Ways to support this work

This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are three usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. For this reason unless I am given specific instructions about who a donor is and that you are happy for me to share publicly that you are a patron of my work I do not thank individual donors publicly.

Having said this, I believe that the best advertisement for my work is your support. It is much easier for people to believe others when they speak about the value of my work than when I make my own claims about it. Your willingness to share the reason you support my work is what inspires other people to support my work. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share that you do with your networks.

About this Project

With new Ministers announced regularly, this Commonwealth Grants project maps each Minister against the grants made during their tenure in any given position. A new Minister (or occasionally an entire Ministry) has been published on average every eight weeks since the beginning of the 2017-18 financial year (mid 2017). I've created a new dataset with these positions and dates to map both budget data (which operates on a financial year) and Commonwealth the grants that each agency claims are coming out of annual budget appropriations.

Portfolios are the administrative lines drawn between specific agencies and responsible Ministers. Each Portfolio administers specific agencies and those agencies can only spend funding appropriated through Parliament and documented in the Portfolio Budget Statements published on budget night or the MYEFO updates each December or Portfolio Additional Estimate Statements published in February.

Portfolio names change when Administrative Arragement Orders are made by the presiding government. This can change the portfolio to which an agency is attributed or the Minister responsible. The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison announced significant changes to the Portfolios and agencies they administed which came into effect on 1, February 2020.

At launch, only grants published since GrantsConnect went live in January 2018 are included in the data. This means that only one full financial year is covered in the data, with the 2019-20 financial year still unfolding at this point. Commonwealth grants data contains agency and program names as per the budget documents published in budget night. I have integrated these datasets despite the challenges posed by Administrative Arrangement Orders made after budget night. Given the intention of this project is to link grant decisions with resposnible Ministers, queries are based on the approval date in each grant notice as opposed to the publication date.

Publication date is based on start date of the grant and can vary substantially from the approval date. Grants are republished at a later date where variations have been made. If there is a significant time difference between grant approval and variation, different Ministers and governments can be responsible for those variations.

Commonwealth grants data has been published at GrantsConnect since Jan 2018 under the CC By 3.0 licence.

There are several dates in Commonwealth grants data: approval date, publication date, start-end dates and the budget/financial year from which each grant is appropriated. According to Department of Finance media, publication is required by the approving agency on GrantConnect 'no later than twenty-one calendar days after the grant agreement takes effect '.

The date of effect [start date] will depend on the particular arrangement. It can be the date on which a grant agreement is executed or a specified starting date. Where there is no grant agreement, the date of effect can be for example, the date of first payment or the announcement of a successful grantee.
The approval date for reporting purposes is the date that the decision-maker makes a decision to award a grant. Where, for example, negotiating a grant agreement takes some time, there may be a delay between the approval date and the date that the grant award information is published.

Where approval, publication and budget years vary significantly this is likely due to the grant being republished in a later year with a variation or delays in the start of the grant. Variation status and reason is not included in GrantConnect download data but is published at the source (GrantConnect) if you click on the button in the Grants tab.

In order to match with budget data, drill-down at this site is based on the financial year (year of budget appropriations) from which the grant was taken, not the year of grant publication. Budget year can vary from approval and publication years.

PurposeWe aim to establish an Antarctic-based set of seismic instruments, a mobile facility, to provide data to help predict how ice sheets will evolve and how the continent under the ice sheets will respond to changes in ice load. Our approach to tackling such significant questions is innovative, and makes use of newly available, rapid deployment instruments that may be deployed in ice by a small team with light logistics. Outcomes will include maps of sub-ice sediments and 3D images of the deep Earth. The facility will thus enable new knowledge relating to major ice sheets. Interdisciplinary use of the research will benefit Australia through an improved ability to plan for future sea level rise in areas with large coastal populations.

PurposeThis project will develop a general framework of accurate automatic recognition of meaningful anomalies in multivariate sensor data streams that require action to avoid detrimental events and allow automatic intervention for efficient mitigation. Existing anomaly recognition algorithms miss many patterns and manually relating co-occurring stream patterns to an anomaly is inefficient and error-prone. The project expects to develop methods for intercepting a combination of co-occurring patterns to ascertain what an anomaly is and identify the anomaly and its stages that indicate the necessity of intervention. This project will advance techniques for sensor stream data mining and enable general applications of sensor surveillance and automatic mechanical intervention.

Much research in affective computing has investigated ways to improve the sensitivity of affect sensing approaches, resulting in more accurate estimates of affective states such as emotions or mood. What remains unsolved so far is the issue of specificity. This project will address this issue through novel analyses of very subtle cues in facial and vocal expressions of affect embedded in a multimodal deep learning framework. Current approaches can successfully assist in binary classification tasks.

PurposeThis proposal aims to assess the impact of geographical and genetic isolation of the Australian Indigenous population on adaptive and innate immune systems. The project will use novel DNA sequencing approaches to generate the high resolution sequences of two genetic loci that regulate innate and adaptive immune responses, the major histocompatibility complex locus and the killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor locus. In an initial screen, distinct variants and combinations of these genes were identified. This project aims to interrogate how variation in these critical genes impacts on the function of cytotoxic lymphocytes, providing insights into the evolutionary drivers of immune recognition mechanisms.

PurposeThis project aims to develop more efficient algorithms to simulate quantum chemistry on quantum computers. Quantum computers have the potential to perform calculations that would be intractable for even the largest supercomputers, but need to be programmed in a radically different way to achieve this speed. One of the most important applications of quantum computers is to simulate quantum mechanics to predict the properties of molecules and materials, and thereby design them. Current quantum algorithms are very resource intensive, making them impractical for the foreseeable future. The expected outcome of this project is to provide much more efficient algorithms that can be run on quantum processors in the near future.

PurposeThis project aims to understand how resistance proteins function and to find new sources of these proteins. Plant diseases account for 15% loss of global crop production, representing a threat to food security. Fungicides, one key form of protection, represent environmental concerns. The other key form of protection corresponds to resistance gene breeding, which is limited by lengthy breeding processes, restricted choice of genes from sexually compatible species and short effective time spans in the field. Building on previous research, this project aims to characterise the molecular basis of the Toll/interleukin-1 receptor domain-mediated nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) cleavage and the structural architecture of plant NLR complexes. This knowledge will support the long-term objective of protecting crops from pathogens.

PurposeThis project aims to develop real-time optimal control algorithms for distributed parameter systems involving both time and spatial variables and multiple time-delays, with a focus on mining and energy applications. Current optimal control algorithms for such systems are too slow for real-time use and often get trapped at local optima, which can be vastly inferior to the global solution. This project will result in a new optimal control framework, underpinned by recent advances in constraint propagation, switching surface optimisation, and input regularisation. It will result in cutting-edge mathematical tools to complement and exploit new technologies and optimise key processes in natural gas liquefaction and zinc and alumina production, increasing efficiency and reducing the ecological footprint. This project will lead to new cutting-edge control algorithms for replacing the inefficient manual operations endemic in Australia's natural gas and mineral processing plants.

PurposeThis project aims to develop tools to assist the study of partial differential equations, which are fundamental to our understanding of the physical world. Symmetries of the Laplace equation are fundamental in both finding and interpreting its solutions and can be traced to the conformal symmetries of the underlying space. Only for the most symmetric of spaces, Euclidean space and the sphere, is this correspondence well understood. Using powerful geometric tools from conformal geometry, the project will extend this to less symmetric spaces. The knowledge generated from this project will extend to more general geometric contexts providing a concrete setting for the study of the associated natural equations in curved spaces.

PurposeBiochemical production utilising fermentation processes evidences poor product repeatability. This project aims to control and optimise 1,3-propanediol production via microbial fermentation. 1,3-propanediol is an essential ingredient for many polymeric materials and is present in cosmetics, personal care and cleaning products. New theory and parallel algorithms will be developed for the control and optimisation of the microbial fermentation of 1,3-propanediol production, where the bacteria kinetic parameters are uncertain without full knowledge of the probability distribution. This theory will also be applicable to other fermentation processes. The project outcomes are expected to significantly improve the productivity of the biochemical engineering industry involving fermentation processes.

PurposeThis project aims to better understand microRNAs, which are of central importance to how genes are regulated.-Despite recent data indicating microRNAs may also play more extensive and diverse roles as nuclear regulators of gene transcription, research has been restricted to their well known mechanism of action in the cytoplasm where they post transcriptionally silence genes. This project will investigate the potential for microRNAs to regulate transcription on a genome-wide scale and will thereby reveal the full extent of mechanisms by which these important genetic switches control gene expression networks the characteristics of cells. This is of fundamental significance to our understanding of gene regulation.

PurposeThis project aims to determine the electrical properties of dendrites in human neurons. Dendrites are the primary site of synaptic input to neurons and their electrical properties play a key role in information processing in the brain. While we know much about the electrical properties of dendrites in other species, primarily rodents, little is known about the electrical properties of human dendrites. This project aims to address this gap in knowledge for the first time. The results obtained will shed light on the mechanisms the brain uses to process information, and therefore will bring us a step closer to truly understanding ourselves.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate how local tissue renin-angiotensin systems operate. A blood-borne renin-angiotensin system (RAS) produces a peptide (AngII) to control blood pressure, and fluid/salt balance. Many tissues, such as the brain and heart, also possess an independent, tissue RAS, but how these function is not well understood. The project will use a model whereby infiltrating macrophages (following damage to the heart) drive the activation of this system to trigger the local generation of AngII. This project addresses the question of where exactly in the heart the RAS components are turned on, how they interact to generate AngII and whether the activation of the local RAS is beneficial or not to cardiac function. The findings should provide critical insights into an important hormonal system.

PurposeThis project aims to examine the mechanisms that explain the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe.-Particle physics seeks to understand the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. This project will use the new Belle II detector at the SuperKEKB collider in Japan to address the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry, and why fundamental matter particles have enormous mass differences across the three generations. The project aims to develop new data mining techniques to fully exploit the data from the Belle II experiment, placing Australian researchers in a position to make a major discovery of new physics phenomena in order to complete the theory of the universe at the smallest scale.
