Ziyu Xiao - School of Physical , Environmental and Mathematical Science, University of New South Wales at Australian Defence Force Academy
This study focused on isolating and determining the magnitude of different forcing mechanisms (such as tides, winds, river discharges and horizontal salinity gradients) responsible for temporal...

Paulina Cetina Heredia - ARC Center for Excellence in Climate System Science, University of New South Wales
  Climate change is projected to increase ocean temperatures and modify circulation patterns, with potential widespread implications on planktonic larvae of marine organisms. Understanding the impact...

Prof Richard Nock - NICTA & Université des Antilles et de la Guyane
The minimization of the logistic loss is a popular approach to batch supervised learning. It turns out that when fitting linear (or kernelized) classifiers, the minimization of the logistic loss is...

Aidan Sims - University of Wollongong
The theory of C*-algebras developed in response to the advent of quantum theory in the early 1900’s, and have since developed into an interesting and active area of mathematics. When studying a...

Maxim Nikurashin - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania
Mesoscale eddies are the most energetic motions in the ocean, but the fate of their energy in the ocean remains poorly understood. Eddy generation in the Southern Ocean tends to be enhanced near...

Assoc/Prof Federico Girosi - University of Western Sydney
The Health Program of Capital Markets CRC (CMCRC) was born by a close partnership between industry partners in the health arena and academic institutions, facilitated by CMCRC infrastructure. The...

Roozbeh Hazrat - University of Western Sydney
In ring theory, in many instances there is a possibility of partitioning the structure of the ring and then rearranging the partitions. These rings are called graded rings. This adds an extra layer...

Prof Ruth J. Williams - University of California, San Diego
This talk will explore entrainment effects of resource sharing in stochastic networks and describe associated mathematical analysis based on elegant fluid and diffusion approximations. Illustrative...

Chief Petty Officer Richard Tolton - Operational METOC Centre, Royal Australian Navy
As technology continues to evolve the modern defence force, the environment remains the one factor that cannot be controlled, merely understood. Nowhere is this truer in the ocean. Beneath the...

Lieutenant Daniel Boettger - Operational METOC Centre, Royal Australian Navy
The spatial structure of the semidiurnal internal tide in the Coral and Tasman Seas is characterised using observational data from expendable bathythermographs, Argo floats and unmanned autonomous...
