Chris Cook is an electrical engineer with a BSc and BE from the University of Adelaide, and he received his PhD from the University of New South Wales in 1976. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineers Australia and a Chartered Engineer.

After graduation he worked for Marconi Avionics in the UK as a project engineer designing aerospace computing systems, and later with GEC Australia as the Technical Manager of their Automation and Control Division, where he set up a group which designed and installed robot controlled automation systems for manufacturing applications. He then became the founding Managing Director of the Automation and Engineering Applications Centre Ltd., a non-profit company of the University of Wollongong, which built and installed automation and robotic systems for manufacturing companies around Australia.

He became Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Wollongong in 1989 and was Head of School for 12 years before taking up the position as Dean of Engineering (11 years) and then Executive Dean of Engineering and Information Sciences (2 years). His research interests include the application of power engineering and real-time control theory to improve the precision of machines and robots, to improve control over high currents for arc welding, and to the development of new electrical engineering applications of high temperature superconductors. He currently holds a number of ARC grants, and has had extensive involvement with several CRC's for over 20 years in positions ranging from chief investigator, project and program manager, membership of research committees, CRC selection committees for CEO’s, as a Director on CRC Boards, and as a member of a CRC Audit and Risk Management Committee.
