Postgraduate Student
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Dr Abel Santos

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

I received my Msc and PhD in Electronic Engineering (Magna Cum Laude) by the University Rovira i Virgili (URV – Spain) in 2011. After a short (2011-2012) post-doctoral research position in the Department of Electronic Engineering (URV), I undertook a post-doctoral research position (Level A) associated with an ARC Discovery Project in the School of Chemical Engineering at The University of Adelaide in January 2012. I was awarded with an ARC DECRA Fellowship (commencing 2014) and appointed to Level B in January 2014.

Kehinde Erinle

Faculty of Sciences

Previously, I had worked on different strategies for remediation of contaminated soils, and reuse of remediated soils for agricultural purposes. Presently, I am working on the effect of drought stress on nutrient cycling in residue amended soils, in South Australia. My work majorly emphasises the effect of drought on Phosphorus cycling in the detritusphere. Information on nutrient cycling in the detritusphere is very limiting at the moment, hence my work is to improve knowledge on this aspect.

Dr Danielle Taylor

Research Associate
Faculty of Arts

Dr Danielle Taylor is a Research Associate with the Australian Population and Migration Research Centre (APMRC) at the University of Adelaide. She has a PhD in Geography (2013) and a MA in Spatial Information Science (2002), both from The University of Adelaide. Her PhD research investigated temporal trends and spatial patterns in birthweight variation, and in particular looked at the influence of socio-economic and contextual variables and their association with birthweight.

Associate Professor David Ottaway

Associate Professor
Faculty of Sciences

A/Prof David Ottaway is a Theme Leader for the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS).
