Victoria A. Farrar-Myers Distinguished Chair

Home InstitutionThe University of Texas - Arlington
Host InstitutionFlinders University
Award NameFulbright-Flinders University Distinguished Chair in American Political Science (sponsored by Flinders University)
DisciplinePolitical Science
Award Year2013

“The 21st Century world is rife with challenges ranging from globalization, a world fiscal crisis, and problems and issues that defy traditional boundaries. Further, as a world of nations, we are confronted with the necessity to cross-collaborate and create opportunities to foster innovation and growth.”

Professor Victoria A. Farrar-Myers, Professor in Political Science and Distinguished Teaching Professor with The University of Texas-Arlington is the 2013/14 Fulbright Flinders University Distinguished Chair. Through her Fulbright, Victoria will come to Flinders University in Adelaide to undertake research into executive foreign policymaking with a particular emphasis within the Pacific Rim.

“I will address the overall question of how do the constraints posed by past commitments, institutional structures, and current political dynamics dictating internal political contexts affect the development and pursuit of foreign policy by the respective heads of government within Australia and the United States, both as individuals and institutional actors,” Victoria said.

“My research project will contain several interrelated aspects. The primary theme of my research will be a comparative focus on the power, authority, and constraints of the U.S. president and Australian prime minister in foreign relations. I will explore this theme from both intra-state (i.e., within country) and inter-state (i.e., external relations) perspectives.”

“Perhaps most importantly, and an aspect about which I am most excited, this research will enable me to explore these issues within the context of U.S. and Australian policy with and involving China; thus, allowing me to take advantage of and contribute to Flinders University’s recently created Centre for United States and Asia Policy Studies.”

Victoria has a BS in Political Science and Public Administration from Russell Sage College; an MA in Political Science from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; and a PhD in Political Science from State University of New York at Albany. She has won awards and prizes including the Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award, The University of Texas System; being a National Finalist, Citizen Service Before Self Honors, The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation; and an American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship. Her interests include the American presidency, executive politics and foreign policy, and institutional development.

Murray Loew Distinguished Chair

Home InstitutionGeorge Washington University
Host InstitutionAustralian Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO)
Award NameDistinguished Chair in Advanced Science and Technology (sponsored by the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation – DSTO)
DisciplineEngineering
Award Year2013

“In military applications, robotics, security, surveillance, and mobile systems, it is essential to have the ability to detect, track, and identify moving objects over a great distance to provide time sufficient for the most appropriate response.”

Professor Murray Loew, Professor with the School of Engineering and Applied Science, at George Washington University, is the inaugural recipient of the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Advanced Science and Technology, sponsored by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO). Through his Fulbright, Murray will come to the DSTO laboratories in Adelaide Australia for five months to work on the tracking of moving objects.

“This is important for a range of activities including surveillance (of borders, around a base, of shorelines), missile defence, and navigation and collision avoidance (of aircraft, of robots and their end-effectors),” Murray said.

Murray said that because of its ability to observe objects rapidly and at large distances, long-range ground-surveillance radar is used in many of the applications noted above. However radar surveillance of moving objects on and near the ground generates many false alarms. For this reason he will look at fusing imagery (infrared and visible) with radar data to improve the tracking and detection of moving targets in a surveillance setting

“A variety of sensors could be used in support of those tasks, and often it is the case that combining the outputs of multiple sensors will yield more accurate and timely information than can be provided by any single sensor.”

Murray has a BS in electrical engineering from Drexel Institute of Technology (now Drexel University); and an MS and PhD from Purdue University. At GW, he teaches courses in pattern recognition, image analysis, and computer vision. His accomplishments include the development of new techniques to measure the clinical utility of medical-image registration methods in the absence of ground-truth (including recent applications to the analysis of binder materials used in paintings); development and validation of machine-independent algorithms for detecting early bladder cancer in optical coherence tomography imaging; contributing to new theory for quantifying the uncertainty in receiver operating characteristic measurements of classifier performance (important for formal comparisons of classifiers); and he is a Fellow, Inst. of Electrical and Electronics Engrs., and of American Inst. Med. and Biol. Engrg. His interests include photography, music, and travel.

The prestigious Fulbright program is the largest educational scholarship of its kind, created by U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright and the U.S. Government in 1946. Aimed at promoting mutual understanding through educational exchange, it operates between the U.S. and 155 countries. In Australia, the scholarships are funded by the Australian and U.S. Governments and corporate partners and administered by the Australian-American Fulbright Commission in Canberra.

Michael Douglas Senior Scholars

Home InstitutionCharles Darwin University
Host InstitutionUniversity of Maryland and Oregon State University
Award NameNorthern Territory State Senior Scholarship
DisciplineRiver and coastal management
Award Year2012

“Rivers are among the most threatened ecosystems on the planet and most have suffered serious environmental degradation. Northern Australia, however, contains the largest network of healthy river systems in the world and maintaining their integrity is critical for the region’s future.”

Professor Michael Douglas, Director of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge Research Hub at Charles Darwin, is one of two winners of the Fulbright Northern Territory Scholarship, sponsored by the NT Government, Charles Darwin University and Blackboard (Australia).

Through this Fulbright project, Michael will collaborate with world-leading researchers at the University of Maryland and Oregon State University to establish a shared understanding of integrated catchment management between Australia and U.S. and develop a new research framework for river and coastal management in northern Australia.

Following his return, Michael will spend the next three years applying this framework to help solve critical threats to Australia’s tropical rivers and coasts.

“There are many threats to the Northern Australian river systems—weeds and introduced animals, such as cane toads, wild pigs, cattle and water buffalo continue to spread and degrade the natural systems. More intensive cattle grazing places greater pressure on waterholes and inappropriate fire regimes threaten the fragile riparian forests that stabilise the river banks. Mining has already had serious negative impacts in a few river systems but vast areas of the region are under active exploration and plans are well advanced for major gas processing plants on the Kimberley coast and in the estuaries of Darwin harbour,” Michael said.

Michael said that the best available scientific research is necessary to inform future development decisions for the area. To this end he has spent the last 5 years leading a highly successful multidisciplinary research program called TRaCK (the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge) Research hub which was designed to meet this challenge. TRaCK brings together 80 researchers with local communities, governments and industries. In the U.S. Michael will work with two groups of researchers in the USA at University of Maryland and Oregon State University who have skills not available in Australia to extend this work.

Michael has a BSc in biological sciences and a PhD in environmental sciences from Monash University. He has won awards and prizes including the Charles Darwin University Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Team Research and a Biosecure Australia Award for environmental research. . He also has extensive teaching experience and was part of a team which won a National Carrick Award for Australian University Teaching. In his spare time he is involved in activities that raise the profile of catchment management in community.

For his Fulbright Senior Scholarship, Clinton will work in the Media Lab of the City College of New York. His project will investigate two critical components of large-scale video surveillance systems across technical and policy fronts. First, by working with one of the world leaders in video surveillance the project will advance a key capability missing from current state-of-the-art systems – the ability to search for people of interest. Second, by assessing the impacts, drivers, and impediments of video analytics in one of the busiest and most dynamic cities in the world, this project will explore the practical and policy reasons for the lack of adoption of large-scale video analytic systems for monitoring our cities to inform future research endeavours. During this project, Clinton will also work with some of the leading policing and defence organisations that deploy this technology and have a strong interest in its advancement.

Paul Secunda Senior Scholars

Home InstitutionMarquette University
Host InstitutionThe University of Melbourne
Award NameFulbright Senior Scholarship
DisciplineLaw
Award Year2015

Over the last decade, Professor Secunda has devoted his scholarly endeavours to a study of how to use employer-based retirement legal schemes to ensure that increasingly aging populations throughout the world have adequate retirement income. In addition to recently being named the chairman of the ERISA (employee benefits) Advisory Council to the United States Department of Labor, to provide reports and recommendations to the U.S. government on workplace retirement and welfare plan issues, Professor Secunda has been recently elected to the U.S. National Academy of Social Insurance in recognition of his innovative work on international and comparative employee benefits law.

With the assistance of the Senior Fulbright Scholarship Award, Professor Secunda is researching, on a comparative legal basis, the Australian Superannuation Guarantee. Super, as it is called in Australia, is considered one of the most successful workplace retirement programs in the world, recently ranked #2 on the basis of sustainability, efficiency, and adequacy. At the invitation of the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law (CELRL) at Melbourne Law School, Professor Secunda is spending six months in 2015 interviewing numerous government officials, Super fund executives and managers, union officers, legal and financial service practitioners, Super peak bodies, and academics, across the country to determine what policy and legal lessons can be gleaned from Super for the United States’ 401(k) workplace retirement scheme. He will also teach a Masters level class on comparative superannuation law at the Melbourne Law School in October 2015.

Professor Secunda plans to present a number of seminars on his Super research at: numerous Australian universities (including at Business, Law, and finance and economics departments), various law firms, and Super funds across the country.  In addition to exploring his home city of Melbourne, Professor Secunda is looking forward to his travels to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, and Tasmania in furtherance of his Fulbright research.  His plan is to present the findings of his workplace pension research to the United States Department of Labor on his return in January of 2016.Professor Secunda also hopes to use his newly-obtained comparative perspective to develop innovative courses for his law students on his return to North America.

Mike Webster Senior Scholars

Home InstitutionCornell University
Host InstitutionThe University of Melbourne
Award NameFulbright Senior Scholarship
DisciplineOrnithology
Award Year2015

Professor Webster’s research focuses on the social behavior of birds from an evolutionary perspective, particularly focusing on the evolutionary factors that shape sexual signals, like plumage color and song in birds, and how those signals in turn affect the process of speciation. Research in Webster’s lab is integrative and combines intensive fieldwork with genetic and hormonal analyses in the lab, all aimed at unlocking the secret lives of birds and other taxa. Most of this work focuses on New World Warblers and Australian Fairy-wrens, but also includes work on other species as well.

Webster received his B.S. degree from the University of California at San Diego, and his Ph.D. from Cornell University. After a Postdoctoral Position at the University of Chicago, Webster moved to academic appointments at SUNY Buffalo and Washington State University. Currently, he is the Robert G. Engel Professor of Ornithology in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University. Webster is also Director of the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which is the world’s oldest and largest collection of “biodiversity media” (i.e., audio and video recordings of animals in the wild).

Mike has two goals for his period as a Fulbright Scholar in Australia. The first is to establish collaborative research relationships with several Australian researchers to develop a large, multi-investigator comparative study of Australian fairy-wrens. The second is to establish a strong and mutually beneficial working relationship between the Macaulay Library and the Australian National Wildlife Collection, aimed primarily at building a comprehensive collection of audio/video recordings capturing the behavior of Australian animals.

Sharon Davis Professional Scholars

Home InstitutionMonash
Host InstitutionHarvard University
Award Name2011 Fulbright Professional Scholarship
DisciplineEngineering
Award Year2011

“The Murray-Darling Basin is an important and iconic river basin, at both the national and international scale. It covers around 1 million square kilometers and produces approximately 40 per cent of Australia’s agricultural production. The Basin system also contains more than 30,000 wetlands and many ecological systems of international significance including 16 Ramsar Convention listed sites.”

Dr Sharon Davis, General Manager with the Murray-Darling Basin Authority will have the opportunity to contribute to the Harvard Water Initiative at Harvard University through a Fulbright Professional Scholarship.

Sharon’s research will share the Australian experience of setting sustainable water resource diversion limits, identify potential opportunities for future development, and evaluate the applicability of the approach used in the Murray-Darling Basin to other countries. “Australia is a recognised international leader in water resource management and has a significant history in water reform,” Sharon said. “Over the last 20 years Australia has made major steps forward in water resource management, most recently through the Commonwealth Water Act 2007, which requires sustainable water diversion limits to be set across the Murray-Darling Basin.” 

“The project is designed to contribute to advances in water resource management in Australia and internationally.” Sharon has a BA (Hons) (Physical Geography) Monash University and a PhD (Civ. Eng.) (Hydrology), Monash University. She received the Murray-Darling Basin Commission Leadership Award; is currently the leader of the Environmental Planning Team within the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, and was a Member of the Murray-Darling Basin Reform Taskforce. She represented the Murray-Darling Basin Commission on the Mekong River Commission/Murray-Darling Basin Commission Strategic Liaison Partnership Mission in 2007.

In her spare time she enjoys skiing, bushwalking and trekking, adventure racing, triathlons, good coffee and travel. The prestigious Fulbright program is the largest educational scholarship of its kind, created by U.S. Senator J.

Sue Baker Postdoctoral Scholars

Home InstitutionUniversity of Tasmania
Host InstitutionWashington State Department of Natural Resources
Award NamePostdoctoral Scholarship
DisciplineForestry
Award Year2012

“Development of ecologically sustainable forestry practices is essential to achieving a balance between environmental, social and economic values.”

Dr Sue Baker, a research fellow at the University of Tasmania, has won a Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholarship to spend three and a half months working with the University of Washington and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. Through her Fulbright, Sue will evaluate the benefits of retention forestry practices for biodiversity conservation.

The practice of leaving unlogged patches within coupes (retention forestry) is increasingly used globally to balance environmental, social and economic values. Although new in Australia, these practices were developed twenty years ago in western USA.

Sue’s project will critically assess the role of retained patches in facilitating re-establishment of mature-forest biodiversity in logged areas.

“The retention forestry approach was developed in Western North America based on insights into species recovery following the massive volcanic eruption of Mt St Helens in 1980. Contrary to traditional theory emphasising immigration of organisms from outside of the affected landscape, diverse refuges within the blast area allowed some organisms to survive volcanic impacts,” Sue said.

“Through my research in the U.S., I will test the hypotheses that re-establishment of harvested areas by mature-forest affiliated plants and invertebrates will be greater adjacent to intact edges than small isolated aggregates, and will be more pronounced at the older sites. Biodiversity responses should manifest as differences in both relative abundance and the distance into harvested areas that species extend.”

By applying the same methodology for sampling beetles and plants in USA as in Australia, Susan will extend investigation of biodiversity effects through a much longer time series than possible for local studies. The project will increase ecological-sustainability of forest harvesting practices.

Sue has a BSc (Hons 1) and a PhD from the University of Tasmania. She also has a Bachelor of Forest Science, University of Melbourne and Spanish Certificate Level III, from TAFE Tasmania. She has won awards including Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship Industry and a Gottstein Trust Fellowship at the World Forest Institute, Portland, Oregon. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, diving and learning about the natural history and culture of places she visits.

Emmet Cleary Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionCalifornia Institute of Technology
Host InstitutionThe University of Adelaide
Award NamePostgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineChemical Engineering
Award Year2012

“Current sources and means of producing energy make it difficult to meet the world’s growing energy needs. Projections indicate that this demand will continue to increase.”

Mr Emmet Cleary, a recent graduate in Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, has won a Fulbright Scholarship to come to the University of Adelaide for eleven months. Through his Fulbright Emmet will examine a cleaner way to generate energy and will apply it to solid fuels.

“Scientists have made tremendous strides in energy research, finding new and more efficient ways of harvesting energy to meet the increasing demand. Combustion processes are currently used to meet most of our energy needs, and apply broadly to many demand sectors: transportation, industry, commercial and residential buildings, and electricity generation. Although combustion technology is so widely used, it is far from perfect; there is still much room for improvement,” Emmet said.

Emmet’s research will focus on a technique that burns fuels with lower emissions of pollutants, known as moderate or intense low-oxygen dilution (MILD) combustion. His proposed project will study the MILD combustion regime of pulverized coal, an industrially important solid fuel, at the Centre for Energy Technology (CET) at the University of Adelaide.

According to Emmet, while previous studies with this technique have focused on natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas, it is of crucial importance to expand these studies to include solid fuels.

“This burner has been used for studies with sawdust, suggesting the potential for expansion to a broad range of solid fuels. As solid fuels make up the largest fraction of fossil fuels burned on an industrial scale, a better understanding of the MILD combustion of solid fuels is essential to realize the environmental benefits of this unique regime.”

In addition to his BS, Emmet has won a number of undergraduate fellowships. He has represented the U.S. in Irish Dancing, and is also an accomplished pianist.

 

 

Molly Jones Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionGeorgetown University
Host InstitutionAustralian National University
Award NameFulbright-Anne Wexler Masters in Public Policy Scholarship
DisciplinePublic Policy
Award Year2014

Molly Jones is the 2014 American Anne Wexler Scholar. She received her undergraduate degree in Science, Technology, and International Affairs from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. In 2014, she will complete a Master of Public Policy at the Australian National University’s Crawford School of Public Policy. She will focus on shared political interests and cooperation between the US and Australia in trade, security, and development; with a particular focus on environmental security as a priority issue in the Asia Pacific.

Both the US and Australia are pursuing increased involvement and leadership in the Asia Pacific. Within the Obama administration, the US has pivoted, or rebalanced, its foreign policy to the Asia Pacific. To date, this effort has been primarily through the sectors of security and trade. Despite these efforts, US policymakers agree that the rebalance needs to include a greater number of Asia Pacific nations and address a greater breadth of policies beyond security and trade. Complementary to this, Australia is also shifting its foreign policy to be more focused on the Asia Pacific.

A critical factor for stability and continued growth in the Asia Pacific is its environmental security. Finite natural resources, energy supply and geopolitics, climate change, and environmental degradation all pose a serious threat to the growth and stability of the region. Many of these environmental conditions are considered threat multipliers, which are conditions that lead to instability and make conflict over other issues more likely to erupt. Other environmental conditions prevent growth and prosperity. Policymakers and the business community can work together to improve the environmental outlook of the region, promote growth, and ensure stability and prosperity.

“One of my primary goals is to promote natural resource security in the Asia Pacific. The US and Australia have the potential to be great partners in this endeavor – strengthening both the Asia Pacific region as well as their diplomatic and economic ties. Through the Anne Wexler Scholarship, I will develop the skills to make a meaningful contribution to the US-Australian collaboration in this area.”

Matthew McCrary Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionThe University of Michigan
Host InstitutionThe University of Sydney
Award NamePostgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineMusic
Award Year2013

“Sydney, specifically, has the longest standing tradition in the field of Performing Arts Medicine (PAM), beginning with the opening of the Sydney Musician’s Clinic in 1979, the world’s first medical clinic devoted entirely to the needs of musicians.”

Mr James Matthew “Matt” McCrary, a recent exercise science and drumset performance graduate from the University of Michigan, has won a Fulbright Scholarship to complete a 1-year Master’s by Research project at the University of Sydney Medical School’s Elite Music Performance Laboratory. He will spearhead a project investigating the utility of core muscle activation in preventing upper extremity pain and injury in instrumental musicians.

“Instrumental musicians, as a result of the duration, repetition, and tension involved in their practice and performance, undergo athlete-level physical stress on a daily basis,” Matt said.

“For a variety of reasons, however, athlete-level care for the physical needs of musicians is uncommon, despite substantial published research on the prevalence of upper extremity pain in musicians of varied ages, nationalities, and instruments.

This disconnect forms the basis of my hypothesis: since musicians and elite athletes place comparable levels of strain on their bodies, activity-specific physical preparations for musicians (“warm-ups”) should yield similar preventative benefits to those of athletes.”

Matt has a B.S. in Kinesiology and a B.F.A. in Jazz Studies from the University of Michigan, where he was awarded the Edwin & Mary Meader Jazz Scholarship, University Honors, and the distinctions of James B. Angell Scholar and Lloyd Hall Scholar. In the year since his graduation, Matt has gained valuable, relevant experience for his Fulbright project through full-time work as both a musician at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and a researcher at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. His interests outside of music and medicine include playing and watching sports (especially (soccer/”football”), and fitness/nutrition.

Melanie Poole Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionCARE Australia
Host InstitutionNew York University
Award NameAnne Wexler Australian-American Studies Scholar in Public Policy (sponsored by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education)
DisciplinePublic Policy
Award Year2013

“If Australia was to act with a compassion and sense of global responsibility that matched the enormous resources available to us, we could make a much more powerful contribution to alleviating poverty, promoting human rights and building a world where more people really do have a ‘fair go’.”

Ms Melanie Poole, Parliamentary Advocacy Co-ordinator, with CARE Australia will spend two years in the United States to undertake a Masters in Public Policy. Melanie’s work is in the area of humanitarian advocacy and global development, with a strong focus on promoting the rights of women and girls.

“Australia is one of the most prosperous, peaceful, democratic nations in the world. We are a good global citizen that makes many contributions through our aid and diplomacy programs, which we can be proud of, but there is more that we can do,” Melanie said.

By studying public policy in the U.S., Melanie will learn how to engage a broader range of sectors in the promotion of human rights and global citizenship. Her aim is to be able to help to make Australia’s aid program stronger and more gender focused through steering and shaping the national agenda for international aid and diplomacy.

“Completing this Masters will give me the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of how government operates, including the impact of market forces, society, culture and the media in shaping policies. It is a program explicitly focused on producing strong leaders, with core required courses including strategic and financial management, politics and advocacy, ethics, leadership and quantitative analysis. I will specialise in global development and on learning to design and advocate for polices that promote human rights and gender equality.”

Melanie will also intensively study the political, social and economic dynamics that shape aid and humanitarian policy decisions, and how social attitudes are constructed and transformed.

Melanie has a BA (Political Science) and LLB (Honours) from the Australian National University; a training certificate in Humanitarian advocacy from Fordham University (New York); and a Certificate in Health and Human Rights from the United Nations University for Peace. She has volunteered with the Kenyan Voluntary Development Association, been a Fieldwork Team Leader, Aga Khan Education Services, Gilgit, Pakistan and Australian Youth Ambassador to the United Nations. Her interests include political theory and processes, community organising, the role of education in shaping national values and issues of gender and sexuality. She is especially passionate about reproductive and LGBTIQ rights.

In 2009, the Australian Government announced the establishment of a prestigious annual scholarship program to recognise the many contributions by Mrs Anne Wexler for her role in fostering Australian-American relations. She was made an Honorary Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) by the Australian Government for her work on the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement and the Australian-American Leadership Dialogue.

The Anne Wexler Scholarships are part of the Australian Government’s Australia Awards Program and are funded through the Department of Industry Innovation Science, Research and Tertiary Education and administered by the Australian-American Fulbright Commission. The Scholarships are awarded for up to two years and are valued at up to A$140,000 each. Two Wexler Scholarships are awarded annually, one for an Australian citizen to go to the U.S. and one for an American (US) citizen to come to Australia.
