.
