Dr Graham (Gus) Nathan
University of Adelaide
Graham is a leading researcher in the fields of turbulence, energy and combustion. His research has an emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas and NO2 emissions from industrial combustion systems. Gus is leader of the chief design team that jointly designed the combustion system for the Olympic Torch and the Olympic Stadium flame. The design required consideration of environmental issues, such as minimising greenhouse gases, and has resulted in a patent of which Gus is a co-inventor.
Gus was promoted to Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering.
