PhDs in Industry: Geremy Farr-Wharton

Geremy Farr-Wharton did a PhD because he wanted to change the world by solving real problems.

He says his role as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the CSIRO enables him to do just that: use the research skills developed through his PhD to create life-changing solutions to real-world problems.

“I made the choice to pursue impact and I do a lot of really exciting things at CSIRO. I’m lucky enough to work with amazing colleagues on some really life-changing projects, from (re)designing our Australian cities for the coming future, to shaping the role of technology in healthcare, liveability and well-being. I even get to play a role in reshaping the futures of young Australians through artificial intelligence and machine learning. I get to work closely with industry, with different levels of government, and with tech start-ups to drive solutions for a better future.”
