Supervisory team

Meet our supervisors

Finding the right person to guide you through your postgraduate studies is important. Your supervisor will meet with you regularly, to guide your planning as your progress towards your research goals.  Our research supervisors have multi-disciplinary experience, are collaborative and lead world-class, impactful research.

Our team are in high demand with research institutes, government and industry and work on a diversity of projects from the prevention of injury to vulnerable road users, to the design and analysis of human-machine interfaces for connected and automated vehicles.

Study with CARRS-Q and you will join a supportive environment that attracts and retains high-quality supervisors and students, and fosters a dynamic and motivating research environment.
