Current positions held

Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, School of Mech., Medical & Process Engineering, QUT


Michael E. Cholette obtained his B.S. degree from the University of Michigan in 2007. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012, where his research focus was fault detection and diagnosis for complex systems, with applications in automotive systems and semiconductor manufacturing. He joined the CRC for Infrastructure and Engineering Asset Management (CIEAM) in Brisbane, Australia as a postdoctoral research fellow, focusing on reliability modelling and asset management. He joined QUT as a Lecturer in 2013 and became an Associate Professor in 2021.

Michael has broad experience in several engineering disciplines related to dynamic systems, reliability, and applied optimisation. His primary expertise lies in asset management, particularly in in reliability modelling, Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM), and maintenance optimisation. He has also contributed to a number of other fields, including condition monitoring, control, autonomous vehicles, and building optimisation.

His research has been supported by a variety of industrial and government bodies, such as Powerlink Queensland, Wilmar Sugar, Delta Electricity, the Australian Research Council, and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency. He also participates in several academic and professional societies, including co-chairing the Scientific Committee for the 2017 World Congress on Engineering Asset Management and as a member of the International Society of Engineering Asset Management.
