Dr Kwong is a senior lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Adelaide. He is the member of the Center for Energy Technology with specialization in greenhouse gas emission control and the combustion of fossil and biomass fuels, but also works with indoor air quality and sustainable waste management. His research focuses on developing low cost technologies to assist with the transition from fossil to sustainable economy. He is experienced in characterizing the emissions from the combustion of biomass and fossil fuels.
Expertise in nonparametric inference and applied statistics in academic research and consulting in human nutrition, food sensory, soil and plant sciences, including design and analysis of experiments and observational studies. University teaching and workplace training in biometry, sensometrics and research methods in agriculture.
Roman Kostecki graduated from Flinders University BSc (Hon) (Physics and Mathematics) and completed his PhD in the Department of Physics at the University of Adelaide. He is currently a Research Fellow with the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), working on the development of new devices for measurements and sensing at a nanoscale level to provide new ways of understanding cellular processes within the human body.
I am Professor and Chair of Applied Ecology and Conservation in the School of Biological Sciences, and the Environment Institute, at the University of Adelaide in South Australia.
I also currently take on the following key appointments:
• Director, Centre for Applied Conservation Science
• Director, Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility
• Research and Innovation Fellow, Conservation International
• Australian Research Council Future Fellow Level II
Professor Alison Kitson is Dean of Nursing and Head of School University of Adelaide and is an Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College, University of Oxford in the UK. Before coming to Australia Alison held a number of strategic leadership and executive positions in one of the world’s largest professional organisations for nursing, the Royal College of Nursing of the United Kingdom.
Originally from the UK, I completed my BSc in zoology with applied zoology from the University of Wales before undertaking a PhD programme at the University of Leed researching boar effects on gilt puberty. I then moved to Massey University in New Zealand for 2 years researching the impact of lactation length on sow fertility. I then moved to Canada and conducted research in various areas, including nutritional effects on sow fertility. I received my DVM from Saskatchewan in 1995 and moved back to Alberta as the provincial swine research veterinarian.
My main research interests include Structural Geology, Tectonics and Petroleum Geomechanics.
I am involved un a large investigation studying deepwater fold-thrust belts, in particular the impact of the detachment lithology, thickness and strength on structural style. I am also working on natural fracture systems and deformation bands and how they influence fluid flow in the subsurfacewith respect tot he present-day stress but also throughout their evolution since initiaition.
Stephen graduated from the University of Queensland (PhD - molecular microbiology) and then undertook postdoctoral work at the University of Birmingham (UK) with Prof Nigel Brown. He moved to the University of Adelaide in 2008 where he works on pathogenic bacteria. He has consistently worked on gene regulation in bacteria.
