UC graduates set to join Fulbrighters from around the globe in virtual study after receiving 2020 award
University of Canterbury (UC) graduates Robbie Morrison and Milena Petrovic are two of 49 students, scholars, artists and professionals to be honoured tonight at the Fulbright New Zealand Awards, held at Parliament.
While studying towards his Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws with First Class Honours from UC, Morrison brought his unique legal perspective to a research paper recently published in Frontiers in Blockchain. The paper titled The DAO controversy: The case for a new species of corporate governance? explores the implications of the non-human led governance structure of The DAO, and the impact on the decentralised autonomous organisation following a ‘hack’ of its code.
Milena graduated from UC with a BA (Hons First Class) in International Relations and Diplomacy in 2016.
UC will also welcome Brown University graduate, Molly Magid who will research the genomics of the New Zealand Fairy Tern/tara-iti with her Fulbright Award. Magid graduated from Brown University in 2019 with a BA in Biology (Hons) and a BA in Science, Technology, and Society.
Penelope Borland, Executive Director of Fulbright New Zealand says, “We are delighted to be able to announce this year’s Fulbright grantees and to celebrate their achievements at the Fulbright Awards.”
