Brad Dunstan, 58, Melbourne, Australia, passed away last week. Dunstan’s career in the automotive industry spanned almost 40 years. He was a leader in developing Australia’s high-tech automotive components sector. He set up the Victorian Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing (VCAMM) and played an instrumental role in establishing the Carbon Nexus carbon-fiber research facility at Deakin University, where he was director. He was an advocate for carbon fiber, well-known in the industry and will be greatly missed.
