LAW

Administering Organisation

Project Summary

Charles Sturt University

This project reduces miscarriages of justice by identifying topics about which jurors benefit from specialised knowledge by an expert witnesses and the best way to deliver that information so they are better equipped to appropriately assess the credibility of child victims and offenders and render verdicts in cases of child sexual assault.

BIOCHEMISTRY AND CELL BIOLOGY

Administering Organisation

Project Summary

Macquarie University

Arterial stiffness causes high blood pressure with age, so with more people living longer it is important to understand why arteries become stiff. This investigation uses genetically engineered mice to study how changes in nitric oxide in the cells of the artery wall can lead to changes in the wall material and so affect arterial stiffness.

ZOOLOGY

Administering Organisation

Project Summary

Macquarie University

This project unravels how small brained desert ants navigate expertly using simple and coarse grade visual cues, focusing on 1) how they use skylines, where the tops of terrestrial objects meet the sky, and 2) how they search efficiently for goals. The outcomes will be invaluable for designing robots that can navigate in the messy natural outdoors.

Project Summary

Macquarie University

By incorporating natural selection into models of vegetation, this project will help to predict what sorts of plants are found where and why. This will greatly improve the ability to predict the likely outcomes of human impacts (changing climates, increased disturbance, logging) for future vegetation and species diversity.

PURE MATHEMATICS

Dr Richard Garner

Project Summary

Macquarie University

Pure mathematics creates abstractions of real world entities; one such is the idea of a 'topological space', which abstracts from geometric forms like cubes and toruses. But topological spaces fail to capture geometric structures arising in areas like quantum physics; and this project seeks to rectify this, by developing a new more general notion.

Project Summary

Macquarie University

This project pursues the hypothesis that what distinguishes human persons from animals is a certain form of sociality consisting of 'attitudes of recognition'. Understanding the role of these attitudes in the coming about and flourishing of human persons and their communities is essential for fostering the social fabric of multicultural Australia.

COGNITIVE SCIENCE

Administering Organisation

Project Summary

Macquarie University

How do children learn language? Do they first learn to recognise words and then associate words with meanings, or do they use the meanings to figure out what the words are, or do they do both at the same time, and if so, how? This project will investigate questions like these using advanced computational models of the way children learn from their environment.

COGNITIVE SCIENCE

Administering Organisation

Project Summary

Macquarie University

As computers become smaller, keyboards and screens become increasingly impractical. We'd like to be able to talk to our computers, but they'd have to understand what we say. This project will develop a computational model that tracks which things are talked about and identifies 'who did what to whom' in text or speech.

Project Summary

Macquarie University

Spelling is an important skill when expressing one's thoughts in writing and an acute challenge for at least ten per cent of Australian students, who can be years behind in their knowledge. This project will help to improve spelling training by establishing how to facilitate generalisation of spelling knowledge from a learned word to new words.

Project Summary

Macquarie University

Terahertz (THz) radiation holds enormous potential to improve the security and well being of Australians, but its application has been largely restricted to the laboratory. By using photonic crystals (structures responsible for shimmer of opals and butterfly wings) this project will generate a new technology enabling its practical and widespread application.
