Professor Simon Ringer
Director, Core Research Facilities, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, FIEAust, FRSN, FTSE, The University of Sydney
Professor Simon Ringer is an engineer driving new research in atomic-scale materials design. He uses a materials science and engineering approach to learn how processes such as additive manufacturing can create special atomic structures in metals to deliver remarkable new properties. New ultra-strong lightweight alloys, materials with remarkable electrical conductivity or novel magnetic properties are his interest. Creating new materials via additive manufacturing is important for defence, aerospace, space, energy delivery systems as well as Australia’s traditional extractive industries.
He has worked in Sweden, Japan, the USA and Australia, holds patents in the design of materials, has published extensively and is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. Professor Ringer works as the University of Sydney’s Director of Core Research Facilities where he provides University-wide leadership of major research infrastructure strategy, planning and operations.
