The Persistence of Plastic: Environmental Public Art and Micro-Plastic Pollution

Robyn Glade-Wright
Microplastics are ubiquitous environmental contaminants that cause harm to the health and reproductive capacity of living creatures. As humans are the sole source of plastic contamination, changes in human behavior are vital to mitigating micro-plastic contamination. Climate Change Communicators and Environmental Psychologists have found that messages delivered in the form of the Arts and Humanities can play an instrumental role in motivating sustainable behaviour. In this exploratory study, these findings are tested in an Australian...

Modification and targetting of myeloid cell surface antigens (CD33 and CD123) to enhance the therapeutic index of CAR T-cells for acute myeloid leukaemia

Katherine D Cummins
Acute myeloid leukaemia is a blood cancer that affects adults and children, and has very poor therapeutic outcomes, even with the best available treatments including stem cell transplant. CAR T-cells are a novel gene therapy that have revolutionised treatment outcomes in other types of blood cancers. This thesis is dedicated to the development of CAR T-cells for the treatment of acute myeloid leukaemia, with the aim of improving remission rates and increasing the life expectancy...

The western legal response to sorcery in colonial Papua and New Guinea

How the introduced common law in the Australian territories of Papua and New Guinea dealt with accusations of sorcery and with violent crime arising from the belief that people were sorcerers, focusing in particular on the decisions of judges; and comparing the situation with the historical response in England and the contemporary response in other parts of the British Empire, especially in colonial Kenya.

Aerial Grasping by a Quadrotor UAV Based on a Soft Gripper

Despite the potential need for autonomous package delivery by drones, aerial grasping is a challenging problem due to various issues such as the ability to identify an object, navigate towards it, as well as to grasp various objects effectively. The research investigates autonomous grasping by a quadrotor UAV by utilizing vision based tracking on top of GPS-based navigation system and integrating a gripper made of soft material to handle various types of objects. Based on...

Living in history effect in the important AMs_data

Living in history (LiH) is the tendency of a person to frequently use public (i.e., historical) events as temporal landmarks when dating personal memories – termed as the LiH effect. We investigated the LiH effect in autobiographical memories of Bangladeshi older adults who lived through the 1960s Bengali nationalist movement and the 1971 Bangladesh liberation war. Four hundred seventy-six participants (Mean age = 67 years; SD = 6 years), of which 62 were liberation war...

The Socio-Cultural Environment and the Posttraumatic Stress Response: Examining the Associations between Culture, Self-Construal, Social Relationships, Cognitive Appraisal, Coping Strategies and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Megan Hansford
This thesis examines the influence of culture on the relationship between social support and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A review considers the intersections, theoretical, and clinical implications, of integrating these fields. Empirical research found that for highly interdependent people, greater social support reduced the impact of trauma on PTSD symptoms. An indirect relationship between social support and PTSD symptoms, through negative cognitive appraisals and maladaptive coping strategies was found. Through exploring the impact of culture,...

Improving the selectivity of reduced graphene oxide membranes for water and ions separation

Recently, reduced graphene oxide (rGO) membranes have drawn intensive attention for water purification and molecular sieving. However, their performance, particularly the selectivity for water and ions separation, is usually under theoretical value, which needs further improvement. This thesis demonstrates the enhanced water/ion selectivity of rGO membranes by tuning their interlayer nanostructures, introducing strong interactions, and covering non-selective defects as well as forming new selective passages. This work provides new insights into the mass transport mechanism...

Research in the Archival Multiverse

Anne J Gilliland, Sue McKemmish & Andrew J Lau
Within the past 15 years, the field of archival studies around the world has experienced unprecedented growth, both within the academy and the profession, and archival studies graduate education programs today have among the highest enrolments in any information field. During the same period, there has also been unparalleled expansion and innovation in the diversity of methods and theories being applied in archival scholarship.Global in scope, Research in the Archival Multiverse compiles critical and reflective...

The Causes and Consequences of Variation in Metabolic Rate in a Sessile Marine Invertebrate

Metabolic rate determines the rate at which individuals transform resources from the environment into energy and use this energy to live. Within a population, metabolic rate varies among individuals, even after accounting for differences in body size, temperature, age, and sex. Although we are starting to understand the drivers and the maintenance of this variation in metabolic rate over time, its consequences for both individual- and population-level processes remain largely unclear. My work presents novel...

Enhancing Security in Random Wireless Network with the Aid of Friendly Jammers

This thesis investigates the use of friendly jammers against adaptive and active eavesdroppers in wireless networks. The adaptive and active eavesdroppers are capable of both eavesdropping and jamming, thus disrupting the reliability and security of the communications. The friendly jammers jam only the eavesdroppers. The legitimate entities remain unaffected by the friendly jammers. The adaptive eavesdroppers are half-duplex and fail to jam while listening to the source-like signal by the friendly jammers. Again, the active...

Should I Lie to You? A Review of Victoria’s Law regarding Disclosure of Surrogacy Arrangements to the Children They Produce — Is it Compliant with the Convention on the Rights of the Child? (Advance)

Meghan Butterfield
This paper discusses the rights of children born via surrogacy arrangements (‘surrogate children’) in Victoria to be given information about the existence of the surrogate. Relevant provisions of the Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008 (Vic) are analysed to show that donor-conceived children and surrogate children are treated differently when it comes to access to information regarding their heritage and birth which is based on a narrow conceptualisation of genetics and biology. By failing to take...

User-Centered Attestation for Layered and Decentralized Systems

, Ahmad Salehi Shahraki, Carsten Rudolph & Surya Nepal
Virtualization is omnipresent as the backbone ofcloud, edge, and fog computing as well as X-as-a-service infrastructure. It continues to gain increased popularity even in edge or end-user and embedded devices. The need for standards and specifications for secure and trustworthy collaboration becomes a pressing issue. Trusted Computing is considered one of the pillars towards trustworthy systems both in terms of practical security mechanisms and supporting standards. This paper revisits the Trusted Computing tool-set and introduces...
