Soil security is now more important than ever to sustain food production for a growing population.With the impact of climate change, we need to understand how soil erosion will impact future crop production. The outcome of this project can have potential impact towards policy development and erosion mitigation.

Violin Sonata in E flat major by Stan Golestan (1875-1956) in three movements i) Andantino ii) Andante sostenuto iii) Allegro animato. This is the first recording of Golestan's sonata, and is performed by Elizabeth Layton (violin) and Larissa Schneider (piano). Written in 1908, the premiere was given by Georges Enescu, Golestan's mentor, with Maurice Dumesnil at the piano. The sonata represents the intersection of Eastern European and French culture in Paris at the height of the city's artistically fruitful period in the firat decade of the twentieth century. This project is informed by wider research into Enescu's seminal 1921 Bucharest Recital Series.

This is a recording of a live streamed theatre performance. The third in a trilogy about JENNA BRITTEN, a character that was created from research conducted as part of a PhD in Anthropology of performance studies and theatre at the University of Adelaide. The performance was broadcast on 20 July, 2019 from Blackwood South Australia. Riding high on her success, JENNA faces a demon, her self doubt.Will she buckle or double down?Who are we kidding… this is JENNA. Stand back, sit down, just get out of the way!Join us for more good food, good conversation, but this week… it’s questionable company.And a special announcement at the end of the show…SYNOPSISThis week Jenna is joined by two men she regularly engages with plus someone drops in she thought she could trust. But the demands and ‘white noise’ of all the attention get too much. The play changes to an internal one-woman monologue. In a moment of crisis she becomes strong and free; rather than let this moment, this man, intimidate her she will double down and become more defiant with her identity. Returning to the ‘real world’ of the play she acts on her decision and re-establishes her power and authority.‘LUNCH WITH JENNA’ is a first of its kind interactive online theatre project. Integrating live audience in the room and online, this work heralds in new dramaturgical methods to create theatre for an online audience with stories about online life.JENNA BRITTEN is the emancipated middle aged woman online. Hers is the journey of the quiet rage of a suburban mum stuck in the structures of domestic conventional heterosexual predetermination When her husband left her she re-invented herself. Now, she lives her life on her terms and is determined to be a beacon of strength to others.

We need Environmental Engineers to solve the increasingly complex challenges our world is facing - dealing with climate change, water and energy shortages, natural hazards, waste and pollution. However, given that this is a relatively new and emerging area of engineering, it is less well understood than some of the more traditional engineering disciplines (e.g. civil, mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering). In order to provide some insight into what Environmental Engineers do, where they work, what the most exciting things about their work are and what skills they need to do their work, we have asked ten of our Environmental Engineering graduates here at the University of Adelaide to share some of their professional journey. We hope you enjoy their stories and the diversity of things they have done and places they have worked Details of the 15 short videos are as follows: What do Environmental Engineers do: This video presents a collage of the areas in which the 10 graduates have worked, including water supply and sanitation, stormwater harvesting and water sensitive urban design, water recycling and public health, renewable energy, climate change adaptation, environmental management and policy, waste and recycling, the circular economy, geology and soils. Where do Environmental Engineers work: This video presents a collage of the geographical locations in which the 10 graduates have worked, including various areas around Australia and overseas, in both developed and developing contexts. What are the best things about being an Environmental Engineer: This video presents a collage of the most interesting / exciting parts of the work the 10 graduates have done, as well as what they like most about their work. What skills to Environmental Engineers need: This video presents a collage of the skills the 10 graduates have found to be most important during their careers. Additional comments: This video presents a collage of additional comments from the 10 graduates about environmental engineering. Anna Bartel (Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure): soils, mine waste, recycled road materials. Ashley Kingsborough (Department of Environment and Water): water resource and climate policy, climate change adaptation, water sensitive urban design. Brittany Coff (Jacobs - Consulting): water resources, sanitation, water quality Hayley Whitington (Wallbridge Gilbert Aztec - Consulting): stormwater harvesting, recycled water, wastewater treatment, groundwater Jodie Bricout (Loop Circular Economy Platform): waste, recycling, circular economy Nina Allen (Department for Health and Wellbeing): recycled water, public health Peter Golding (KPMG - Management Consulting): energy and natural resources Rowan Steele (SA Water): water supply and operations Tom Forde (Epic Energy): energy Victor Cantone (WSP - Consulting): management, water supply, water treatment

This is the second play in a trilogy about JENNA BRITTEN, a character developed out of a PhD in Anthropology of theatre at the University of Adelaide. The performance was broadcast on 28 April, 2019 STORY SYNOPSISJENNA is joined by 2 of her favourite DMers and a friend with issues about it all. Can it be fun without consequences? Is it emancipation or prostitution? What does it all matter if you feel good about yourself? Join us online and in the conversation as JENNA cooks up a Sunday roast storm… and a little controversy as always R 18+ adult content TWITTER #lunchwithjennaINSATGRAM @lunchwithjenna

The main focus of my research lies in the modelling of soil erosion by wind and water in low rainfall cropping regions using remotely sensed data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The application of remote sensing techniques and modern satellite imagery can facilitate the evaluation of natural processes such as soil erosion over very large regions (e.g. 160,000 km2). Indeed, higher resolution datasets are now available, with high temporal imaging capabilities, ranging from daily to every 30 minutes. This research therefore aims at combining and comparing some of these products and select the best combination to assess soil losses linked to land management and climate conditions. The main outcome of this project is to propose a modelling tool, which can be used for more efficient decision making, to assess the influence of changes in land uses and climate conditions on soil erosion and wind-to-water erosion balance.

Presentation from Citizen Science Australia conference in Adelaide, Feb 2018. Field data collection by Citizen Scientists has been hugely assisted by the rapid development and spread of smart phones as well as apps that make use of the integrated technologies contained in these devices. I will describe some of the experiences (both good and bad) that we have experienced in collaborative development of two Citizen Science apps for Conservation. First is the Koala Counter app used in the Great Koala Count 2 – a two-day Blitz-style population census. Second is the EchidnaCSI app – an observational tool for collecting sightings and samples of echidna. From a developer’s perspective, I will provide details on multi- platform app development as well as collaboration and integration with the national biodiversity repository – the Atlas of Living Australia. Preliminary results regarding user engagement and device differences will be presented along with lessons learned and paths for future research.
