Investigate, design and develop a trusted data sharing and decision making platform for enterprise applications

Blockchain technology relies on a consensus protocol to agree on the state of the system through data. Existing consensus algorithms rely on pre-defined rules, which are used to verify whether the data is obeying all the rules. This model of consensus may be suitable for broad classes of distributed and multi-stakeholder applications. Still, it does not cover applications that require consensus among human operators in the enterprise setting. This project investigates the possibility of achieving consensus through lightweight mechanisms.

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 …

Modelling of 3D printable flexible sensor designs for healthcare applications

Each year, millions of people suffer from traumatic tissue damage due to cancers, congenital defects or injury. Biofabrication is the rapid 3D printing of replacement tissue and organs that are customised to the specific needs of the patient. This future of manufacturing technology is set to revolutionise regenerative medicine and deliver high quality health outcomes. The Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology group is a world class multi-disciplinary research team focused on embedding biofabrication into routine clinical use.Based at our state-of-the-art labs …

Optimising sampling design for model discrimination of coral reef recovery

Natural disturbances including severe storms and bleaching events have devastating impacts on the Great Barrier Reef's health. Unfortunately, the increasing pressures associated with climate change are causing these disturbances to occur more frequently, for a longer duration and with more intensity.It's essential to understand the recovery dynamics between major disturbances so we can manage the health of the Great Barrier Reef under increased environmental pressures. Many studies modelling reef recovery assume a specific form for the growth dynamics. However, the …

The legal profession and design thinking

The rise of legal technology and the rapidly changing legal landscape continue to disrupt the way the legal profession is regulated.Regulation of the Australian legal system strictly limits the provision of legal advice to those who are registered legal practitioners. This regulation may present a barrier to innovation because of the constraints it places on the way legal services are delivered and, as a result, it may limit the ability of the legal profession to respond to evolving client needs …

Towards Synthetic protein-structures based on precision macromolecules: can we beat nature in designing catalysts?

Up for a challenge? In this project you can explore if you can beat nature in making catalytic systems! Over billions of years, nature has perfected the design and synthesis of high molecular weight precision macromolecules, which are able to execute a specific function in a complex biological environment such as proteins.

‘race for the surface’: designing the next generation antimicrobial biomaterials

When a biomaterial is implanted into the body and bacteria get into the implantation site, both the bacteria and tissue cells actively seek to establish their colonization on the biomaterial surface. This process, called ‘the race for the surface’ by Anthony Gristina in 1987, is still a subject of intense investigation. It is generally accepted that a biomaterial’s success in integrating with the body depends on if tissue cells win or the bacteria win the race. However, evidence from the …

High tech vs high touch: designing IT for preventing homelessness

This project is about preventing homelessness for mature women before it begins. This aim is to intervene prior to the crisis occurring, that is, we aim to intervene when housing stress is occurring or likely to occur (nb. housing stress is defined here as meaning having difficulty maintaining safe and appropriate housing).According to the health continuum of prevention, three stages of harm prevention exist:primary (prevent the harm occurring)secondary (attempt to stop existing harm early)tertiary (attempt to reduce the impact of …
