Additional Information

Dr. Will is a technology leader with 30+ years of experience in research, development, operations, and administration, in both academia and industry. He is the author or co-author of 24 articles in refereed technical journals and technical conferences, and multiple standards contributions. He was the invited key-note speaker at several conferences. He has significant expert witness experience in vehicle emissions defeat devices and defects across 6 continents. 100% of his non-pending cases resulted in a win or a very favourable settlement for his clients. In 2016 he prepared an analysis for a client’s defence to save multi-billions of dollars. In 2018, he was the lead expert witness in a case that resulted in a $120M settlement for his clients only 4 weeks after his report about the defendants’ report was handed down; His reports in another case resulted in a landmark judgement for clients worth up to $2B. A further client saved millions of dollars that otherwise would have been spent on a class action without merits. His deep technical expertise allows him to analyze defects, and products in detail, and explain clearly the main issues that the judge and jury need to internalize in order to comprehend the essence of the case. His extensive educational experience in academia allows him to help judges and jurors understand the topic they are dealing with. Dr. Will has invented, designed, built, and licenced automotive products such as heat management systems and engine software strategies that reduces emissions and fuel consumption. He has conducted extensive research in the reduction of emissions and improvement of vehicle efficiency, with applications to automotive control systems, and semi-active suspension systems. He is a Fellow of SAE-A, and a recipient of multiple international awards, and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Deakin University, Australia, an MBA from Henley Management College, UK, and the MSc equivalent from University of Siegen, Germany.
