Nine senior AUT academics have been appointed to the position of Professor, effective from 1 January 2021. Another 19 academics have been appointed as Associate Professors.
An engineer working in cardiovascular health; a language expert helping migrants and refugees get the best of our health services; and a researcher of education philosophy who has examined the links between science fiction and how we teach children at school are among those appointed.
“These leading academics produce research that matters in a broad range of areas and are vital to ensuring our students leave AUT as great graduates,” said Vice-Chancellor Derek McCormack.
“We congratulate our appointees and acknowledge their years of contribution to making AUT the University for the changing world.”
