Martin is a Beacon Fellow within the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Adelaide. His research interests sit broadly in restoration ecology, ecological genomics, and plant adaptation, which he applies in urban, rural, production, and wild habitats.
Martin returned to the University of Adelaide as an ARC DECRA Fellow in 2015, and established new research strengths in plant adaptation and restoration genomics. From 2013 to 2014 Martin was a Swedish Research Council postdoctoral Fellow at Uppsala University, Sweden, in Prof Jon Ågren’s plant ecology and evolution laboratory.
Dr Heather Bray is a researcher exploring community understandings of, and attitudes to, the role of science and technology in food production, in particular genetically-modified crops and food, and farm animal welfare.
She has recently returned to full-time research after working for over 10 years in science communication, developing community engagement programs for agricultural research centres that use complex and controversial technologies. Her background is in agricultural science and she has worked as an animal scientist in both Australia and the Netherlands.
I am Professor of Health Ethics in the School of Public Health. I am a bioethicist, with considerable experience in the use of qualitative research methods (including deliberative approaches such as Citizens’ Juries) to explore public health issues, including obesity, immunization and pandemics. I also contribute to a program of research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander methodologies and chronic disease prevention.
