My current phD project:
The main focus of my research is to understand the molecular basis of toxin accumulation in common vetch and then use genome editing tools to correct the perturbation and produce zero toxin vetch. Zero toxin, protein rich vetch will be a game changer for the industry! It will allow the grain to be extensively used in new markets, for example as a valuable protein source in the poultry industry, and even human food.

My main interest is applied research involving facial comparisons by humans and automated systems. This includes facial recognition, facial identification, and facial matching. I am also interested in evaluating and developing biometric technologies that can aid in the identification of children for law enforcement purposes.
More broadly, I am interested in forensic comparison sciences, human identification, human factors, forensic psychology, and deep learning.

In August 2017, Dr Manasi Mittinty obtained her PhD in Medicine, entitled ‘Vitamin D deficiency and its role in chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain.’ She examined the role of vitamin D (deficiency and supplementation) in chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain, from primary health care and patient perspective. She also investigated the intricate role play between psychological and social factors on persistent pain.
Farjana began her journey with the University of Adelaide under the school of architecture and built environment as a Ph.D. candidate in 20th October 2014. Her research topic is "Towards a socially sustainable educational space: A study about the wayfinding design tools for the autism friendly inclusive learning environment in South Australian primary schools."Her research aim is to develop a design tool for wayfinding design for children with autism to be used by the architects and designers when designing an inclusive school in South Australia.
I am a provisionally registered psychologist completing the PhD / Masters of Psychology (Clinical) program. My research interests include resilience, animal companionship and social support. Furthermore, I have enjoyed learning and developing my skills in different research types, such as Systematic Review and Quantitative research, and have a particular interest in research design.
Currently working as a Research Engineer, I'm responsible for providing technical assistance, execution of research experiments and analysis, the preparation of research data, and day-to-day maintenance of the biomechanics laboratory for the Spinal Research Group and Centre for Orthopaedics and Trauma research program. The Biomechanics Laboratory of the Spinal Research Group and the Centre for Orthopaedics and Trauma Research is focussed on improving understanding of the biomechanics of the spine, and more generally the musculoskeletal system, in healthy, diseased and injured states.
