Dr. Nataatmadja is a Senior Lecturer in Pavement and Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Southern Queensland. Prior to joining USQ, he worked as the Supervising Pavement Engineer (Design & Analysis) of Roads and Maritime Services (RMS-NSW) in Parramatta. For more than 25 years Andreas has been working in the broad area of civil engineering, which includes teaching, quality control and testing, civil design and construction, and investigation activities. He has published many technical and applied/practical papers in pavement geotechnology and construction materials. With his extensive and wide ranging experience, Andreas has been in regular contact with the construction industry such as Australian Asphalt Pavement Association, Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia and Australian Society for Concrete Pavements; and also with many Australian and overseas universities as well as design consultants and contractors in Australia.
