Professor Stephan Matthai will examine how computer-simulation based research and insights from complex systems science can help to assess the performance and environmental impact of subsurface engineering projects so that potential side effects can be eliminated prior to project implementation.
Novel hydrodynamic modelling is helping to unravel the forces behind the life-threatening clumping of human proteins that can trigger type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, as well as many other conditions.
Known variously as bioelectronics or electroceuticals, emerging therapies that use the electronics or electrical stimulation of the nervous system to treat chronic disease offer exciting potential for improved human health and wellbeing.
The need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is driving innovation in the passenger vehicle industry, and the University of Melbourne is at the forefront of research efforts through its longstanding partnership with the Ford Motor Company.
