PurposeThis project aims to understand the nature and mechanisms of spatial contextual modulation and the relationship between spatial and temporal context. Contextual modulation refers to the sometimes profound changes in the appearance of the visual image caused by interactions across space and time. Little work has been done to examine whether spatial context effects exist for high-level attributes of objects, and socially relevant stimuli such as heads and bodies. This project expects to provide new knowledge regarding the way that contextual modulation is mediated by interactions within the normal human visual system. This will provide significant societal benefits as contextual interactions in sensory processing can have profound consequences for our perceptual experience.

PurposeThis project aims to better understand the structure and properties of very large hypergraphs of various kinds.-Hypergraphs are very general mathematical objects which can be used to model complex discrete systems. They arise naturally in many areas such as ecology, chemistry and computer science. Despite this, our theoretical understanding of very large, or random, hypergraphs lags far behind the intensely'studied special case of graphs. This project will answer many fundamental questions about large, random hypergraphs. The expected outcomes of the project also include new tools for working with hypergraphs, such as efficient algorithms for sampling hypergraphs. These outcomes will benefit researchers who use hypergraphs in their work and will enhance Australia's reputation for research in this area.

Repeated use of such simulations is necessary to identify optimum solutions. Even with today's computing power, many such tasks remain computationally prohibitive. This project presents a novel approach to solve optimisation problems involving iterative solvers with limited computing budget. A wide range of industries involved in product and process design would gain a significant competitive advantage from this unique technical innovation.

The project will adapt this framework to the study of revenue-maximising multi-object auctions with complementarities, and to house allocation problems and related situations where efficiency and priority assignments are important considerations. The project expects to provide policy insights and implications relevant to the Australian housing market.

PurposeThis project aims to develop an evolutionary computation framework for robust multi-objective design, a critical pursuit in engineering industries. Such problems are characterised by multiple conflicting performance objectivesand constraints which are highly nonlinear, often black-box, and prone to unavoidable real-life uncertainties. The existing evolutionary algorithms are often computationally impractical and have a number of fundamentalshortcomings which restrict their use in real applications. This project aims to investigate and overcome the underlying key challenges to advance knowledge and contribute towards diverse domains such as energy, transport and space research, helping deliver high quality robust designs.

PurposeThis project aims to determine how early-life stress affects emotional, social, cognitive, and neural processes not only in those directly exposed to such adversity but also in subsequent generations that were only indirectly exposed through their parent's experiences. Past research shows that the adverse effects of early-life stress are pervasive, affecting cognitive, social, and emotional behaviours as well as the body and the brain. The project intends to test the acceleration hypothesis that early-life stress speeds up maturation, especially for behavioural/neural systems involved in fear. Expected outcomes include insights into the mechanisms leading to adult dysfunction. Intended benefits of these insights include the development of effective treatments that can be given early in life.

PurposeThis project aims to engineer novel quantum electronic devices based on strongly-coupled, one-dimensional superconducting microcircuits. These will be realised using chains of nanoscale superconducting islands fabricated on a chip. The project expects to achieve a special type of insulating state, where individual charges can be transported one by one. This would be significant as a primary standard that precisely links time (or frequency) to charge. The project also aims to create a current mirror device, in which a supercurrent sent down one chain induces a reflected supercurrent in the other, forming the basis of a new superconducting quantum bit. Other devices will be used to study a simplified model related to high temperature superconductors.

PurposeThis project aims to create a new class of electrocatalysts with architectures inspired by enzymes. Electrocatalysts are the backbone of the modern energy economy. In the new electrocatalysts developed by the project, the intention is the active sites will be spatially separated from the bulk solution by nanopores, as enzymes do. This architecture allows the reaction environment to be altered from the bulk solution, active transport of species to the active site and cascade reactions to be performed. This should give advantages in activity, selectivity and the ability to perform multistep reactions. The intended outcomes are better performing hydrogen fuel cells and more effective conversion of carbon dioxide into useful organic compounds.

PurposeThis project aims to determine when introduced species escape from their natural enemies, and when biocontrol efforts succeed. Enemy release and biocontrol are key to our understanding and management of invasions. However there has never been a broad quantitative assessment of the circumstances under which biocontrol and enemy release affect introduced populations. This project will use a combination of meta-analyses and international field studies to address this knowledge gap. Expected outcomes include a better understanding of the factors that facilitate biological invasions, and improved success of biocontrol agents.

PurposeThis project aims to significantly improve the analysis of single cells by mass spectrometry with ultrahigh sensitivity. Molecular differences between cells in large populations can be important in many processes, including cell differentiation and signalling. However, most measurements result in the chemical heterogeneity between cells being masked by the bulk population. Recent discoveries now make it feasible to measure thousands of proteins and small molecules from single cells. This project aims to leverage these breakthroughs to allow heterogeneity to be characterised in single cells with unprecedented molecular detail. This is expected to be important for future biological discovery, as well as disease prediction and drug discovery.

PurposeThis project aims to understand the link between substrate specificity and gene sequence of dehalogenating enzymes in organohalide respiring bacteria (ORB) and the mechanism by which electrons are transferred to dehalogenating enzymes through protein-protein interactions. Organohalides were present in Earth's early history and now pollute the environment globally. Organohalide respiring bacteria (ORB) can degrade these pollutants by using them as terminal electron acceptors in their respiratory metabolism. This represents one of the most ancient respiratory systems on Earth about which little is known.

PurposeThis project aims to address questions of whether Earth is a uniquely habitable environment in the Universe. Within just a few years, we will discover the best planets to target in humanity's search for life outside our Solar System. Likely to be found orbiting low-mass M-dwarf stars, these planets will be the focus of bio'signature space missions for decades. Understanding how common these habitable M-dwarf planets are requires a comprehensive model for how the whole population of M-dwarf planets formed and evolved. This project will use new Australian facilities, FunnelWeb and Veloce, to map that broader landscape for M-dwarfs and their planets, and so deliver the critical context needed to interpret the coming wave of habitable planet discoveries.

PurposeThis project aims to implement an innovative approach to modelling ion channel behaviour that employs short, information-rich datasets and parameter inference. Using the hERG potassium channel as a test case, the project will show that this approach is more efficient than current methods and outperforms all published models in independent validations. The project aims to extend on initial implementation to probe the thermodynamics and pharmacology of ion channel gating. The anticipated outcomes are to grow fundamental knowledge of ion channel biophysics and ability to probe ion channel function in silico. The project will build on an emerging collaboration between international leaders in physiology, pharmacology, mathematics and computer modelling.-The methodology and fundamental knowledge generated will significantly advance our understanding of the physiology and biophysics of ion channels, while the application of the method will have direct impact in the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory science.

PurposeThis proposal aims to understand the performance of a unique rheological modifier that can enable an order of magnitude increase in coating efficiency for aerosol sprays while not affecting the quality of droplet formation during spraying. The effect occurs via a dispersed network of fibrous particles in water, providing a weak but useful ability to coat surfaces by responsively adjusting its structure. The material is expected to enable a broad array of applications, from agricultural treatments to nasal sprays, by exhibiting responsive behaviour at concentrations much lower than conventional modifiers require. The project will study the responsiveness of the system in single droplet, spray, and coating form as well as an active delivery system.

PurposeThis project aims to deepen our understanding of how life and earth sciences contributed to global modernity over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The project will focus on two major biologists and communicators of evolutionary theory, Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895) and his grandson Julian Huxley (1887-1975). It will interrogate the questions that the Huxleys raised about the changing nature of time, the deep past and the distant future of humankind, shifting ideas about difference between and within species. By doing so, the project aims to better understand developments from pre- to high- to post-Darwinian eras, and the major institutional and intellectual shifts from imperial to international sciences.

PurposeThis project aims to dissect the complex costs of reproduction, bridging an old divide between evolutionary and biomedical approaches to understanding ageing and lifespan. Merely detecting the smell of another individual, without ever encountering them, can cause an individual to mature sooner, age faster, or live a shorter life. These costs, and the fact that subsequent mating can restore adult ageing and lifespan to "normal" are causing a re-evaluation of the costs of reproduction - an important but enigmatic concept in evolution. This project expects to resolve how and why the physical presence of a mate, or odour cues of such a mate, can have such dramatic effects on ageing and late-life performance.

PurposeThis project will create redox'sensitised ion-accessible dense graphene to improve the energy density of supercapacitors (SCs). The energy density of SCs is a bottle neck for long-lasting power supply to vehicles, small devices and mobile electronics. By incorporating a redox coordination framework in shrunk graphene to increase the charge storage capacity and speed up the charge movement and further incorporating ionic liquids in the tailored electrodes, the project will produce SC's with higher operating voltage and longer cycle life. Such SCs will possess dramatically high energy density, without compromising the power density. This project will improve the efficiency of modern electronics through the development of the next generation of SCs.

PurposeThis project aims to provide novel solutions to two deficiencies in current atmospheric chemistry models. That is, molecular hydrogen (H2) is underestimated by up to a factor of two, and in polluted areas, HO2 concentrations are underestimated by up to a factor of ten. The project will investigate these solutions and assess their local and global atmospheric impact. By better characterising the atmospheric H2 budget, and the role of ground state reactions in general, the predictive ability of atmospheric models will be improved. This will allow, for example, the outcomes of any change in atmospheric H2 concentration, potentially as part of any future hydrogen economy, to be predicted before they occur. The benefits of this project are global: they allow us to better predict the impact of changes to atmospheric composition - before they occur, and local: Australia's strengths in physical, theoretical and atmospheric chemistry are reinforced.

PurposeThis project aims to examine writers' enduring engagement with the riot's destructive energy and its transformative potential. Riots have become a familiar feature of an increasingly volatile global politics, but contemporary responses to these events have a long history across a range of media and modes of writing. Literary writers have historically struggled in the aftermath of riots to make sense of and communicate the collective trauma felt by families and communities who suffer resulting injury, death, homelessness or unemployment. Drawing together writing from Britain, United States of America, Australia and the Middle-East, this project will provide an understanding of the resurgence of the riot in a contemporary global context.

PurposeThis project aims to develop novel mathematical theories and numerical methods for ferromagnetic problems. These problems arise from many real-life applications, for example in storage devices and magnetic sensors, which are often affected by random (thermal) noise. Since thermal noise limits the data-retention time of the devices, analysing the effect of noise is highly significant. Expected outcomes will be novel computational techniques to solve the underlying equations and deal with randomness. The project aims to put Australia in the forefront of international research in numerical methods in micromagnetism. The new computational methods are expected to be used to advance technology in magnetic memory devices.

PurposeThis project aims to establish a new approach to enable a reliable and accurate prediction of precision surface grinding. Precision grinding is often the final step in the manufacturing chains for a broad range of metal, ceramic, optical glass and semiconductor components, which must have ultra-high surface integrity and accurate dimensions. To date, the surface integrity of a ground component cannot be predicted due to the involvement of many random factors and variables in a precision surface grinding process, resulting in high failure rates and processes requiring repeated surface measurements. The novel approach for surface integrity prediction developed by this project will make a vital step forward in advancing the discipline of precision surfacing, establish a new knowledge base and bring about significant technological impacts to the manufacturing industry.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate the impacts of spin/orbital degrees of freedom of electrons in perovskites, and to realise efficient spin injection and transport in perovskite spintronic devices. Halide perovskite is a fast-rising star in the photovoltaic field and possess unique merits including low-cost processing, good charge transport and high light absorption. However there are questions regarding their physical properties. This project will explore the synthesis and characterisation of layered perovskites and lead-free hybrid compounds, and use these new materials in charge/spin transport devices. As a result of the strong charge'spin-orbital correlation in perovskite semiconductors, the project is expected to have a significant impact on not only spin-based devices but also charge-based energy conversion and storage applications related to halide perovskites.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate how defaults and product complexity might be used to exploit consumers in environments like private insurance where consumers are prone to making systematic errors. Defaults are used to nudge individuals into socially beneficial actions such as increasing their retirement savings and joining organ donor lists. However, in the hands of firms, defaults can also be used to exploit consumers by encouraging choices that help the firm but disadvantage consumers. The project intends to study experimentally whether exploitation can be reduced via competition and reputation building systems based on consumer feedback.

PurposeThis project aims to provide a better understanding of the roles that DNA methylation plays during embryonic development. DNA methylation is a major regulatory mark present in vertebrate genomes. It is well established that the genomic patterns of DNA methylation are being actively remodelled during vertebrate embryogenesis. Nevertheless, it remains unclear how these events impact gene regulation and embryonic development itself. This project expects to unravel the functional contributions of DNA methylation to vertebrate embryogenesis by using latest cutting-edge genomics techniques. The project will be carried out on the highly tractable zebrafish model system which allows for easy genetic manipulation of the desired sequences. This project aims to provide a better understanding of embryonic development of vertebrates, including humans.

PurposeThis project aims to improve projections of possible sea level changes.-Sea level rise is among the most significant potential impacts of transient climate change around the world. Poor understanding of the way in which heat is absorbed at the sea surface and distributed by ocean circulation is a leading source of uncertainty in projections of global surface temperature and regional sea level rise by the end of this century. This project aims to apply novel observational methods, complimented by numerical modelling, to quantify the drivers of recent change. This project expects to transform our ability to predict how ocean temperature and sea level will change in the future.

PurposeThis project aims to extend the density and coherence of qubits stored in superconducting-based quantum processors, by exploring the concept of hybrid quantum systems. Quantum computers are expected to impact a diverse range of sectors, from medicine to national security. This project seeks to develop an enabling technology, a memory, for scaling a quantum computer constructed from superconducting circuits, such as those being developed in commercial laboratories. Such scaling would improve the capacity of these processors to tackle complex problems. The quantum technology developed in this project will have immediate application in transforming a widely-used technique for studying the nanoscale structure of biomolecules - distance measurements in electron spin resonance spectroscopy.

PurposeThis project aims to provide a viable solution for heat management in microelectronics by using highly efficient Peltier devices made with thin combinatorial films. Heat generated by electric current, which is ubiquitous in microelectronic devices, has become increasingly problematic for high density charge-based logical circuitries. The project will significantly enhance the energy conversion efficiency of Peltier devices by optimising the interdependent electron and phonon transports, simultaneously, with a new concept of thin combinatorial films for heat management in microelectronic devices. This is expected to facilitate the development of novel materials in Australia, with access to a large global market.

PurposeThis project aims to improve the cost-effectiveness of payments for ecosystem services (PES) programs in settings where deforestation risk is high. The project introduces a field experiment in Uganda in order to determine effective methods for monitoring compliance and setting payment levels. The project intends to examine whether program impacts are undermined by displacement of deforestation and if there are poverty reduction trade-offs inherent in program design. The project expects to establish the costs of foregone production from land enrolled in the program, which are largely unknown. The findings will support efforts to create low cost technologies to solve conservation challenges and assist with the efficient allocation of scarce resources for environmental protection in both Australian and international contexts.

PurposeThis project aims to create novel metal-free carbon-based catalysts to replace the scarce and expensive noble metal catalysts. Noble metal catalysts are needed for clean production of electricity by fuel cells or hydrogen peroxide from hydrogen and oxygen gases. A combined theoretical and experimental approach will be developed for controlled synthesis of heteroatom-doped carbon catalysts and to improve our understanding of the catalytic mechanism and structure-activity relationship for the novel carbon catalysts. The project is expected to lay fundamental groundwork for a new paradigm in carbon-based catalysts that should be of considerable significance for energy and chemical production in a clean and cost effective way.

PurposeThis project aims to develop polymers that can be self-assembled into 2D structures. Most nanoparticles developed for drug delivery are spherical. However these are not always the most efficacious as theory suggest that non'spherical nanoparticles have longer circulation times. It is proposed that discoid morphologies may be advantageous as they tend to migrate to the vascular membrane and adhere more efficiently. The polymers developed by this project will be tailored towards bioactive and biocompatible material to create a drug delivery platform for more efficient disease treatment. The outcome will be better understanding on how polymer platelets can be obtained and how they compare in their biological activity with spherical nanoparticles.

PurposeThis project aims to determine whether production of tear film lipids by meibomian gland cells is regulated by sex steroids. The tear film is essential to eyesight. It protects and nourishes the eye surface to maintain transparency to enable light to reach the retina. To guarantee these functions, exquisite control of tear film composition is required, including the outer lipid layer. Sex hormones, including oestrogen, may control production of the lipid layer by meibomian glands in the eyelid, but this has not been confirmed in humans. This project aims to show whether meibomian glands produce sex hormones, which then control production of tear lipids. This new knowledge will improve our understanding of how the tear film maintains clear vision.

PurposeThis project aims to provide astronomers of the future with firm diagnostic tools to identify and understand exotic carbon species in the interstellar medium.-Life on Earth began after delivery of carbon-based pre-biotic material to the young planet by comets and meteorites. This material came from outside the solar system, but we do not yet know the chemical make-up of the interstellar matter. This is because we do not understand precisely how the interstellar molecules and dust interact with starlight. This project will create and study models of interstellar matter in the laboratory, and will determine the chemical form of carbon in the interstellar medium. This will have lasting impact on astrophysical models, as well as theories of the origin of life.

PurposeThis project aims to comprehensively understand the interconnected processes by which oceanic heat is circulated towards Antarctica. The risk of rapid ocean warming at the Antarctic margin is profound, with change already detected via deep ocean warming, land-ice melt, and ice shelf collapse. Yet this region remains poorly understood, with only limited observations due to both a harsh environment and a lack of standard data streams. This project will use high-resolution global and regional ocean/sea-ice models to examine mechanisms for rapid warming of Antarctic continental shelf waters via both large'scale drivers and fine'scale processes, including mesoscale eddies, tide-topography interactions, and bottom boundary flows. This work will better constrain future rates of ice melt around Antarctica by providing vital knowledge of the ocean processes, dynamics, and feedbacks relating to warm water intrusion onto the Antarctic continental shelf.

PurposePatients who die suddenly often have mutations in genes that control the electrical activity of heart cells. Family members may be found to have the same mutation. We have difficulty in predicting patients with mutations that are at high risk of dying suddenly and how they should be treated. By studying these mutations in human heart cells, we aim to understand how the mutation interacts with genetic and environmental factors to cause the electrical problem that confers the risk of sudden death.

PurposeInsulin acts as feedback signal from the periphery to the brain to reduce food intake. With obesity, insulin resistance develops, this leads to reduced insulin transport into the brain. The current proposal will establish the transport mechanism that regulates insulin's movement into the brain and determine if brain insulin contributes to the effects of bariatric surgery. Increasing the signal from the periphery into the brain may lead to novel treatments with regard to the obesity epidemic.

PurposeAlcohol use disorders impose significant burden on individual drinkers, their families, and communities. The opioid receptor antagonist naltrexone is one of the few available pharmacotherapies for alcohol use disorders, but its efficacy was incidental to its development, is only modest, and remains poorly understood. This project uses state of the art basic science approaches to identify how naltrexone achieves its therapeutic effects and will identify new ways of improving these.

PurposeSpontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a tear in an artery that supplies blood to the heart. It is a potentially fatal problem that presents as a heart attack or sudden death, affecting relatively young (45-52 yr) women (95 percent of cases) with few risk factors. The cause of SCAD likely has a genetic basis that enhances susceptibility to vessel rupture. Here we propose to investigate the genetics, cell biology and vascular reactivity of SCAD patients to better understand and treat SCAD.
