Interactive art

This suggested practice-based research project seeks, overall, to ask how interactive art engages audiences, how it is created and, depending on the applicant's interest and expertise, how it might be a collaborative effort between artist and technologist.ituated within the nascent area of interactive art, contributing new understandings and research into the form and design of interactive art works; and new insights into audience experience of interactive art.The project can engage with themes and theories in its exploration of interactive art …

Hierarchical visualisation of large social networks

Networks have been extensively used to capture social interactions, by representing individuals as nodes and their relationships as edges.Such networks have been used to model the spread of epidemics. A few nodes are 'infected', and over time they gradually infect their neighbours on the network, who in turn infect their neighbours, etc. This type of model can then be used to simulate different intervention strategies aimed at containing outbreaks.However, an important limitation is the difficulty to visualise these networks when …

Visualisation of CRISPR targets

CRISPR-Cas9 technology allows us to modify virtually any gene in any organism of interest. It has generated a lot of interest, both in the research community and the general population.One of the crucial components of CRISPR experiments is the design of the 'guide RNAs' that will control where modifications occur.We have developed a software pipeline, named Crackling, to identify safe and effective guide RNAs across entire genomes. We're now seeking to develop a visualisation to communicate the results produced by …

Modelling and visualisation of Bayesian additive regression trees

Bayesian additive regression trees (BART) are semiparametric models often used in machine learning tasks and causal inference. Currently there is a huge interest in using these models for statistical inference and prediction.The tidytreatment R package is designed to facilitate using BARTs from several different R packages in a consistent format. The package contains tools to visualise and investigate these BARTs to assist practitioners in developing reproducible analyses that can interface with other "tidy" packages (e.g. tidyverse packages and tidybayes).Tidytreatment aims …

Presenting the Australian Cancer Atlas using different geographic structures

The Australian Cancer Atlas (ACA) is an award-winning and globally recognised tool for understanding the spatial variation in cancer incidence and survival across Australia. For statistical rigour, the ACA currently presents estimates of relative risk by “SA2”, an area structure defined by the Australian Bureau of Statistics that groups together similar subpopulations. However, many health organisations use different areal structures, such as Primary Health Networks (PHN) or electoral boundaries.The goal of this project will be to develop methods for summarising …

Praeclarus process-data quality framework

Praeclarus is an open-source software framework that aims to facilitate data pre-processing for process mining. Process mining is specialised data mining focusing on process-data. It is of high interest to industry, with the market doubling every two years (e.g., increasing from $550M in 2020 to $1B in 2022). This market increase has meant that big companies like Microsoft, SAP, and IBM are acquiring process mining vendors such is Minit, Signavio, and myInvenio.Recent process mining surveys show that more than 60% …

Visualisation and sonification for genomic data sets

Successive revolutions in sequencing technology over the past two decades have led to an explosion in the availability of genomic data. Analysing biological datasets and identifying relationships within them is challenging - some of the process can be automated but interactive exploration offers a number of advantages, and supports serendipitous discovery.This project looks at visual analytics and sonification - the use of sound and musical encodings - to enhance our understanding of biological networks.

Can global geoengineering save the world's coral reefs?

At present, current actions and pledges by the world’s governments to limit greenhouse gas emissions are not sufficient to prevent dangerous changes in the climate system. These changes are projected to drive the destruction of almost all of the world's coral reef ecosystems.In response, global climate intervention strategies - such as stratospheric aerosol injection or marine cloud brightening - have been proposed to mitigate and delay the negative effects of climate change while efforts continue to reduce emissions. Yet, there …

Investigating the utility of hex maps to communicate information for the Australian Cancer Atlas

The Australian Cancer Atlas (ACA) is an award-winning and globally recognised tool for understanding the spatial variation in cancer incidence and survival across Australia. Currently in the ACA, the areas where the majority of the Australian population live (ie areas in cities), are not immediately visible in the Atlas. The goal of this project is to develop hex visualisations of the ACA estimates.

Participatory Visualisation of Smart City Data

This PhD project will be affiliated with FrontierSI and Value Australia and contribute to its goals and objectives around smart cities, digital twins, and automated land valuations. Although consumers contribute much of the data upon which these smart city technologies operate, its systems often remain opaque black boxes closed off to public understanding, scrutiny and control. There are also serious concerns around privacy and loss of autonomy.This PhD project addresses these issues by exploring new methods for the participatory visualisation …

Indoor sensors to measure and visualise environmental data

We have an ongoing project that investigates how people change their work environment to suit their comfort needs. We have existing electronic devices that we want to optimise for better correlation and visualisation of the indoor climate measurements (lighting, thermal, air quality, occupancy). This would contribute to devices that are better integrated and more responsive to the demands of occupants.
