  • Leading the development of innovative technologies for fabricating energy efficient electric machines, for a consortium of multinational manufacturers. Project was fast tracked and client realised other significant market opportunities for their products; with applications within the automotive industry, alone, estimated at billions of dollars annually.
  • Developing technologies for the processing of engineering ceramics and polymers, for a Chinese government agency. Produced innovative cutting solutions and increased production rates. The established models gained international acceptance, with great commercial relevance to the mining, oil and gas, medical devices, micro-machines, and defence industries.
  • Formulating and conducting training for professional engineers on advanced engineering. Significantly contributed to shaping the minds and thoughts of hundreds of engineers across various industries Australia-wide.
  • Innovating an ultra-precision machine, all the way from conceptual design to prototype realisation, for a government-sponsored project. Successfully developed a unique multi-scale system for nano to micro-scale machining and testing, costing only $300,000—an 85% saving on competing offers from Japan. Generated substantial patentable intellectual property, with huge potential for licensing and commercialisation royalties.
  • Pioneering a technology for damage-free surfacing of Silicon wafers, for the semi-conductor industry, while addressing environmental concerns about the use of harsh chemicals. A world-first in the development of damage-free and chemical-free polishing technology was achieved, with worldwide recognition.
  • Guiding a team of specialists, designing methods for early detection of defects, for a leading provider of ultra-high frequency communication devices, used by the US Air Force. The client adopted the testing methods as standard quality control procedures, which resulted in significant cost savings and product quality improvement.
  • Advancing human scientific knowledge: establishing a framework for atto-second pulsed-laser heating, for next-century atomic-scale fabrication. Established a world-first model for Relativistic Heat Conduction, which was published in the top international journal in the field.
  • Devising, developing, and implementing holistic methodologies for constructing Fuzzy Expert Systems, without relying on human experts for knowledge acquisition. The methodology successfully improved efficiencies for various systems, including forecasting of the financial markets. It is published in the top international journal in this field, and is highly cited.
  • Designing complex piping systems, for Caltex, used for transferring large volumes of oil, including high-temperature piping. The project was successfully completed, and my expertise saved over $1 million in total plant cost.
  • Developing original Piping and Instrumentation (P&ID) diagrams, conforming to project contracts and international standards. Produced more efficient designs of piping systems, saving an average of $13,000 a day.
