Linda Hillbrick completed her undergraduate and PhD studies at Deakin University in chemistry and material science and has over 25 years’ experience in research and development, in the wool textile field and more recently in carbon fibre. Her current research focus spans the carbon fibre processing pipeline, from characterising the thermal properties of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) co-polymers, the wet spinning of PAN precursor fibre and characterising the mechanical properties of precursor and carbon fibre.

Linda has a track record of delivering project outcomes to industry partners and funding bodies and enjoys communicating with stakeholders and the science community. In 2016 Linda became a partner investigator for the ARC Research Hub for Future Fibres. Linda served on the CSIRO Manufacturing Consultative Catalyst Team (formally known as the junior leadership team) and was CSIRO Manufacturing’s in-business coach for the Opportunity to Delivery project planning program.
