Simon Poole, Chair of our Industry Advisory Board was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Sciences this week. https://www.science.org.au/fellowship
The fellowship recognises his research and entrepreneurial achievements. As a researcher he was part of the team which developed the Erbium-Doped Fibre Amplifier (EDFA), which is now a ubiquitous part of the optical fibre networks that underpin the global internet. Simon has also led the establishment of an export-competitive photonics industry in Australia, having founded manufacturing companies in Australia that have generated high-value-add export revenues. His experience at the interface between research and industry is widely recognised and we are very lucky to have him leading our Industry Advisory Board.
