Improving flows in rivers and estuaries
Professor Richard Brown received an ARC Linkage Grant for his project which implements real-time satellite monitoring for flow in rivers and estuaries. This flow system will provide stakeholders with more information to enable them to better manage issues including storm surge and corrosion.Read the full story
Hunting for energy vampires
Dr Wendy Miller is using thermal science to educate people about how energy leaks out of their homes, and the impact this can have on their electricity bills. Through a simple infrared camera attached to an iPhone, Dr Miller's project is helping to save money and the environment.Read the full story
Biotech research gives nutritional boost to livestock
Associate Professor Robert Speight is using a new gene editing technique to provide a nutritional boost for livestock feed. The method, which involves making precise changes to the genome of living cells, also reduces feed costs for farmers and graziers.Read the full story
