ISSNIP Governance 

Governance arrangements for the ARC Research Network on ISSNIP are designed to ensure that maximum value is derived from the extremely talented people and constrained resources we have available to us.  The overarching arrangement is summarised in Figure 2.

Executive Board

The Executive Board is chaired by Dr. D. Nandagopal, a renowned scientist with unmatched experience in this field who is presently the Deputy Chief Defence Scientist (Policy and Programs) in the Defence Science and Technology Organisation. 

The Board membership is well balanced by the presence of A/Professor M. Palaniswami (Research Network Convenor), Professor M. V. Srinivasan (ANU, Inaugural ARC Federation Fellow, 2006 Prime Minister’s Prize for Science winner) and Professor I. Petersen (ADFA-UNSW, UNSW Scientia Professor, former Executive Director of Mathematics, Information and Communication for the Australian Research Council). The Executive Board included Vice Admiral (Retired) David Shackleton, AO, as an independent advisor.


The Board is supported by the extremely hard working Convener and three effective Committees of highly industrious people.
