Biography summary

Bernard Rolfe completed a combined Economics and Engineering degree with honours in 1995 from the Australian National University (ANU). During his degree he was employed as a graduate research engineer at the BHP Research Labs, investigating better control systems for hot strip steel mills. After he obtained his degree he worked for several years as a Business Systems consultant with Andersen Consulting (Accenture) before starting a PhD at the ANU. He completed his doctorate in 2002 researching novel methods for inverse modeling metal forming processes. This research included an IMechE award winning journal paper. Currently, he is an Associate Professor (equivalent of a tenured Professor in the US system) at Deakin University in Australia. He has been a part of over twelve successful competitive large research grants, totalling over AUD $9 million in awarded funds. He has published over 100 refereed articles. His current research focus is the forming of light weight structures, including the development of better material models for metal forming.  In 2008 Bernard led the Deakin’s successful project team for “Creating the Model-T for the 21st Century – a Global University Challenge”.  Currently, he is the theme leader for the Automotive Technology Cooperative Research Centre’s lightweighting program ($15M worth of projects).
