Dr Matthew Emes is a Research Associate in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Adelaide. Matthew completed his Ph.D. with a Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence in 2017 and a Bachelor of Mechanical and Sustainable Energy in 2013. Matthew's Ph.D. focused on the turbulent flow in the atmospheric boundary layer and the aerodynamic effects of the wind loads on heliostats in stow position. His research involves developing innovative techniques for measuring and characterising atmospheric turbulence in wind tunnel and field experiments.

Kate's research focuses primarily on trait evolution and speciation in squamate reptiles, and the evolution of sensory systems in the transition to aquatic habitats in snakes. Her research has a substantial fieldwork component focused primarily in Indonesia and Western Australia; this has led to the discovery of new species, and generated ecological and distributional data that have contributed to conservation assessments.
I am a Research Fellow in the Computer Science Education Research Group. I have qualifications in Education and expertise in Computer Science (Digital Technologies) Education, Teacher Training and Educational Technology. I have collaborated extensively with various stakeholders across industry, education, and government to deliver education and research initiatives. I receive invitations to contribute expertise and presentations toward a broad range of communities, including Computing, Higher Education, Teacher Education, government, industry and community associations.
I am a Senior Research Fellow with the Future of Employment and Skills Research Centre. My research centres on the aged care, disability and healthcare sectors with a particular focus on workforce issues and program evaluation.
Our research group focuses on aquatic waters (freshwater, estuarine and marine) with a strong focus on fish and cephalopods, and environmental issues. The group is part of the Southern Seas Ecology Laboratories in the School of Biological Sciences and the Environment Institute.
