Leading autism researcher, Professor Andrew Whitehouse from The University of Western Australia and Telethon Kids Institute, has today been named a finalist in the 3M Eureka Prize for Emerging Leader in Science.
Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (EMS) researchers in the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems, Dr Mehrdad Kimiaei and Dr Hongwei An, have won a Cooperative Research Centres Project (CRC-P) Grant, a first for the University of Western Australia (UWA) and the oil and gas industry.
Dr Kimiaei and Dr An’s project is about design and manufacturing of an inaugural Australian work-class ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for ultra-deep waters (up to 6000m). Their research investigates the structural integrity and forces on the ROV frame.
