Our Research Students' Videos
UniSQ PhD student Lauren Huth
Lauren applies whole genome sequencing and genome editing methods to decipher the secrets of hyperparasitic fungi that naturally destroy crop pathogens.
UniSQ PhD student Asfakun Siddika
Asfakun is focusing on beneficial microorganisms in the soil to enhance peanut production.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Aurelie Quade
Aurelie's research focused on her playing an important role in food security to provide corn breeders & growers to control maize common rust.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Buddhika Dahanayaka
Buddhika's study was on fungal pathogens of barley that sometimes hybridize in the field, resulting in a devastating effect on yield.
UniSQ PhD student Carmel Tenson Joseph
Carmel's research will help increase productivity of legumes by focussing on specific bacteria that live in their roots.
UniSQ PhD student Chamika Wijerathna
Chamika's research is trying to make zinc rich rice using nanotechnology.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Chandima Kamaral
Chandima's research focused on identifying key processes that can increase the bioavailable zinc in wheat grain.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Elaine Gough
Elaine's research laid beneath her feet! Elain explains how a healthy plant starts with healthy soil.
UniSQ Master's alumni student Hannah Rostad
Hannah's research focused on battling root-lesion nematodes that invade, feed and reproduce in the roots of chickpeas causing yield losses.
UniSQ PhD student Jason Sheedy
Jason is delivering root-lesion nematode resistant wheat lines for farmers to increase their profitability in a sustainable way.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Kim Khuy Khun
Kim's research focused on developing more sustainable solutions to control insect pests in macadamia production.
UniSQ PhD student Neil Robinson
Neil is investigating new methods to identify wheat lines that yield well, despite being attacked by root-lesion nematodes.
UniSQ PhD student Prue Bottomley
Prue's research will provide a method to rapidly 'clean' experimental paddocks from pathogens in the soil.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Rudrakshi Sharma
Rudrakshi undertook research to identify the disease-causing genes in an important barley infecting fungus.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Sonal Channale
Sonal's research focused on profiling DNA of chickpeas to find the genes conferring resistance to root-lesion nematodes.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Sudhan Shah
Sudhan's research focused on investigating the role of insect killing fungi to control wireworms in sweet potato fields.
UniSQ PhD alumni student Tareq Al-Hidmi
Tareq's research studies focussed on an exciting new way to control diseases in crops using beneficial fungi instead of chemicals.
