The Science Show with Tiffany Walsh

11 May

In May 2013, Robyn Williams from Radio National's The Science Show interviewed veski innovation fellow Associate Professor Tiffany Walsh about her research in the area of materials science.

Nature has had millions of years for molecules and substances to be optimised for maximum effect. Be it hardness, stickiness, toughness or colour, nature has been working at it for a long time. Now materials scientists are combing the natural world for these chemicals to learn what allows them to perform as they do. The aim is to copy their techniques in the lab and create new materials for our use in manufacturing.

Listen to her interview.
