Event description

Description

On 1 November 2018, twenty new Fellows and three Honorary Fellows were elected to the Academy of Royal Society Te Apārangi for their distinction in research and/or advancement of science, technology or the humanities.

These New Zealanders are experts in topics that include, in the humanities, global justice and migration, public economics, sociocultural theory, intellectual property and constitutional law. In the sciences, topics include enzymes, ultrafast lasers, reproductive and eye health, genetic diseases, medical modelling and sensors, pest control, ecological networks and earthquakes.

100 years on since the first twenty Fellows were inducted in 1919, this cohort of researchers and scholars will be inducted as part of our Academy Centenary.

Being elected a Fellow of Royal Society Te Apārangi is an honour that recognises true international distinction in research, scholarship and the advancement of knowledge. Fellows can use the post-nominal ‘FRSNZ’ after their name to indicate this honour.

Following Academy tradition, new Fellows present a short seminar on their work as a means of introducing themselves.

Join us for these presentations to both celebrate and discover more about the acheivements of these notable New Zealanders.
