Brief Summary

Dr Dong completed both the ME degree with First Class Honours and the PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Auckland, New Zealand before joining the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Curtin as a lecturer in July 2008. He was then promoted to Senior Lecturer in January 2012 due to his outstanding research and teaching performance.

His research interests include processing and material characterisation of polymer nanocomposites, object-oriented finite element (OOF) analysis based on mapping the real morphological structures, multiscale micromechanical modelling with representative volume element (RVE), polymeric process modelling, and statistical design of experiments (DoE).

His presented paper entitled “Characterisation and object-oriented finite element modelling of polypropylene/organoclay nanocomposites” was selected for the Best Paper Silver Award at the 5th Asian-Australasian Conference on Composite Materials (ACCM-5) held in Hong Kong in 2006. In 2007, he was also nominated for “MARQUIS Who’s Who in the World” and for MacDiarmid Young Scientists of the Year Awards, Foundation for Research Science and Technology (FRST), New Zealand. He serves as a selected reviewer for Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Letters, Journal of Materials Science and Engineering A, Journal of composite materials, Journal of Composites Part B, eXPRESS Polymer Letters, Chemical Engineering Journal, Journal of Applied Polymer Science, Journal of Materials Science. He is a Member of Editorial Boards for International Journal of Polymers and Technologies, Journal of Modern Applied Science and Journal of Applied Physics Research. To recognise his contribution in polymer nanocomposite area, he has also been appointed as a Member of Organising Committee for the Nineteenth International Symposium on Processing and Fabrication of Advanced Materials (PFAM XIX), Auckland, New Zealand, January 14-17, 2011. Roger was the sole editor for newly published technical book “Nanostructures: Properties, Production Methods and Applications” by Nova Science Publishers. He was the prize recipients for Highest RPI Points for Publication for an Early Career Researcher (ECR), November 2011, Pro Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence (Early Career), Curtin Faculty of Science and Engineering, December 2012, as well as Curtin Excellence and Innovation in Teaching Award for Teaching Excellence (Early Career), September 2013. He acted as a technical mentor for the Curtin BHP Billiton Award Winning team in Sustainable Design and Appropriate Technology Theme in 2009 Engineers Without Border (EWB) Challenges, Australia.
