Faculty

Principal investigators (PIs) of ARC projects are faculty members from ARC partner universities. They are experts and leaders in their fields. Together with their research teams of students, post-doctoral fellows, government and industry contributors, and collaborators, they are the force behind the cutting-edge research that is the bedrock of the ARC. The list of PIs and Co-PIs changes as projects start and conclude. Current PIs and Co-PIs are listed below in alphabetic order.
