“I was delighted to have the opportunity to attend and present at the IAEA technical meeting and am grateful to the Australian Government for nominating me. It was an honour to share my expertise and exchange ideas in an international arena as well as gain insight into the current challenges impacting on IAEA and the world,” he said.
