McKay Interview: Covid 19 special - Bob Bishop (20 April 2020)
In this new COVID-19 series of McKay Interviews, Michael will be asking different experts their views on the pandemic and how it will develop - and ultimately defeated. This week, Michael is speaking to Bob Bishop. He has been on the show before. He is the Founder & President of the International Centre for Earth Simulation Foundation, ICES, and a former Chairman & CEO of Silicon Graphics, Inc., once a Fortune 500 company but now absorbed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Bob holds degrees in Mathematical Physics from the University of Adelaide and New York University, and is a Doctor of Science from the University of Queensland.
In 2006, he was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal for his role in building simulation facilities that helped NASA’s space shuttle fleet return-to-flight after the 2003 Columbia disaster.
