American Australian Association Global Leadership Symposium


Dr. Doig attended the American Australian Association’s Global Leadership Summit in New York City this week - the 2 day workshop and networking event was designed to bring together past and present Scholars (Dr. Doig was a recipient of a Qantas scholarship back in 2011 - supporting postdoctoral research in the US on shockwave/fire interaction) to discuss interdisciplinary approaches to solving some of the world’s biggest problems. And to drink some Coopers, 34 stories above Lexington Ave. As a very Australian random bonus event, some of the scholar’s ran into former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd outside a store, making him almost as accessible as New Zealand’s former Prime Minister. Dr. Doig also managed to get in a trip to the new Cornell-Tech campus on freezing Roosevelt Island, to get some ideas for Cal Poly’s Entrepreneurship programs.
