Sports data science: Bayesian approaches for dynamic complex systems

With elite sports becoming more competitive, coaches, athletes and sports scientists are looking to use data to maximise training outcomes for greater competitive performance.Buoyed by the proliferation of new technologies including wearables and video analytics, data can now be collected at higher levels of precision and frequency across a broader range of categories than ever before. However, making sense of this “big data” to optimise training outcomes and competitive performance has emerged as a key challenge. …

Recreating porous geometries from micro CT scan data

The aim of this research is to determine the virtual morphology of a heterogeneous porous medium from a micro computed tomography (micro-CT) scanner dataset.We'll use the 3D imaging facilities at QUT's Institute of Future Environments (IFE) for data capture.

Providing legal evidence for non-accidental scald burn injury

Although most burn injuries are completely accidental in nature, they can also occur due to neglect or abuse. Burn clinicians are often required to ascertain if the patient history and the wound are consistent with accidental or non-accidental injury. If the case goes to court, the clinician will prepare a medico-legal report as evidence. We have previously conducted studies examining the depth of burn injury after different durations and temperatures of hot water. This data can be used to predict …

MyFootCare - designing technology with people with diabetic foot ulcers

Every day in Australia:50,000 people are suffering with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU)1,000 are in hospital because of a DFU12 will undergo an amputationfour people will die with a DFU.A key challenge to healing DFUs is effectively engaging people in their independent self-care away from the clinic. To date, self-care of people with DFU has been reported to be universally low. This project seeks to address the challenge of low adherence to self-care amongst patients with DFUs.The main innovation of …

Medical selfies and patient generated health data

Smartphones and wearable technologies provide exciting opportunities for patients and health professionals to transform healthcare.Patients can benefit from photos (“medical selfies”) taken on their smartphone to record a condition that they want to discuss with a health professional. Wearable devices allow patients to semi-automatically collect data about their physical activity, sleep, mood, diet, etc.This data can help patients to better understand a health concern, its underlying causes and the impact of treatments.Clinicians, on the other hand, can benefit from medical …

The cosmic star formation history measured from Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) data

The cosmic star formation history (SFH) describes how the rate of star formation in the universe has evolved. This has been measured with increasing precision in recent decades. Using highly sensitive radio detections, this cosmic star formation history can be determined to the highest level of precision yet.The Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) radio survey will measure up to 30 million radio sources in the coming few years. We estimate half of these will arise from star formations.Using the …

Measuring Higher Education Performance: A Global Comparisons using Network Data Envelopment Analysis

The research objective focuses on comparing the top 100 universities (according to the Times Higher Education) from 2010 to 2020. The objective of the project is fourfold. First, to derive appropriate research outputs per university. Second, employ a Network DEA approach to identify (in)efficiencies within the network. Third, to measure productivity change of universities using the Fare-Primont index. Fourth, to determine sources of (in)efficiencies and productivity.This project is both theoretical and applied. The applicant should possess strong mathematical and computational …
