Professor Alan Crosky is a professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at UNSW. His research interests include sustainable composite materials, reducing embodied energy of synthetic fibre reinforced plastic composites and biochar for soil beneficiation and carbon sequestration. Alan's research has focused on the effect of structure (both micro and macro) on mechanical behaviour. Specific areas of research include directed fibre placement in fibre reinforced plastic composites, natural fibre composites, wood plastic composites, agro biochar, ageing behaviour in aluminium alloys and failure analysis. Recognition of this includes more than 100 papers in international journals and conferences; $2.3m research funding since 2003; six PhD/ME completions since 2003; and Program Leader, CRC for Advanced Composite Structures.

Dr. Kazuo Umemura is a full professor of Tokyo University
of Science. His specialty is biophysics, especially, nanobioscience and
nanobiotechnology. One of his recent interests is nanoscopic research of
hybrids of biomolecules and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Unique structures and
physical/chemical properties of the hybrids are promising in biological
applications such as nanobiosensors and drug delivery.
Dr. Umemura received his B.S. degree in Physics from Nagoya University. His M.S. and Ph.D. degrees were given from Tokyo Institute of Technology. After working at several institutes/universities as a researcher in Japan and in China, he became a professor of Tokyo University of Science. Kagurazaka campus of Tokyo University of Science is located at the center of Tokyo, so five subway/railway lines reach in front of the campus.
