About the scholarship
The human body clock (circadian rhythm) is synchronized to the 24 hour solar day. The fact that artificial lighting (e.g. LEDs) in the built environment (e.g. homes and offices) is not matched to the change in spectral content of the outdoor lighting can negatively impact a person’s sleep, alertness and health.
This project aims to develop innovative lighting technologies designed to suit our circadian rhythm.
If successful, you'll work closely with Associate Professor Andrew J. Zele (Visual Science Laboratory, Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation) on an Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project, in collaboration with a multidisciplinary research team including:
- Associate Professor Beatrix Feigl (Medical Retina Laboratory, Faculty of Health; Queensland Eye Institute)
- Dr Ajay K. Pandey (Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Science and Engineering Faculty).
You'll benefit from being part of a larger research team that includes postdoctoral research fellows, research technicians and PhD students.
