School of Elect Engineering and Computer Science
The University of Newcastle, Australia
A/Prof. Kellett earned Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from the University of California Riverside in 1997, and the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
He subsequently held postdoctoral research positions at Ecole des Mines de Paris (France) in the Centre d'Automatique et Systemes, at the University of Melbourne (Australia) in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and at the Hamilton Institute (Ireland), based at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
A/Prof. Kellett joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Newcastle in 2006. He has taught a range of subjects across electrical, computer, and telecommunications engineering, while his research interests span control, power systems, communication, and information theory.
A/Prof. Kellett is currently supported by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship. He has been awarded the Vice-Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence in the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment (2011) and a Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany, 2012-2013). In 2013 he was one of eight Australian researchers selected for the Australia-Japan Emerging Research Leaders Exchange Program jointly sponsored by the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Engineering Academy of Japan, and the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science.
In 2012, jointly with co-authors Dr. B. Rueffer (U. Paderborn, Germany), A/Prof. P. Dower (U. Melbourne), and A/Prof. S. Weller (U. Newcastle), A/Prof. Kellett received the IET Control Theory and its Applications Premium Award for the best paper published in the journal in 2010-2011.
