Biography

John Bell is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) at UniSQ, starting in the role in August 2019, following 25 years at QUT as Assistant Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering from 2001-2011, and Head of the School of Chemistry, Physics and Mechanical Engineering from 2012-2019.

John has a long record of research across a number of areas, including nanotechnology and new materials development, and materials for energy efficiency, conversion and storage. John also has a strong record of research leadership, building the research capacity of the School of Chemistry, Physics and Mechanical Engineering at QUT over 8 years from 2012-2019. John’s current research interests are focussed on functional materials, mainly for energy storage and sustainability. At UniSQ, John has led the development of the iLAuNCH Trailblazer Hub, focussing on the development of Space Launch Technology, as well as leading the University’s involvement in the Recycling and Clean Energy Trailblazer Hub led by Deakin University. John is a Chief Investigator on the Australian Research Council Industry Transformation Research on for Safe and Reliable Energy Storage (SafeREnergy).

Over his career John has secured research funding of over A$25 million, and worked with many companies on collaborative research projects, including Dyesol (dye-sensitised solar cells), Ergon Energy (electricity network modelling and energy storage), and Zero Emissions Development (energy storage and electric vehicles). He has published over 250 journal papers.

John is a Fellow of Engineers Australia and is also a Director of the Australian Institute for Nuclear Science and Engineering and the Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation. Previously he was a Director of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, and the a Director of the Cooperative Research Centre for Integrated Engineering Asset Management and the Cooperative Research Centre for Railway Technologies.
