Lifelong semantic mapping of large scale environments

When building a map of objects inside a real environment, this map can become quickly outdated as objects are moved around over time. This is especially true when the map is on the scale of a house, warehouse or a city.This PhD project investigates new methods for keeping a high-resolution semantic map up-to-date using partial, and possibly low-resolution, snapshots. These environment snapshots can be captured by sensors mounted on moving agents, such as vehicles and mobile robots. …

Mapping specificity of allergen recognition for precision medicine in allergic rhinitis and asthma

Approximately two thirds of the 19.3% of Australians with allergic rhinitis (hayfever) are allergic to grass pollen allergens. The QUT Allergy Research Group has shown regional differences in patterns of allergic sensitisation to grass pollens of different subfamilies of grasses. Whilst the major allergen components have been cloned and expressed, and the relative avidity of patient serum IgE to a panel of these allergens has been determined, the comparative epitope specificity of patient serum IgE for related allergens from different …

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, …

Visualising plasmonic optical trapping by ToF-SIMS

Plasmonic metal nanoparticles (NP) can intensely absorb visible light due to the localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) effect. This is where the conduction electrons gain the energy of the incident light through LSPR effect. Furthermore, the oscillating electric dipole generates intense electromagnetic field in close proximity to the NP.The application of photo-excited energetic electrons in direct photocatalysis of metal NPs is well established by our previous studies. However, the plasmonic field enhancement property has not yet been widely used in …
