MRI susceptibility-based multi-parametric contrast for vein segmentation

Phil Ward
The purpose of this work was to produce a multi-parametric contrast (MP) that captures the complementary strengths of SWI and QSM, with anatomy-specific information in the form of a vein atlas, to produce a single image.
To undertake this study, vein masks were manually traced using both SWI and QSM images simultaneously. The maps were used to calculate a vein frequency atlas in MNI space, and to calculate priors for SWI, QSM and the atlas,...

Evaluating library programs and services - it's getting better all the time.

& Kaye Lasserre
Data analysts. Professional storytellers. Libraries are using a variety of methods to help demonstrate the value and impact of the programs and services they offer. But it’s still garbage in, garbage out isn’t it? When should we evaluate, what should we evaluate, and how do we get optimal data? With limited resources, how can we do, and evaluate and communicate what we do, in the best possible way? This presentation will review the current status...

Treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) using Cassia obtusifolia Seed Gum Through Coagulation-Flocculation Process ew draft item

Katrina Pui Yee Shak
With the economic upsurge and continuous industrial development of Southeast Asia’s palm oil sector, Malaysia alone produced an estimated 19 million tonnes of crude palm oil (CPO) in 2015. However, CPO production is in tandem with the high generations of both solid waste and effluent. Environmental issues related to the wellbeing of watercourses became a concern due to the discharge of palm oil mill effluent (POME). Governmental and international bodies have acknowledged the need to...

The Struggle over Adat Forest Rights in Upland Banten, Indonesia

Dean Yulindra Affandi
This study investigates local institutional arrangements and the regulation of forest access and control in the wake of the 2013 decision of the Indonesian Constitutional Court, which recognised indigenous peoples’ rights over forest territory. The research focuses on the interactions between adat groups and other actors in that context, with specific attention to the Kasepuhan indigenous communities of West Java. There has been considerable political ecology scholarship about state-society-nature relations in Indonesia; this research contributes...

Production, management and auditory brain perception of Japanese accentuation by non-native speakers of Japanese

Nobuko Yamada
This study reports on Japanese accentuation by non-native speakers (NNSs) of Japanese from the viewpoints of second language acquisition and implicit brain perception. The major focus was on the interlanguage strategies in their production of accentuation, their style-shifting of accentuation in comparison with that of Ibaraki dialect speakers (IBSs) of Japanese, their language management study of accentuation and the automatic brain perception of auditory accent patterns. The study used two major methods. One involved analyses...

An investigation of self concept after traumatic brain injury

Amber Lilyan Kelly
Although there has been abundant previous research into the cognitive, emotional and behavioural sequalae of brain injury, there has been little research into the multidimensional aspects, predictors and improvement over time of an individual’s self concept following brain injury. There is evidence to suggest that self concept is often rated more poorly post injury relative to pre-injury. It has been shown that, in the general population, self concept can be influenced by a range of...

Tim Thorne. A Letter to Egon Kisch. Launceston: Cornford Press, 2007 [Book Review]

David Blencowe
Allow me to set the scene. An author, famed for his journalism and political engagement (including known communist sympathies), is invited by a group of peace activists to come to Melbourne and speak at a congress they are holding. Upon arrival the author is promptly refused entry to Australia, although he has the appropriate visa. He has not technically commit-ted an offence, but the federal government is concerned by what he might say at the...

Synthesis of Structural and Fluorescently Labelled Peptidic Ligands for Optical Imaging of G Protein-Coupled Receptors

Fluorescence imaging is capable of facilitating highly specific and non-invasive investigation of cellular and molecular events both in vitro and in vivo. Fluorescently labelled peptidic ligands are useful in studying the location, distribution, trafficking and functions of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Although GPCRs are popular targets in modern target-oriented drug design, many of them have not been therapeutically exploited. An effective strategy in preparing such ligands is to conjugate fluorophores to high-affinity and selective peptide...

Manipulation in microfluidic systems using surface acoustic waves (SAW)

David John Collins
Lab-on-a-chip microfluidic systems hold substantial promise for a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. By shrinking down conventional laboratory processes and replicating their functions on-chip, the size, cost, required time, and amount of reagent and sample needed can be drastically reduced. However, because these devices operate at length scales orders of magnitude smaller than conventional fluid processes different physical phenomena become dominant, meaning new forces and techniques must be developed to perform them. Acoustic...

Facilitating system transitions in urban water: development of the FaST framework

Briony Cathryn Ferguson
Climate change, resource limitations, population dynamics, ageing infrastructure and evolving community values are putting pressure on urban water systems. There is growing international acceptance that conventional approaches for managing urban water services, characterised by large-scale, centralised and engineered solutions, are inadequate to deliver the outcomes desired by society. Urban water scholars and practitioners are therefore calling for an urgent shift to more water sensitive approaches. This shift is significant, requiring transformative change in how urban...

Stability of stationary solutions to curvature flows

David James Hartley
In this thesis we study the evolution of hypersurfaces under weighted volume preserving curvature flows. Specifically we consider the stability of spheres and finite cylinders as stationary solutions to the flows. The flows are formulated as a partial differential equation for a height function and an existence result is obtained when the height function is small. Through further analysis we prove that the sphere and finite cylinder, provided the radius of the finite cylinder satisfies...

Parameter optimisation for expansion of pluripotent stem cells

Priyanka Gupta
Pluripotent stem cells have the unique properties of extensive replication and ability to differentiate into derivatives of all three germ layers. By virtue of this, they have been deemed to be of immense importance in the fields of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug discovery, disease modeling, etc. The field of stem cell culture has undergone huge advancements over the past few years, with extensive studies being carried out for the various intrinsic and extrinsic parameters...

The ‘Solute-Drag’ effect on migrating interfaces during solid-state phase transformations

Cong Qiu
Steel is the most important alloy for engineering applications. The mechanical properties of steels depend sensitively on their microstructures. These microstructures are usually tailored through a series of thermal and/or mechanical treatments and invariably involve one or more solid-state phase transformations. Control of microstructural evolution requires a detailed understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformations. The kinetics is particularly important since it can be strongly affected by small additions of alloying elements and this...

A study of the training experience of Chinese trainees in a different national context

Jie Liu
While the demand for training that is conducted in cross-cultural settings has increased substantially (Sun & Ross, 2009), most training concepts have been developed with little consideration of national context. Those studies that have considered the impact of national context (Branine, 2005; Sofo, 2007; Sun & Ross, 2009; Yang, Wang, & Drewry, 2009) have not done so in a systematic or comprehensive manner. Accordingly, this research involved an exploratory study focusing on the influence of...

Independent component filter based adaptive texture features applied to content-based image retrieval

Nabeel Mohammed
In this research we concentrate on adaptive texture feature extractors which are automatically extracted from an image collection. We use independent component analysis (ICA) to extract independent component filters (ICF). ICF have previously been shown to include edge filters, having properties similar to the receptive fields of simple cells of the human visual cortex. In this thesis we evaluate the utility of ICF-based collection-specific features in the context of content-based image retrieval (CBIR), with the...

Southeastern Australian agroecosystems: linking carbon to nutrient dynamics & biotic responses

Ee Ling Ng
Soil is one of the most valuable of common goods. It provides essential ecosystem services including food, nutrient and water cycling, waste treatment, carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas regulation to support plant and human life. However, soils around the world are severely degraded with immense costs to human wellbeing. Addition of organic amendments, in the form of natural organic matter, to soil may allow us to simultaneously improve soil carbon, recycle and replenish nutrients, improve...

The committed worker: class, gender and the value of childcare work

Yarrow Andrew
This thesis examines how childcare work is impacted by patterns of value associated with social class and gender. The research contributes knowledge about the lived experiences of workers, and their perceptions of the status and meaning of childcare work. It draws upon a feminist Bourdieusian theoretical framework to show how gendered and classed inequalities reinforce each other within the childcare field in Australia. Data for this study are semi-structured interviews conducted with twenty-three female workers...

Functional connectivity and landscape genetics of Box–Ironbark birds

John Nevil Amos
Habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation are drivers of major declines in biodiversity and species extinctions. The actual causes of species population declines following habitat change are more difficult to discern. In this thesis I attempt to identify, based on published data on mobility and their ecological responses to fragmentation, some of the processes that may have led to patterns of decline for 10 woodland-dependent birds in fragmented woodlands of central Victoria, Australia. Eight species had...
