Simon has an interesting and diverse background with qualifications in
Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Environmental Engineering, Winemaking and
Viticulture. When he first moved to Australia it was to take a year off
to continue studying opera singing at the Queensland Conservatorium of
Music. At the end of that year Simon decided to return to science and
study for a PhD at the University of Queensland.
Having worked with algae and water for 16 years in the fields of
biotechnology and environmental engineering, Simon's skills and knowledge
in science, engineering, business and innovation give him a big picture
approach to his work. Simon works as a consultant (st-ti.com), and he is
currently working with several companies with cutting edge technologies
that produce microalgae for food and fuel. His role includes the design
and commissioning of systems to produce the high value microalgae in
various culture systems.
Simon has won innovation and invention awards, and has developed many
innovative systems that are used in microalgae culture today. He sees the
huge possibilities that algae offer to solve multiple problems in the
world today. Simon also works with wastewater companies to manage their
treatment plants to reduce the impact of toxic algae through the use of
the product Nualgi, with more info on that at nualgienviro.com.au.
Simon's interests lie in helping people and businesses that want to be
part of this amazing industry to reach their goals, to strive for what is
realistic and reach for the best outcomes.
