Mark specialises in physical chemistry, particularly in examining chemical reactions/processes. He administers the first year subjects in chemistry and is the point of contact for all first year chemistry students.
Associate Dean, Learning and Teaching. Mathematics
Shaun is interested in the role of mathematics and mathematicians in interdisciplinary pursuits in education such as collaboration in learning and teaching for science and engineering students and teacher education.
Sara's research focuses on performance enhancement in elite sport, injury prevention, and wearable technology. She also undertakes research in the area of pedagogical practices with a focus on assisting students with numeracy.
Sourav Das has broad interests in modelling and methodology, spatial statistics and time series. He teaches Data Science at JCU and also provides statistical consultancy for clinical science researchers.
Yvette is dedicated to identifying strategies that will deliver better learning and teaching outcomes in interdisciplinary science education, and using Big Data Analytics to enhance the sustainability of agricultural systems.
Carla has strong interests in statistical modelling and methods, particularly in the Bayesian framework. To date, she has worked in the field of marine and medical research, genetics, agriculture and fisheries.
Patrick’s research extends to the Flow Over Topography and numerical solutions to partial differential equations, seepage through porous media, teaching technologies and learning strategies for mathematics education.
Daniel's researches theoretical and computational chemical physics with applications to material science, nanotechnology, and biology. He develops new conceptual theoretical approaches as well as computer codes for modelling real systems.
Environmental Chemist. Head of Discipline – Chemistry
Mike's current research interests are broadly in environmental science. He runs the TERN Rainforest Ecosystem Process site at Robson Creek and is also active in two TERN sites in the Daintree. In addition he works in the lab on peptide toxins.
Yang’s research interests are primarily in the exploration of innovative analytical technologies based on electrochemical reactions, including application of nanomaterials for label-free sensor devices.
D'Arcy has recently moved his research focus from physics to mathematics education. D'Arcy has a keen interest in teaching and has received two ALTC citations as well as a JCU excellence in teaching award.
Michael's research includes the synthesis of bioactive compounds, the solar production of commodity chemicals from biomass, the development of new photochemical synthesis tools and light-driven water treatment.
Mark has worked on medicinal chemistry projects including antibiotics, chemotherapeutics and epilepsy treatments. His research interests include the use of flow chemistry and using solar power to drive chemical reactions.
Kelly's research areas focus on Bayesian statistical modelling, time series, state-space models and high dimensional data. She has extensive experience in developing and implementing machine learning algorithms in finance and health systems.
Martijn combines modelling and field studies to understand how wildlife copes with our rapidly changing environment. He specializes in the impacts of sea level rise, global warming, human disturbance and predators on population numbers.
Greg's research focuses on theoretical and computational plasma physics. He is interested in modeling electron and positron transport in gases and liquids, as well as plasma applications for next-generation compact particle-accelerators.
Rosalind’s research interests lie in the understanding of the structure-property relationships of transition metal oxides, sulphides and silicates, with particular emphasis on energy storage materials.
