North Ryde. Wireless communication

The Science and Industry Endowment Fund together with Macquarie University has funded the chair in Wireless Communications with the aim of facilitating world leading research in wireless communications through collaboration between CSIRO and the University. The inaugural chair is Dr Stephen Hanly. Dr Hanly said the new Chair had its origins in highly successful collaborations between the CSIRO ICT Centre and the Electronic Engineering Department at Macquarie University in the area of wireless communications. Deputy vice-chancellor (research) at Macquarie University, Professor Jim Piper, said Dr Hanly's appointment would continue a strong tradition of innovation in wireless research at the university.
