Derek Leinweber is a Professor of Physics at the University of Adelaide. Prof Leinweber's research program is driven by a desire to elucidate the phenomena emerging from the fundamental relativistic quantum field theory of the strong interactions, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). As a key component of the Standard Model of the Universe, QCD describes the interactions between quarks and gluons as they compose the proton, neutron and a great zoo of other particles.

Dr Lang holds an Early Career Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC). Carol has previously undertaken laboratory based research into the composition and function of pulmonary surfactant and has studied the role of the dietary metal zinc, and the proteins that transport zinc, in allergic, viral and smoke-induced airway inflammation and respiratory disease.

Professor Martin Lambert, Head of School, School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering
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.
