The Australian National Fabrication Facility’s (ANFF) Dr Johnson Chung from the Materials Node has been awarded a 2022 Frater Award, presented at last month’s ANFF Gala Dinner held at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
The annual awards are presented to ANFF staff members to enable career development by fostering technical and professional growth through national or international activities. Dr Chung, based at the University of Wollongong’s (UOW) Materials Node, was amongst nine other award winners from the ANFF network across the country to receive an award.
“In research, it is not often where you are given the support and opportunity in professional skills and development,” said Dr Chung.
“Through this award, I can afford to attend courses and seek education that would otherwise not be possible.”
The awards are named after Dr Robert Frater AO, ANFF’s first chairman and an active supporter of the development of researchers throughout his career in the field of advanced microelectronics. Dr Frater was also Deputy CEO of CSIRO.
Dr Chung joins previous winners from the ANFF Materials Node, Benjamin Filippi and Dr Sepidar Sayyar, who both received a Frater Award last year.
