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 aims to investigate how typically-developing siblings affect the development of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD involves difficulties with language, executive functions and social understanding. For typically-developing children, growing up with siblings gives an advantage in these cognitive functions. Yet little is known about how having siblings- impacts on cognitive development of children with ASD. The project intends to longitudinally explore the mechanisms of sibling impact in families with and without a child with ASD. The outcomes will deepen understanding of child development, providing an evidence base for effective interventions to increase child competence and aiming ultimately to reduce the social costs of ASD.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate the dynamics of the spread of infectious disease in wildlife, derived from incomplete information about contact networks. Infectious diseases in wildlife are difficult to track and control, because it is not feasible to monitor each individual in a population and know the contact network for a population. The project will create ways to best utilise incomplete observational data of contact networks to develop robust predictions of disease spread and population fate, and to reliably predict the outcomes of management interventions. These robust prediction methods will provide better insights for conservation of Australian wildlife.

PurposeThis project aims to develop an international database of underwater observations to predict the distribution of seafloor biodiversity over the entire Antarctic continental shelf for the present day and to 2100. Antarctic seafloor communities are unique and highly diverse, but their distribution is poorly known because biological data are sparse. These predictions depend on a unique and validated approach to estimate the present and future redistribution of surface primary production to the seafloor, and will enable calculating the amount of atmospheric carbon captured and stored at the seafloor. The maps will be at an unprecedented resolution of around 2 kilometres, and be invaluable tools underpinning policy, management and future science.

PurposeThis project aims to elucidate how the context within which disturbances occur affects food web linkages and how these map to responses in ecosystem function. There is a critical need to test the common assumption in environmental management that high biodiversity makes ecosystems resilient to disturbances. Studies that merely observe biodiversity change after disturbance cannot identify ecological processes connecting high diversity and ecosystem function, making experiments that manipulate identical disturbances in ecosystems with different biodiversity essential. This project will use field experiments that manipulate disturbances in streams replicated in low and high biodiversity regions and across gradients of chronic background stress to show how biodiversity sustains functional ecosystems, and how much diversity can be lost before ecosystems collapse.

PurposeThis project aims to assess how past conditions influence grassland responses to the rising atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide. High CO2 concentrations should stimulate productivity but in grasslands this is rarely realised because other, mostly unknown, factors constrain the response. By synthesising data from past experiments, this project aims to determine exactly why grasslands fail to realise the full productivity benefits of increased CO2 and when this will happen. This should improve predictions of carbon exchange and indicating the best direction for climate change adaptation measures.

PurposeThis project aims to build a model of the signals that regulate root nodule formation, unique root organs formed by some plants that host nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Nitrogen is often limited in the soil and agriculture relies on nitrogen fertiliser. Sustainable sources of plant nutrients are required to ensure food security and minimise the environmental impact of intensive farming. This project will provide fundamental information on why some species can form nitrogen-fixing nodules by examining the role of plant hormones. This will build the knowledge base required to potentially expand this symbiosis into non-legumes, harnessing the huge advantage nodule forming species have in staple crops.

PurposeThis project aims to establish a physical basis for the sensitivity of seismic observations to small changes in the great ice sheets of East Antarctica. These ice sheets are vulnerable to partial collapse or accelerated retreat. Early changes in such ice sheets may take place in the hidden ice-rock interface zone and could be detected by subtle changes in seismic signals that pass through layers of ice, sediments, water and bedrock in this zone. This project will undertake computer simulations, run tests on pre-existing data and examine two case studies, the Aurora and Wilkes Basins. The outcomes of this research will provide a basis for an early warning of ice sheet collapse using seismology, and contribute to future increased resilience to sea level rise.

PurposeOne possible cause of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is narrowing of small blood vessels (capillaries) within the brain, limiting blood flow and energy supply. Pericytes, a cell found only on capillaries, maintain blood flow throughout the brain. In AD, pericytes may die leading to an energy deficit and memory problems. We will test using human brains and animal models whether pericyte loss causes AD and how this is happening. Pericytes could provide a new therapy option for AD.

Yet the policies and practices guiding the industry vary by region and nation. This project will hold three workshops. The workshops aim to assess how crop-livestock management practices impact regional farming performance under different climate change scenarios. Technologies, which will be used to assess the yield variability for diverse forage cropping systems, include existing model'scaling and remote'sensing techniques developed in Argentina (the most advanced biophysical models in the world). These assessments will take place in Argentina, Uruguay, and Australia. The workshops will also strengthen crop-livestock management skills for the three countries in different areas: systems modelling (Australia), remote'sensing system (Argentina), and livestock systems analysis (Uruguay). The project will be conducted collaboratively with livestock industry decision makers who will perform foresighting exercises to explore alternative futures. This will facilitate the development of forage crop regional management and preparation for environmental impacts.

PurposeThe hidden zone at the base of ice sheets includes features such as sediment layers, that may be saturated or not, be frozen or not, and lie over bedrock of variable composition. These features help to control the past and present behaviour of the Antarctic ice sheets and how easily they slide over the rock beneath. We can make better decisions on the future impact of sea level rise if we understand how ice sheets change and whether this will occur gradually or suddenly. At present, predictions of ice sheet behaviour are limited by lack of detailed information on the ice sheet-bedrock interface zone. We address this information deficit through research that uses naturally occurring background seismic signals, recorded by rapidly deployed posthole instruments. We will use these signals to find sub-ice sediment thickness and character at key locations, and demonstrate a novel method that could have wide uptake by other Antarctic nations that work to understand global change.

PurposeThe Indian Ocean contains numerous enigmatic topographic features, and some of the least understood are submarine ridges. Our expedition will focus on William's Ridge, part of Earth's second largest submarine plateau, the Kerguelen Plateau, and on the once adjoining Broken Ridge. We will acquire and analyse rock samples and geophysical data from these ridges to understand how they formed and evolved. Our research will resolve questions about the plate tectonics of the Indian Ocean, determine if William's Ridge is a continental sliver, help understand massive volcanism triggered by mantle hotspots, and potentially contribute to expanding Australia's sovereign undersea territory.

PurposeThe rearrangement of continents over geological timescales can open new connections between the Earth's major oceans. These oceanic seaways can dramatically influence patterns of ocean circulation and are implicated in the onset and expansion of glaciation at both poles. We will use a combination of plate tectonic, solid Earth and oceanographic modelling constrained by marine datasets to deliver a transformational change in understanding how opening seaways controlled the onset of major oceanographic currents, and influenced regional and global changes in climate millions of years ago. Unravelling the influence of seaway opening compared with declining CO2 in the onset of Antarctic and Northern hemisphere glaciation will enable more accurate future climate simulations.

PurposeA key component of ecosystem monitoring programs that aim to support the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem function is sound knowledge of species composition and food web linkages. This information provides a foundation for assessing ecosystem changes and can allow causal links to be clarified (e.g. interactions between marine predators and fishery resources). This project will develop a marine ecosystem monitoring framework using top predator scat DNA to assess species biodiversity in the Subantarctic. By simultaneously studying the diet of a range of predators, we will resolve food web linkages and investigate the use of quantitative models integrating DNA sequence datasets. Through the collection of baseline dietary data and new robust dietary information, we will provide a sound foundation for future monitoring programs to measure changes in species diversity and identify species that may be at risk from fishery engagement.

PurposeThis project aims to provide scientific information on the ecological impacts of climate change and other drivers on key components of the Southern Ocean ecosystem to facilitate evidence-based monitoring, management and policy decisions. We will use new statistical methods in ecology and combine them with existing, long-term datasets of demersal fish on the Kerguelen Plateau and zooplankton in East Antarctica. We will provide maps and new, quantitative knowledge on if, how (which species) and why (in response to which factors) these key Southern Ocean assemblages have changed in recent years and what they are likely to look like in the future. These maps will be combined with simulations to provide advice on zooplankton monitoring to track changes and measure the performance of spatial management into the future. This will significantly advance the scientific information available for planning and evaluating policy and management actions.

PurposeMany Antarctic stations are built in coastal areas of high conservation significance, which can be compromised by a station's operations. At Casey, for example, there are earthworks, heavy machinery and logistical activities operating alongside some of the most well-developed and extensive plant communities on continental Antarctica. Legal obligations derived from the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty mean that conservation planning should be a key consideration of current and proposed Antarctic station operational projects. However, knowledge of what values need protecting and where is often lacking or unavailable to the relevant groups that plan operational activities. This project aims to develop a systematic conservation planning approach to provide usable information for station operators. A test case of Casey includes collating data on natural values, known human presence, risks, effects, and impacts, to provide operators with conservation tools.

PurposeThe Earth beneath Antarctica is not cold and static but highly dynamic. Its changing shape results from past and present changes in the amount of ice resting on it as well as forces internal to the Earth. These are very poorly understood in Antarctica, and in East Antarctica in particular. Understanding these processes requires a detailed understanding of the interior properties of the Earth and the history of ice loading changes from 20,000 years before present until today. Alternatively, by measuring present-day deformation using GPS, and inferring the properties of the Earth from seismology, we can obtain new information on past and present ice loading changes. This project will lengthen existing East Antarctic GPS and seismic records to determine deformation patterns, and their changes over time, and to estimate Earth's interior properties. These remain necessary for understanding Antarctica's contribution to past and present sea level change from altimetry and space gravimetry.

PurposeThe Balleny Plume, which is postulated to be located under Antarctica today, is thought to have produced a ~1200 km chain of volcanoes to the east of Tasmania, and may have acted as a driver for the opening of the Tasman Sea and separation of Australia and Antarctica. We aim to collect rock samples from this chain to assess whether it is an age-progressive track and explore its spatial and geochemical associations with other volcanism in the area. Our new data will reveal the timing of movement and separation of Australia, Antarctica and Zealandia during times of major change in the plate-mantle system, such as during global plate reorganisation events, as well times of dramatic climatic shifts, such as oceanographic changes associated with the opening of the Tasman Gateway and glaciation of Antarctica.

PurposeMantle plumes are cylinders of buoyant hot rock that rise from the deep Earth. Active since ~135 million years ago, the Kerguelen plume is thought to be the magma source of Australia's active hot spot volcanoes, Heard and McDonald islands on the central Kerguelen Plateau in the Southern Ocean. This project will test controversial models of plume dynamics to explain the complex spatial, temporal, petrological, and geochemical patterns of central Kerguelen Plateau volcanism in the last 30 million years. The outcomes will be new insights into the dynamics and timescales of plume volcanism with global implications for both active and ancient mantle plumes.

PurposeThe project aims to explore a unique niche in exoplanet detection: searches for cold planets down to Earth mass, including ice giants and rogue free-floating planets. Infrared cameras and adaptive optics on large telescopes will be used to make accurate measurements of cold planets in diverse galactic environments. These are significant because they are completely different from most known exoplanets, being far from their host stars and unique probes of planet formation theory. Expected outcomes are a greatly improved understanding of planet formation, and improved techniques for cold planet detection with gravitational microlensing.

PurposeThe aim is to discover if rising levels of oceanic carbon dioxide will offset negative effects of ocean warming on seaweeds, using targeted physiological experiments together with novel molecular diagnostics. Seaweeds create habitats and food for shellfish and fish, and play a crucial role in long term ‘blue carbon' storage. They are predicted to benefit from future carbon dioxide enrichment, but to test this forecast requires a detailed understanding of the mechanisms used by seaweeds to acquire dissolved inorganic carbon. The expected outcome is robust predictions of how the primary productivity of coastal waters will respond to future high carbon dioxide conditions, enabling human adaptation to environmental change.

PurposeSex-determination controls the largest variation within animals—the division into males and females. While the different systems of sex-determination—involving genetic or environmental control—are fairly well understood, transitions between these systems remain enigmatic in evolutionary biology. This project aims to address this gap by revealing the molecular change required to transition between systems, using one of only two known lizard species exhibiting both genetic and temperature control of sex.

PurposeThis project aims to identify genes that control plant responses to low air humidity, which enhance drought survival by restricting water loss. Most plant water loss occurs through pores called stomata. This project expects to identify the genes that close stomata within minutes of decreased humidity by determining the molecular changes that occur over this timeframe and testing candidate genes for a critical role. Diverse land plant models will be examined to ensure broad applicability of results. A major expected outcome is new knowledge of genes that minimise plant water loss, which would ultimately benefit plant-based industries through new targets for breeding improved, drought-adapted varieties for food security in a drying climate.

PurposeThis project will test in the laboratory and the field, when and where ocean warming will exceed the thermal limits of marine species and why certain species show greater sensitivity to warming temperatures than others. This project expects to generate robust estimates about how temperature sensitivity varies between populations across species' ranges and identify the ecological implications for habitat loss in areas where thermal limits differ between key species. Expected outcomes include an enhanced capacity to detect when and where vulnerability hotspots will emerge that could jeopardise the immense social, ecological, and economic value of Australia's temperate reefs, next to which 70% of Australians live, along 8,000 km of coastline.

PurposeThis project will evaluate how the Antarctica's great thaw may fertilise the Southern Ocean with iron and help mitigate carbon dioxide emissions now and in the future. The Southern Ocean is anaemic, meaning that the iron levels are too low to sustain photosynthesis, a pathway by which the oceans transform carbon dioxide into carbon-rich sediments. There is evidence that melting ice may supply substantial amount of iron, capable of boosting marine life and removing carbon dioxide. As polar regions show the earliest and most severe impacts of anthropogenic activity, studying ice-ocean interactions is central to supporting national and international policy development that can effectively limit the worst impacts of climate change globally.

PurposeIntensified forestry to meet rising demand for timber is placing biodiversity at risk. The aim of this project is to develop and field-test a novel framework to reconcile forest conservation with production. The project seeks to resolve whether intensive forestry coupled with a large reserve network produces better biodiversity outcomes than less intensive forestry with fewer reserves. I will integrate abundances of plant and animal species with forest industry timber yield data in a uniquely suited landscape. Survey results will be synthesised with global data on biodiversity responses to forestry. This research will benefit the forest industry by providing guidelines that improve conservation outcomes while maintaining timber yield.

PurposeThis project aims to remove the need for energy storage in micro-grids via adoption of synthetic storage. Micro-grids encounter high renewable energy penetrations early, given their small size. Typically, micro-grid variability is managed with technologies such as energy storage. Synthetic storage involves replacing fixed speed diesel assets with variable speed diesel technology. This project offers a cost-effective way to improve renewable penetration and reduce diesel fuel consumption in micro-grids by removing the need for expensive energy storage. The expected project outcomes include reductions in cost and complexity for high renewable energy penetration micro-grids, reduced emissions and improved micro-grid reliability.
