Professional association and committee involvement
- Co-editor of the International Conference on Sustainable Automotive Technologies (ICSAT). The inaugural conference was held in 2008 in Melbourne. Due to the conference success, ICSAT now alternates annually between Australia, Germany and the United States. The conference proceedings have been adopted by Springer-Verlag for publication.
- Member of the International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED) and has acted on the International Review panel since assisting with the ICED’05 in Melbourne.
- Member of the Design Society
