Roger Dunn: Assoc Prof Dept of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Uni of Auckland

Are We There Yet?

At the end of year dinner of the institution of transportation Engineers Australia and New Zealand branch in 2018. Roger Dunne was honoured for his contribution to the transport profession made over many years principally as an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Auckland and as a fellow and life member of the ITEDB: Prior to joining the University of Auckland in 1972 Roger worked for the New Zealand Ministry of Works and development in Palmerston North and Wellington and then Freeman Fox Wilbur Smith and Associates in London and Paris. DB: The link between academia business and government activities is critically important. So we thought we would have a chat to Roger on his reflections from an illustrious career. DB: Sir Roger have you spent your main part of your career in academia. RD: Yes I have and rather surprisingly because I spent about 10 years in the Ministry of Works and in New Zealand and then I went to England for three years I was consulting engineering over there and surprisingly someone offered me a job at the University of Auckland which I originally said no and then eventually accepted. But I've thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. DB: You started in engineering yet I think reading your CV you have seen a lot of broader career areas focused areas come in to the transport field. Would that be a fair reflection. RD: Oh yes yes. RD: I have always been interested in mathematics and the New South Wales master's degree which I did. It took me an interest in that area and then I became interested in planning. RD: Ross Blunden who is professor there and the other staff I said was a great program at New South Wales and really interested me and so I've been very thrilled to be able to be working in the area. DB: Ross Blunden was my professor. Yes. Way back there he was a wonderfully interesting guy. DB: We've now not only taken on the mathematical side of things but also some of the social sciences as well. Oh is that an important expansion. RD: I've always been interested in land use planning you know the arrangement of land use and transport and that was sparked I think by Ross Blunden and others that New South Wales. But I did a postgraduate diploma here which is more or less a master's degree in land use planning and I've got a lot of friends of mine and land use planning and I think that's an area where we're deficient in linking transport with land use. RD: I don't think we we realise the importance of it and the variety that over the last 40 or 50 years but I still don't think we take it into account with our planning and our transport.

Episode 54 - Roger Dunn

How you GYST

Hi everyone say what's up to Roger Dunn. I met Roger over 10 years ago when we were engineers working in a past life. Now though, he finds himself in the midst of med school in the pursuit of making sense of it all. A lot of this conversation wends and weaves its way through Roger's journey from what brought him from back then to now and the various lessons in between. I thought it was a pretty interesting ride. I learned a bunch and I know you will too.  Show Notes: - This episode's music interstitial is excerpted from : Porter Robinson and Madeon - Shelter.
