Michael Evan Goodsite B.Sc.C.E., M.Sc.Env.E., MBA, Ph.D. FIUPAC, MAUSIMM, MAICD, is a civil- and environmental engineering full professor and Head of School for Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME) he is concurrently the Interim Director of The INSTITUTE FOR MINERAL AND ENERGY RESOURCES (IMER) he also is the Director of Commercialisation at the University of Adelaide Faculty of ECMS where he conceived and oversees the ECMS commercial 'Launchpad'. He formerly was Head (ad interim) of the Australian School of Petroleum (ASP). Professor Goodsite has public and private leadership experience. The elected Regional Council of Southern Denmark appointed him as the Region of Southern Denmark’s Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for Regional Development. A portfolio that included Regional business development, environment and natural resources. An experienced Board member: he currently is appointed by the Danish Minister of Energy to the Board of the Danish National Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP) as well as other associations and businesses. His international university service includes Special Advisor to the Peking University Centre for Natural Resource Economics, China; Adjunct Professor to the University of Iceland and Honorary Senior Research Fellow to the Institute for Security and Development Policy (ISDP) in Stockholm, Sweden. His research interests: climate adaptation, green building and planning and as a fmr. military officer and Director of the US Army Cyber Counterintelligence Activity he researches operational efficiency/“green defense”. He is chair of the ECMS In Situ Resource Utilisation (ISRU) initiative, which evolved into a UofA Centre for Sustainable Planetary and Space Resources (CSPSR), where he leads the mineral extractive module. Professor Goodsite is an expert evaluator/assessor for national and international research programs.
