It’s been an exciting 3.5 years here at UTS, and CIC is about to move into a new phase, with some team changes, and new openings.
It’s always a delight to see my team move on to the next level, but of course I’m sorry to lose from the immediate team Simon Knight as he takes up a Lectureship in the new UTS Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation, and Andrew Gibson as he takes up a Lectureship at Queensland University of Technology. Congratulations to both of them on securing these posts, and they both know how grateful I am for their many contributions to our joint work. We will still be collaborating of course. . .
