NTU GAVE ME THE POSSIBILITY TO ACCELERATE MY CAREER.

Dr Matthew Addicoat

Independent Research Fellow

I SEE POSSIBILITIES TO EFFICIENTLY USE CROPS AS RENEWABLE ENERGY.

NTU GAVE ME MY FIRST FULL-TIME POSITION AS AN INDEPENDENT RESEARCHER TWO YEARS AGO. 

I work in predictive computation, solving problems with supercomputers that can narrow down millions of possibilities to just a few. 

Tell us of a future you'd like to create and we'll give you the resources to make things happen.

I'M EXPLORING POSSIBILITIES FOR MEETING SOME OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST CHALLENGES FASTER THAN EVER BEFORE.

Possibilities like finding new materials to safely store and transport hydrogen as fuel. Possibilities to capture carbon emissions from our atmosphere and transform them to useful materials. Possibilities to efficiently use crops as renewable energy.

I LIKE GETTING TO THE SOLUTION FAST. I LIKE THE THRILL OF THE CHASE AND FINDING THE NEEDLE IN THE HAYSTACK. 

The kind of problems we're facing on this planet call for a real sense of urgency. Working at NTU gave me the possibility to move quickly in both my research and my career. 

I like solving things faster than anyone else can. And maybe that's no bad thing when I might just be helping to save the planet along the way.
