Towards new biomarkers of seafood quality and provenance
Seafood provides a range of nutrients essential to human health, yet its quality largely depends on local environmental conditions. Furthermore, seafood provenance is often prone to uncertainty due to mislabelling of imported products or illegal fishing practices.

Impact of climate change on juvenile fish: an aquarium experiment
Global warming affects fish through multiple direct effects, however the indirect effects of temperature on fish diet on growth and survival remain unclear.

Ecological benefits of marine parks in Australia
Australian Marine Parks represent a mosaic of sanctuary zones encompassing a wide variety of marine habitats and iconic fish and invertebrate species. However, their net benefit on marine biodiversity varies greatly between regions, ecosystems and the species considered.

Honours project in coffee fermentation
This collaborative project involving the Australian Wine Research Institute would suit a student who is interested in analytical or flavour chemistry, microbiology, and sensory effects of fermentation.
Audio visual room controller refresh
Audio Visual (AV) room controllers in many high utilisation common teaching areas across the University’s three Adelaide campuses (North Terrace, Waite, and Roseworthy) have reached ‘end of life’. This means the chances the equipment will fail increases. The University has taken the opportunity over the summer break to install the new interfaces, to minimise the impacts on teaching activities.
Validating a 2D scanning system for radiation shielding verification in medical imaging departments
Honours project: The aim of this project is to assist in the validation of a radionuclide NaI probe-based method that determines lead thickness and integrity using transmission data from a gamma-ray source (99mTc).

Exploring the core of supernovae using gravitational wave observations
Honours project: this project involves producing simulated populations, injecting them in read data, reconstruct the events with cWB and investigating which distributional test performs better in detecting the population.

Intensity noise suppression of mid-infrared lasers for gravitational wave lasers
Honours project: this project will investigate the intensity fluctuations of these lasers for the first time and design stabilization systems to ensure that these lasers meet the exacting requirements of the latest upgrades to gravitational wave detectors.

Sub quantum noise limited position sensors for gravitational wave detectors
Honours project: in this project you will investigate a new laser-based position detector that will hopefully surpass these limits and allow the low frequency performance of gravitational wave detectors to improved.

Understanding the function of GIPCs in barley root adaptation to salinity
The honours student will profile barley GIPCs using sphingolipidomics. They will also use CRIPSR/Cas9 gene editing to develop a barley line with an altered GIPC glycan headgroup, for comparison to the Arabidopsis mutant.
