Biographical details

Professor Andy Dong's research addresses the central activity of engineering: the design of new products and services. He joined the University of Sydney in 2003 after completing his PhD and postdoctoral training in mechanical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. He started in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning as a Lecturer and eventually became the Head of Discipline for the Design Lab. In 2010, he was awarded an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship. He was appointed the Warren Centre Chair for Engineering Innovation in 2012 and joined the Faculty of Engineering & Information Technologies. He is on the Editorial Board of the key journals in design research including Design Studies, Journal of Engineering Design, and Research in Engineering Design.

Research interests

Many companies encourage innovation among their employees, but often the result is a large number of good ideas, all of which may look equally attractive but all of which are also risky and uncertain. Professor Andy Dong's research into design-led innovation aims to help companies strategically choose which projects to invest in by accurately forecasting the potential costs and benefits each one would involve.

"In order to maintain our high quality of life and to achieve our overarching goal of a good society, we must continue to innovate. While the challenges to innovation are many, I focus on two aspects: getting the idea up, and getting it over the line.

"The first aspect involves the creative design of new goods and services, or design-led innovation. Good design is essential to the success of new products and services, and my research investigates the principles of good design in order to enhance the innovation capability of individuals and organisations.

"The second aspect acknowledges the fact that generating ideas for new goods and services is just the start - companies must then invest human and financial resources into the development of the idea. The problem is that companies neither want to invest money in an idea that will eventually lead nowhere nor inadvertently reject an idea that could have been a huge success. As one executive put it to me, the problem is not identifying innovation opportunities - it's figuring out which opportunity to pursue.

"My research involves developing models that can assist companies in forecasting the costs of implementing a particular technological innovation and the potential rates of improvement given no historical data - thus vastly improving their capacity to strategically exploit technological evolution given their finite resources.

"What drives me is the prospect of seeing good ideas come to fruition.

"My position at the University of Sydney is sponsored by the Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering, whose extensive network of leading Australian companies provides essential support for my research and for the dissemination of its outcomes."
