AAA Award in New York

It was wonderful to receive my Harvard Postdoctoral Fellowship award at the American Australian Association Benefit Dinner. Over 600 people gathered at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York, raising $1,679,300 for the Education Fund. I got to hang-out with lots of clever and interesting people, including former Premier Peter Beattie and Ambassador Kim Beazley.

The Association holds the annual Benefit Dinner to recognize important American-Australian business relations and to celebrate the scholars of its Education Fund. To date, more than 200 Fellows have received awards totalling over US$5.5 million to pursue advanced studies in critical fields such as medical research and sustainability at top institutions including Harvard, Princeton and MIT.
