Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are manmade chemicals with unique properties.
Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances or PFAS are synthetic organofluorine compounds with unique properties and widespread applications in different industries.
Honours project: Assess the role of native plants in the supply of phosphorus to soils.
Honours project: Evaluate the leaching behaviour of PFAS from contaminated soil stabilised and solidified with cement and graphene.
Honours project: Help reduce the environmental contamination caused by fire-fighting foams.
Honours project: Investigate how soil microbial activity and nutrient availability are influenced by changes in water content or exposure to high temperature.
Honours project: Investigate wheat growth and yield in high-sodium soils using drone-mounted imaging techniques
Honours project: Identify wheat lines from around the world that are tolerant to subsoil challenges such as high salinity and soil pH
Honours project: Examine how wheat yield can be improved by increasing tolerance to different soil constraints
