Dr Warren King addressed graduates from the Faculty of Engineering at the Great Hall, City campus, University of Technology, Sydney on Wednesday 9 May 2007, 2.30pm.
Dr King is currently the Chief Technology Officer for Cap-XX, an Australian company manufacturing supercapacitors for portable electronic devices.
Prior to this, and for most of his research career, he was at CSIRO. Until recently, he was the CSIRO Group Executive for IT, Manufacturing, and Services. In this role he oversaw the operations of seven CSIRO Divisions and 2000 staff in the physical sciences. Prior to that he was Chief of the CSIRO Division of Telecommunications and Industrial Physics.
In 1999 he was seconded to the Federal Department of Industry Science and Resources as head of the Division of Innovation and Science.
His research interests have always been very wide and of an applied nature, covering such fields as cloud physics and microelectronics. His latest paper is on the physics of making coffee, so although he is a physicist by training, he likes to think of himself as an honorary engineer.
