SA Science Awards finalist

ITR alumnus Dr Reza Arablouei has been selected as a finalist in the 2014 South Australian Science Excellence Awards.

The signal processing expert was nominated in the category of PhD Research Excellence – Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering.

The nomination comes only two months after Reza was presented with the Ian Davey Prize – an award for the best thesis by a student at the University of South Australia.

After attending University in Tehran, Reza moved to Australia where he undertook a PhD at the Institute for Telecommunications Research at the University of South Australia.

The winner for PhD Research Excellence will be announced at the SA Science Excellence Awards dinner on August 8 at Adelaide Town Hall.

The South Australian government introduced the Science Excellence Awards in 2005 to recognise the efforts and achievements of outstanding scientists, many of whom are now world leaders in their respective fields.
