I am working on an ANDS Seeding the Commons project along with a team of staff at ECU. One of the exciting aspects of this project is actually going out and interviewing our university researchers, asking them about their research and their research data. Recently we spoke with Professor Kamal Alameh, the director of the Electron Science Research Institute (ESRI), about ECU's research in photonics and microelectronics. Professor Alameh was incredibly hospitable and took us on a tour around the ESRI research facility and explained in layman's terms their diverse and exciting projects. We will be contributing metadata about an ESRI dataset into Research Data Australia.
This Youtube video shows Professor Alameh talking about ESRI and was released in the ECU YouTube Channel this week.
