Winthrop Professor John Dell

Dean of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, UWA

As Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, Prof. Dell has changed the profile of engineering education and research at the University of Western Australia, dramatically changing the education model and directing the research to be more industry focused and collaborative between disciplines. 

Prof. Dell has more than 300 refereed publications. His work has resulted in the awarding of a number of US and Australian defence contracts. He is also a co-inventor of a number of patented device structures and fabrication technologies. He is joint winner of the inaugural DSTO/Australia Museum Eureka Prize for Outstanding Science in Support of Defence or National Security.
