Dr. John Watt
Victoria University of Wellington
Dr. Watt completed his PhD in Chemistry in 2009 with the MacDiarmid Institute and subsequently was named the 2009 MacDiarmid Young Scientist of the Year for his research in removing toxic pollutants from vehicle emissions. John’s studies focus on using infinitesimally small nanoparticles of the precious metal palladium to remove toxic gases from a car’s exhaust system. After completing his PhD, Dr. Watt was headhunted to host the TVNZ7 series ‘Ever Wondered’ and still works as a researcher at Victoria University’s Nanoparticle and Quantum Dot Research Group.
