New technologies for security screening in public spaces.

Use your research talents and ingenuity to make the world safer. Our research focuses on creating new and innovative technologies for security screening at airports and other high-risk public spaces. Read more

Photoconduction of wide bandgap semiconductor materials and devices

Wide bandgap semiconductors (bandgap > 3.5 eV) are vital materials for applications in ultraviolet (UV) optoelectronic devices for, e.g., biochemical sensing, water purification, or high-power transistors. Read more

Seeing is believing: Microscopy-capable nanoelectronics for simultaneous optical/electrical study of biomolecules

We are seeking expressions of interest to apply for Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) scholarships to join us for an interdisciplinary project aimed at developing new bioelectronic sensor technologies for studying membrane proteins at single molecule level by electronic methods.

Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

Techno-economic optimisation of the CO2 value chain

The utilisation of CO2 within the Power-to-X (PtX) concept can produce value added products, such as fuels and chemicals that can substitute fossil value chains and has the potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

Damage characterisation and root cause analysis of wind turbine pitch bearings

Blade pitch bearings of large scale wind turbines control the individual blades in order to maximise power generation at low wind speeds and to prevent turbine damages under high winds. Read more

Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Adjoint based optimization of vertical axis wind turbines

Recently vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have been more installed in urban areas than before. They are known to perform better in urban regions compared to horizontal axis wind turbines as they do not require alignment to the oncoming flow. Read more
