Teaching has informed and enlivened my interest in geomorphology but it is field work that has not only challenged but driven my studies of landforms and landscapes. Not only the massive forms but even the minor features developed on granite and related rock types fascinate me. Palaeosurfaces and stark rocky landscapes, particularly in arid and semi-arid areas of the Australian continent, together with the dune systems both old and recent have resulted in collaborative work with various colleagues and students.
Broad range of work experience in the sciences, from botany to surgery. Finalizing a 7-year NHMRC-funded project in 2016 which examined patient outcomes after endovascular aneurysm repair.
Enrolled as a higher degree student at University of Adelaide in 2016 in the History Department, looking at history of epilepsy in South Australia.
Dr Jayakumar Bose is a recipient of Australian Research Council - Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA 2017). His major discoveries have been in the field of plant stress physiology. He advanced how ion transport mechanisms govern plant adaptive responses to salt and aluminium stresses, by combining state-of-the-art biophysical, molecular, intracellular ion, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) imaging techniques. He is an expert in electrophysiology; specifically on Micro-electrode Ion Flux Estimation (MIFE®) technique.
