Francis Petersen calls in


Our old friend Prof. Francis Petersen (pictured left with Cyril O'Connor) called in at the conference this morning. I first met Francis when he was at the Cape Technikon; he then became executive vice president at Mintek before moving on to Anglo Platinum as executive head- strategy.

In April 2008 he took over from Cyril O'Connor as Dean of Engineering and the built environment.

He has many fascinating interdisciplinary projects in the pipeline, which will be highlighted soon in the MEI Online news section.
