Speaker Profile

Associate Professor Jonathan Binns has a PhD from the University of Tasmania. He is the Director of ARC Research Training Centre for Naval Design and Manufacturing and the Deputy and Associate Dean of the College of Sciences and Engineering, University of Tasmania.

Creating vessels that are optimised to perform in the water is the focus of Associate Professor Jonathan Binns' research. The application of his skills in applied hydrodynamics is broad. He has designed yachts for the America's Cup, built sailing simulators for rehabilitation centres, and custom wave pools that consistently produce the perfect surfing wave. He is now turning his skills to solving problems for the naval defence industry.

Associate Professor Binns coordinated the development and is Director, of the ARC Research Training Centre for Naval Design and Manufacturing. The Centre is training PhD students to address issues specific to naval defence, which is a multi billion-dollar industry.

The facilities at the Australian Maritime College, combined with the critical mass of researchers and the incredible links with industry, make the University of Tasmania the ideal place to conduct research in this field. "We are one of the most industry-engaged unis in the world. With our collaborators in Australia and around the world, we can solve problems".
