Supervisor Name:Ali Hadigheh
Location (City/Campus):Sydney
Project Description:"Until now, it has been impossible to continuously recycle products made of carbon fibres. Given that most recycling involves shredding, cutting or grinding, fibres are worn out, decreasing a future product’s viability. This presents a huge challenge and threat to our environment, as it has led to the production of virgin carbon fibre which contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. To combat this issue and to support a true circular economy, we developed an efficient and cost-effective method for recycling carbon fibre, which is present in tablets through to BMWs. To support a true circular economy, we developed an efficient and cost-effective method for recycling carbon fibre, which is present in tablets through to BMWs. To do this we used a two phased, optimised process. The first step is called “pyrolysis”, which breaks down a material using heat, but significantly chars the materials which prevents it from developing a good bond with a resin matrix. The second process, oxidation, uses high temperatures to remove this char. What makes our method so successful is that we have added specific parameters – such as temperature, heating rate, atmosphere or time spent being oxidised and heated – that preserve the functionality of carbon fibre."

Supervisor Name:Wei Li
Location (City/Campus):Sydney
Project Description:"The IoT is a way of bringing the digital world and the physical world together. In the past there was always a divide between the two, since field data were not integrated into the information system. With the IoT, data are integrated in real time - connected objects are immediately linked, in a ready-to-use state, to the information system - which offers a host of new opportunities for all of us, especially in terms of creating new services. Energy management strategies are important for the sustainable development of the IoT. Unlike energy management in traditional networks, IoT energy management faces serious challenges as a result of the IoT features of ubiquitous sensing, networking and computing. Thus, extra technical issues must be addressed for effective IoT energy management, and this is one of my areas of research. Sustainably lowering the carbon footprint of edge computing systems requires not only reducing power consumption but also using renewable energy as the primary power supply. The ultimate and most ambitious goal of my research is to contribute to a technological solution that will help build a smarter, greener and more sustainable planet, where each useful piece of information that surrounds us can be sampled, collected and analysed to provide efficient monitoring and control of intelligent spaces and management of urban and rural environments, thus mitigating modern problems relating to energy, security, transport and public health."

Grundlegendes zum Schwerpunkt Ingenieurswissenschaften, Informationstechnologie und Computer Sciences

Forschung in den Ingenieurwissenschaften, Informationstechnologie und Computerwissenschaften ist in Australien wie in Deutschland sehr anwendungsorientiert. Forschungsprojekte in diesen Bereichen werden stark von wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen bestimmt und gefördert. In den „Australian Research Priorities“ sind sie mit Themenbereichen wie manufacturing, health technology, transportation, energy oder cyber security mehrfach vertreten. Durch inter- und transdisziplinäre Forschungszusammenarbeit mit nationalen und internationalen Partnern werden starke Allianzen geschaffen, um komplexe gesellschaftliche Probleme und Herausforderungen zu lösen.
