Wednesday 24
12:00 - SEMINAR - School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Seminar : Biomolecular detection via electrochemistry at liquid-liquid interfaces More Information
The beauty of electrochemistry at liquid-liquid interfaces is that it enables the detection of ions or ionisable species by ion-transfer reactions. As a result, problems associated with the detection of analytes by oxidation/reduction reactions at solid electrodes can be surmounted. These problems (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : ‘Tropical Limnology; Is there such a branch of limnology? If so, what does it represent?’ Website | More Information
The branch of limnology often referred to as ‘Tropical’ limnology is represented by lake studies as diverse as those from alpine, high elevation lakes in Papua New Guinea to athallasic saline lakes located in tropical desert climes.

Thus it can be argued that the internal variability in (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - “Antisense oligomer therapies for neuromuscular disorders” Website | More Information
Sue Fletcher completed her first degree at the University of Zimbabwe (when the country still had a functional education system) and a PhD at UWA. She is a Principal Research Fellow working with Steve Wilton on developing antisense therapies for inherited disorders at the Centre for Neuromuscular (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - SEE Future Fellow Seminar Series: Professor Ryan Lowe : Physical processes in complex coastal reef environments: the dynamics of wave- and tide-dominated systems along Australia More Information
Abstract

Coastal reefs are ubiquitous features of Australia's coastline, yet their hydrodynamics (waves, currents and water levels) are still poorly understood relative to other coastal environments such as beaches. Along Australia’s coast, the large regional-scale gradients in incident (...)

16:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - Wasp Love Got to Do With It? The Evolutionary Implications of Sexual Mimicry in Orchids. : Most flowering plants engage animals to carry out the essential service of pollination. The majority of these plants have evolved flowers that advertise rewards for this service via visual and chemical cues such as petals and scent. There are however a number of species whose false advertisements draw pollinators to rewardless flowers. More Information
My research shows that the chemical mimicry crucial to sexual deception is responsible for reproductive isolation and potentially even speciation. I also show through mating system analysis and studies of wasp behaviour that this strategy is a superbly adaptive solution to the problem flowers face (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Small Ponds: From Arctic to Western Australia : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
Lakes are now considered as significant greenhouse gas (GHG) conduits to the atmosphere. Small and shallow aquatic systems in particular such as ponds and wetlands can represent large GHG emitters as they generally contain high nutrients and organic carbon and have a small volume to area ratio (...)

18:00 - EVENT - SOLD OUT *** Is Australia going west? Will Perth be the capital of Australia by 2050? Website | More Information
A public forum with Professors Geoffrey Blainey AC and Geoffrey Bolton AO, presented by the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and Faculty of Arts.

The discussion will be chaired by renowned Australian journalist and broadcaster, Geraldine Doogue.

Two of Australia’s most (...)

12:00 - SEMINAR - Economics Seminar : Structural Breaks in International Inflation Linkages for OECD Countries More Information
ABSTRACT This paper studies changes in the linkages between domestic inflation for individual OECD countries and corresponding country-specific global inflation series, with the latter calculated as trade-weighted averages of inflation in each country's trading partners. The analysis employs an (...)

13:30 - SEMINAR - Oceans Institute Seminar: DR CHRIS BARNES : Understanding earth/ocean processes: new opportunities and technologies through cabled ocean observatories such as NEPTUNE Canada More Information
Abstract: The oceans, bounded by the atmosphere, lithosphere and shore, and covering 70% of the Earth's surface remain a poorly understood component of the Earth system. The changing climate, ocean circulation and chemistry, and depletion of ocean life are increasing at an alarming rate, largely a (...)

12:00 - SEMINAR - Accomplished Education Researcher Seminar Series : NAPLAN: Driving school improvement or doing the work of the devil? Website | More Information
Controversy continues to surround national student assessment in Australia. However, I argue that testing is neither good nor bad: the devil lies in what people – teachers, school, systems and even parents – do about the tests and the data they generate. I report the experiences of principals (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Pointing at Peak Phosphorus Website | More Information
South-western Australia was a part of Gondwanaland, and some of the most ancient parts of the Earth’ crust can be found here. Other parts of the landscape originated more recently from calcareous marine deposits [1]. Therefore, the soils of Western Australia are amongst the most heavily leached and (...)

14:00 - SEMINAR - Seminar : Complex, tightly coupled and dynamic physical asset systems – why we need statisticians More Information
How can we improve how organisations manage their assets to deliver desired performance? One area of focus is to understand which asset components fail, when, where and how, and what interventions might be put in place to avoid asset and system interruptions and/ or excessive costs. Assets, their (...)

Friday 02
12:00 - SEMINAR - Economics Research Seminar : Three Hits on a Nut Hard to Crack: Evaluating Auction Data from the Field More Information
By design, competitive tenders are used when costs are unknown. But if costs are unknown, how can we evaluate the tenders, when their evaluation involves measuring their cost-efficiency? We identify three approaches: theoretical, empirical and experimental. We first use experimental data to compare (...)
