Quotes

"To be a KuDos finalist feels like recognition of a lifetime of technical work at the highest level in science," says Dudley. "Working in this field has given me great satisfaction not just in progressing my own career goals, but helping the technical staff progress in their careers as well." Dudley has supported research in Antarctica on a number of occasions and is cited as an author on three publications from this work
"The proposed national partnership, coupled with a high performing, integrated research agenda, will deliver fit-for-purpose, socially acceptable, cost-effective and well-tested solutions to address national priorities in both natural and production ecosystems."
"Some great gains have been made but looking forward now it’s really about where is it we want to head and what are the big issues, have we struck a comfortable balance in terms of catering for all the needs of our people, have we just had a bit of a focus only on economic development maybe to the expense of social development. So it’s those big questions that are in the backs of people’s minds as we look forward forward to the future" he says
"But future developments are unlikely without changes – and a world-leading team has been destroyed."
