Research Topic
Professor Rob Davidson
Radiation dose an image quality in medical imaging; Clinical issues in CR/DR. CT and MRI; Image processing in digital radiography
Dr Geoff Currie
Diagnostic imaging, oncology, cardiology, and complementary medicine. Clinical nuclear medicine, molecular imaging, PET/CT, SPECT/CT, radiopharmacy, radiotherapy, pharmacokinetics, ultrasound, MRI, traditional Chinese medicine, western herbal medicine and non human imaging (veterinary scintigraphy and plant physiology).
Dr Allan Ernest
The current research focus is the continuing development of a model involving the discovery of theoretically dark quantum gravitational eigenstates which allow astrophysical dark matter to arise as a natural consequence of cosmic evolution and thus may provide a solution to the dark matter problem in terms of ordinary well-known particles, yet avoid the conflicts that such an ‘all-baryonic’ universe usually has with primordial nucleosynthesis ratios and the cosmic background radiation anisotropy observations. Other general research interests include theoretical astrophysics, cosmology and quantum physics, and theoretical and experimental atomic and molecular physics.
Associate Professor Susan McAlpin
Rural health, rural health workforce, historical methodology and oral history methodology, nutrition and dietetics.
