Mapping the perpetration of violence in Australia

This PhD involves a contribution to The Perpetration Project, a program of national research on the perpetration of violence in Australia. This research will map the extent and character of men’s and women’s use of violence and violence-related behaviours in intimate, domestic, and family settings. Associate Professor Michael Flood is co-leading the project, with collaborators in two external organisations, the Equality Institute and the Accountability Matters Project. This project began in 2020.The Perpetration Project will provide the first national data …

NHMRC Idea Grant: intergenerational living and learning models

This research project acts upon recommendations from the Inquiry into the Quality of Care and Residential Aged Care in Australia IQCRAC (2018) by developing an inter-generational model for senior living within school campuses in consultation with industry partners. The project differs from existing programs by establishing an economic policy-driven 'shared campus facilities and services' approach which is person-centred, health focused and socially inclusive. The model intends to be translatable across diverse Australian contexts, from urban realms where land is limited, …

Dynamics of partisanship and polarisation in online public debate

Polarisation presents an urgent challenge. It intensifies social conflicts, threatens economic prosperity, undermines public trust, and ultimately destabilises societies. Such instability can be exploited by domestic extremists or foreign influence campaigns to weaken sovereign states. Distracted by polarisation at home, nations also lose their influence in the international community. While Australia has been less affected, so far, than other leading democracies, our society is not immune to creeping polarisation, and we must understand the threats we face.This $3.5million, five-year ARC …

Coalstoun Lakes volcanic field – subsurface lava flow and aquifer mapping

This project is to assist a current MPhil project investigating the physical volcanology and evolution of the Coalstoun Lakes Volcanic Field and Barambah Creek lava flow between Gayndah and Biggenden in southeast Queensland.The volcanic eruptions were anomalously young (~600,000 years old) and the volcanic field now supports a valuable local agricultural industry. Groundwater is a valuable resource to support the agricultural industry. Lava fields can have high permeability and act as important aquifers.The aim of this project is to make …

Plasmonic optical trapping

Light irradiation is commonly accepted to be the best stimulus to artificially stimulate chemical systems. Over the past few decades tremendous progress has been made in the synthesis and application of photo switchable catalysts with the capability of gaining control over when and where bond formations and dissociations take place in molecules. On an environmentally friendly plasmonic metal nanoparticle surface, light irradiation can change the reactants adsorption on the surface, and thus change the relative ratio of the reactants for …
