Our speaker is Adi Paterson
Can you be both a Scientist and a Christian today?
Why should faith be a priority in 2021?
Adi was Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation) from 2009 to 2020. He graduated as a scientist but also completed a PhD in engineering at University of Cape Town. He was instrumental in fully operationally commissioning a new nuclear reactor at Lucas Heights, and a new purpose-built facility to produce nuclear isotopes for medical research and treatment. ANSTO secures supplies all of Australia’s reactor isotope needs as well as exports medical isotopes around the world. He secured the future of the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne with $520m funding for a decade from the Federal Government. In 2012 Adi was awarded the Professional Engineer of the Year Award (NSW) and in 2015 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of New South Wales.
Adi will also talk of Australia’s energy future and its challenges.
A bloke in our church has said ...
“Adi Paterson is a brilliant speaker. Every man in our Church needs to hear him! They will be hearing one of Australia’s best Scientists and they will be encouraged!!!”
