Dr Matthew Doolan

UNSW Canberra
School of Eng & Tech

Matthew Doolan completed his PhD in process control at Ford Australia's Stamping Operations Facility. He has worked for the Mount Stromlo Observatory on the world's largest telescopes, the Gemini telescopes, and as an academic in the School of Engineering at Australian National University. He has led many manufacturing industry research projects cover the gamut from process and dimensional control with Ford Australia, to supply chain management with Toll Auto Logistics and Futuris, to vehicle recycling with the AutoCRC. He also led the highly acclaimed industry technology roadmapping projects, Automotive Australia 2020 and On Track to 2040. Matthew has also be involved in a range of different commerical activities including work with ANU Enterprise and ANU Connect Ventures.

Since at UNSW Canberra matthew continues involvement in the ARC Training centre of Lightwieght Autmotive Structures (ATLAS). He also continues to work with a range of industry partners on manufacturing projects in the areas of process monitoiring and control, recycling and lifecycle assessment.
