Women in Science - Professor Rose Amal talks about Sustainable Fuels from the Sun

Rose Amal - Sustainable Fuels from the Sun

Rose Amal is a Chemical Engineer and a Scientia Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW. In this video, she talks about what motivates her to do research and her passion in securing sustainable energy. With a funding of $2.4 million over 5 years, she and her team will transform greenhouse gases (CO2) to produce liquid fuels using catalyst and energy from the sun.

Alumni Profile - Assoc Professor Cordelia Selomulya


Dr Cordelia Selomulya obtained her PhD degree in Chemical Engineering in 2002 under supervision of Professor Rose Amal and Prof David Waite. Following her PhD graduation, she embarked at RAE-Anglo Australian postdoctoral fellow to join the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering at the University of Leeds. She joined Monash University as Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering in 2006 and appointed Associate Professor in 2013. She is one of the 9 Monash researchers awarded the ARC Future Fellow in 2014.

Cordelia's research focus is on the study of functional (nano) materials, particularly in characterisation and functionalization of 'smart' materials for applications in diagnostic and therapeutics, food pharmaceuticals, national security and the environment. She has been involved as project leader in major industry grants such as the Dairy Innovation Australia and also has close collaboration with Fudan and Xiamen University, China.

She loves to travel and enjoys good food and great music.
