Exploring Nano 1: Mario Ioannidis

November 14, 2007

Last week, I interviewed Mario Ioannidis, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Director of the Nanotechnology Engineering Program at the University of Waterloo. We discussed the nanotechnology engineering program, Waterloo’s co-op program (the largest in the world), and why Waterloo is such a hub of high-tech in Canada. The interview was broadcast live onto Nanotechnology Island in Second Life, where the audience could ask questions in real time.
