Research Overview


  • Surfing as a Science!

    I am the Professor of Materials Science and Surf Engineering and a national and international recognized expert in development of new materials (e.g. hydrogels), Additive Manufacturing (e.g. 3D / 4D printing) and surf engineering (e.g. design, testing and benchmarking surfing equipment such as fins and surfboards).

    My research is regularly featured in the media and I am actively driving knowledge exchange and research translation.

    I have a demonstrated track record in providing leadership, change management, supervising, and mentoring of post-graduate students, early-career researchers, and academic staff as part of my roles as a Professor, University Mentor, Associate Dean, Deputy Executive Dean and Interim Executive Dean.

Impact Story


  • Engagement with media and working with industry
  • Our work on edible electronics resulted in a lot of media exposure for research at the University of Wollongong
  • <p>Lab Notes is a podcast series celebrating Australian science, innovation and entrepreneurship. <br /><br />It is hosted by Prof Marc in het Panhuis (School of Chemistry and Molecular Bioscience) and UOW Alumnus Dr Leo Stevens. <br /><br /></p>
  • We demonstrated the potential of 4D printing and showcased UOW research to the wider community
  • The Surf Flex Lab is a dedicated facility for testing of surfboards and fins at the University of Wollongong.

Available as Research Supervisor
