People

The NSSN is led by two internationally recognised scientists who are leaders in their respective fields of physics and chemistry and bring a wealth of expertise to the network's ambitious program of research, innovation and industry collaboration.

The NSSN Board, chaired by Dr Susan Pond AM, and consisting of experienced leaders across the policy, research and industry spectrum provide guidance and oversight on network strategy and direction.

The NSSN Members' Committee consists of senior representatives of each of the member universities and the NSW Office of Chief Scientist & Engineer. It ensures that member university and government imperatives guide the strategy and activities of the network. 

A lean central team of talented staff lead the research programs and co-ordinate the operations of the network.
