EMILIE DOTTE

WA

I am an archaeologist specialised in the Pacific islands, currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow with The Australian National University. My research focuses on two main issues: the historiography of archaeology and the study of past human-environment dynamics. I have been working between France and Australia, in both anglophone and francophone Pacific Islands for more than 15 years, hence my interest in French-Australian collaborations for research in the Pacific.

MATHIEU MONGIN

TAS

Mathieu  Mongin’s  research  is  focused  on  BioGeochemical  Cycles  (BGC)  and  marine  ecosystems  in  the ocean. He aims to develop original and innovative re- search  to  understand  biogeochemical  biological  and physical  interactions,  particularly  those  which  affect marine costal environment, including their productivity, carbon export and the response of these processes to  external  perturbation,  climate  variability  climate change, ocean acidification.

JEAN-PHILIPPE RAL

ACT

I'm a Senior Research scientist and Team Leader in the Cereal Quality group at CSIRO Agriculture and Food. I received a PhD from the University of Science and Technologies of Lille in genetic and regulation of starch biosynthesis. I joined the CSIRO in 2005 to work on developing new food products to improve health and nutrition. Lately, my research has expanded to investigate impact of cereal starch degradation on flour quality and energy partitioning between starch, non-starch polysaccharide and oil.
