Biography

Dr Joosten has a blend of experience that includes both industry and academia and is currently a Senior Lecturer within the School of Engineering at Deakin University. A proven history of materials research, with joint publications alongside prominent researchers from: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), The Defence Science and Technology Group (DST-G), United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), University of Texas at Arlington (UTARI), University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI), the University of Miami, the Carbon Nexus and the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

 

Mathew has significant experience in the design and analysis of composite structures. Mathew has worked on engineering and research projects related to several aircraft including the Airbus A300, A340, Bombardier C-Series, COMAC C919 and the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II. This experience is leveraged to deliver engineering education with a real-world focus.

 

Mathew has led the continuous fibre composite (CFC) research group since 2020. The group has focusses on applied research that broadly falls into three sub-themes:

  • The development of design and analysis methods for composite structures,
  • 3D printed continuous fibre composites, and
  • Experimental characterisation.

Dr Joosten is available to supervise undergraduate and masters projects related to the research areas listed above.
