Industry 4.0 Hub is getting ready to re-open!
Welcome back to another year! What a year 2021 was. Just when we thought things were looking up, we were hit by another lockdown. Although the lockdown meant changing tactics, we ended the year on a high with new collaborations forged, and workshops and visits steaming ahead.
The four of us: Kar-Hau Chong, Anthony Okely, Anne-Maree Parrish and Dylan Cliff
Kar-Hau Chong, a trained nutritionist, became interested in movement behaviours and their impact on children’s health and wellbeing because of his own experiences growing up.
The three of us: Fiona Sheppeard, Kathleen Clapham and Peter Kelly
Fiona Sheppeard, a proud Dunghutti woman and UOW psychology graduate, is examining the importance of place in Indigenous culture, and how it can be incorporated into mental health approaches for First Nations People in Australia.
The virtual reality of healthcare
The idea of immersing ourselves in 3D environments dates all the way back to the stereoscopes that captivated imaginations in the 19th century, but virtual reality (VR) really came alive with the early prototypes of the Oculus Rift at the E3 video game trade show in 2012.
The three of us: Kelly Newell, Katrina Green and Helen Clunas
PhD candidate Helen Clunas is investigating the involvement of the endocannabinoid system in depression under the watchful eye of Supervisors Dr Katrina Green and Associate Professor Kelly Newell from the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health.
The three of us: Faisal Hai, Ashley Ansari and Michael Stapleton
