A Bumpy Road to Perfect Fruits
Indika Fernando (PhD candidate, Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products @University of Tasmania)
Indika is attached to the Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products. His research is focused on understanding the compound forces that create fruit damage in the long road trip between the growing areas and markets, and an experimental approach to help industry deliver perfect bananas.
Tidal energy is coming to Tasmania
Christelle Auguste (PhD candidate, Australian Maritime College @University of Tasmania)
Christelle has a passion for renewable energy and the ocean. Her research at AMC focuses on how tidal turbines could influence sediment transport in highly energetic sites. She spent 17 days at sea to collect data northeast of Tasmania. The aim of her PhD is to assess the sediment dynamics at tidal energy sites in Australia and predict the environmental response to the extraction of energy.
