Award NameSenior Scholarship
DisciplineEconomy
Award Year2012

“In this world of plenty, almost half of the world’s seven billion people live on two US dollars a day or less. Between one third and one half suffer under-nutrition due to insufficient intake of calories, protein or critical micronutrients such as vitamin A, iodine and iron.”

Professor Christopher Barrett, from the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University, has won a 2012 Fulbright Senior Scholarship. Through his Fulbright, Christopher will spend six months at Monash University in Melbourne undertaking research into the effects of global food markets on poverty and food insecurity in the world.

“My research explores why such unnecessary injustice continues to disfigure a rich, technologically advanced world, and what individuals and institutions can do to reduce avoidable human suffering,” Chris said.

Chris’ research program aims to establish how poor households’ dependence on food markets is evolving. His research will include looking at the effects of new contract farming arrangements or humanitarian agency supply chains, and how changing food prices and food price risk and international market integration are co-evolving in their impacts on poor households. He will also examine what policies or financial instruments might be appropriate to help cushion any adverse effects of observed changes.

“Through the research program this Fulbright Scholarship will launch, I hope to shed light on poor households’ complex relations with global food markets so as to improve and inform ongoing policy debates in this arena,” Chris said.

This project will build on existing work he has already undertaken, and will establish research collaborations in Australia that he hopes will continue well beyond his Fulbright Scholarship.

Chris has an A.B., History, Princeton University; an M.Sc., Development Economics, University of Oxford, on a previous Fulbright Scholarship; and a dual PhD in Agricultural Economics and Economics with certificate in African Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is also the Director of the Stimulating Agricultural and Rural Transformation (StART) Initiative , Cornell International Institute for Food, Agriculture and Development. He has also published extensively. His research interests include poverty, food insecurity, economic policy and the structural transformation of low-income societies, issues of individual and market behavior under risk and uncertainty, and the interrelationship between poverty, food security and environmental stress in developing areas.

 

Vinay Rane Professional Scholars

Home InstitutionRoyal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital
Host InstitutionNew York State University
Award NameProfessional Scholarship
DisciplinePublic/Global Health (Obstetric Medicine)
Award Year2014

“Medicine has revealed to me just how similar all of us who occupy this small planet actually are.”

Dr Vinay S. Rane is a forensic physician, lawyer and obstetric doctor based in Queensland. He will study at the New York Department of Health, New York State University at Albany and the School of Public Health at Harvard University in 2014-15.

He will investigate the provision of obstetric services to disadvantaged women’s groups. He has completed concurrent degrees in medicine, surgery, forensic science, twin bachelor and masters law programs and a post graduate degree in Legal Ethics at Monash University before graduating with a Masters in Health Management from Griffith University.

He went on to gain fellowships with the Australian College Legal Medicine and the Faculty of Forensic Medicine with the Royal College of Physicians in London while completing a Churchill Fellowship in forensic medicine and women’s health.

“Medicine and especially obstetrics has revealed to me just how similar all of us who occupy this small planet actually are. We all have so much more in common, than that which divides us. Correspondingly, many of the current challenges facing health care delivery in Australia have already been felt by our American colleagues. By examining interventions that American centres have undertaken, we can improve health outcomes in Australia.”

David P Bishop Postdoctoral Scholars

Home InstitutionUniversity of Technology Sydney
Host InstitutionDavid Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles
Award NameFulbright New South Wales Postdoctoral Scholarship
DisciplineChemistry
Award Year2016

David obtained his bachelor degree in Applied Chemistry with Honours from the University of Technology Sydney. He continued his studies at UTS, obtaining his PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 2012. David was a founding member of the Elemental Bio-imaging Facility at UTS, which contains one of the finest collections of high-tech analytical equipment in Australia. He was employed from 2010-2014 as its Laboratory Manager during which time he developed his skills in novel applications of advanced analytical instruments and management. This experience also provided him with insights into diverse fields of research, ranging from biochemistry to nanomaterials, providing him with excellent cross-disciplinary understanding.

During his PhD and in the ensuing years, he became involved in projects which looked at the effects of metals in human health and in particular degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases and more recently muscular dystrophy. David commenced a post-doctoral fellowship in 2015 with the aims of using his knowledge of instrumentation to develop novel analytical techniques to further investigate the roles of bio-metals in physiology and to use metal tags to quantify biomolecules that may be indicative of disease.

The Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholarship will allow David to develop a novel approach to quantitatively determine dystrophin levels in mouse models of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a debilitating disease that primarily affects young people. This research will take place in the laboratory of Dr Wanagat in the Division of Geriatrics at the University of California Los Angeles. This research will enable measurement of small changes in dystrophin levels, which may be indicative of an effective treatment. Changes as small as 10-15% may provide extended and/or improved quality of life, but cannot currently be well quantified. The strategies developed during this project will be applicable to numerous disease states which currently rely on qualitative histological assessments.

Hannah Barrett Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionUniversity of Massachusetts
Host InstitutionThe Australian National University
Award NamePostgraduate Scholarship
DisciplinePsychology
Award Year2012

“As a low-incidence disability, deafness has drawn relatively little attention from the academic community, but this is likely to change. Thanks to the aging of the baby boomer generation, the ranks of the hard-of-hearing are about to skyrocket.”

Ms. Hannah Barrett, a recent graduate in psychology from University of Massachusetts, Amherst, has won a Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarship to spend a year at the Australian National University in Canberra. Through her Fulbright, Hannah will undertake psychology research to assess how to overcome the stigmatizing effects of hearing loss.

“Hearing loss is often stigmatized, and this in turn affects the self-esteem and well-being of the hard-of-hearing,” Hannah said.

“It is more important than ever to analyze—and try to relieve—the social, psychological and health effects of hearing loss. It is important as well to increase the level of understanding between the hard-of-hearing and the larger population,” Hannah said.

Hannah says that her life’s goal is to understand how people negotiate deafness and situations in which they experience stigma and social and psychological isolation. As a person who has been deaf since birth, she knows firsthand what such experiences are like.

Hannah plans to work with two researchers at The Australian National University on a controlled study investigating the use of social support for reducing the incidence and effects of stigma and social isolation.

“Our hope is that members of the intervention group develop more accepting attitudes towards their hearing difficulties; adopt, with family and friends, more inclusive perceptions of social identity; share coping and resilience building ideas; and participate in group-wide and even community-wide efforts to put lasting social supports in place,” Hannah said.

She was drawn to Australia, where researchers first developed cochlear implant technology and continue to conduct much of the best psychological research on hearing loss.

While acquiring a BA in psychology, Hannah was Historian for the UMass Psi Chi Chapter and worked in a variety of psychology labs. She won an Honors Research Assistant Award, among other awards. She also reviewed arts and entertainments events for her university newspaper and volunteered as a teacher’s assistant in an advanced comedy course.

 

Brian Entler Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionThe University of Scranton
Host InstitutionMacquarie University
Award NameFulbright Postgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineBiology
Award Year2015

Brian received his Cum Laude degree in Neuroscience and Biology from The University of Scranton in 2013. During his undergraduate career he quickly excelled in research and his institution awarded him both the Presidential and Casey Fellowships for his independent research entitled ‘Morphine addiction in Ants: a new model for addiction, reward, and self-administration.’ Brian first developed his passion for scientific research while interning in Panamá at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. While in Panamá his research focused on the associative learning abilities of two closely related species of rainforest ant. His research in Australia will utilize a similar paradigm.

Brian then received his M.S. in Biochemistry from The University of Scranton in 2015 and was the recipient of a full tuition scholarship and Graduate Teaching Assistantship. As a GTA, Brian actively taught general chemistry lab and assisted in teaching both analytical and forensics labs. During his masters he designed a novel experiment entitled ‘Morphine addiction in Ants: Quantifying serotonin, dopamine, and octopamine using HPLC equipped with Electrochemical Detection.’

Working with Dr. Andrew Barron at Macquarie University and his collaborator Dr. Vincent Daria at The Australian National University Brian will examine mechanisms of choice and decision in the honeybee brain to enable computer modeling of insect brain function. Understanding how the brain works, processes thought, and how both thought and decisions emerge from brain circuitry are the last grand challenges of modern neuroscience. Currently there is enormous interest in efforts to model the human brain, but Dr. Barron, Dr. Daria, and Brian share a mutual conviction that first modeling an organism with a far smaller brain will reveal the essential and fundamental mechanisms by which thought and decisions emerge.

Matthew Lee Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionUniversity of Pennsylvania
Host InstitutionQueensland University of Technology
Award NameFulbright Postgraduate Scholarship
DisciplinePsychology
Award Year2015

As a game designer, health professional, and chair of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA)’s Serious Games SIG, Matthew is passionate about the potential for digital entertainment software to enhance people’s lives and improve society. His research focuses on developing a framework for the design of therapeutic games outside the confines of the clinical environment, and his publications examining how entertainment-focused games and other media engage audiences through narrative, gameplay, and social cues.

His previous work explores how virtual worlds could be used for the public good, and he has collaborated with the University of Southern California and the MacArthur Foundation. Matthew designed the simulation and assessment tools of the “PTSD Toolkit for Nurses” – an e-learning program designed to train registered nurses in recognizing the symptoms of PTSD in patients and how to respond effectively, and Quarantine – a public health game best described as “Sherlock Holmes meets SimCity.”

After graduating from the University of Southern California in 2009, he went on to obtain certifications as an EMT and a registered nurse to better understand community health and how games could be useful both in a clinical setting, and in a broader public context.

In 2014, he founded AFK Studios, a company dedicated to tackling real-world problems through the power of games as virtual experiences. Their early work with Tethys, a game tackling the issue of global water management, brought them to the finals of the G20 Global Business Challenge.

Among other awards, Matthew has been chosen as a two-time IGDA Scholar (honoring the most promising students in game development) and one of “15 to Watch in 2015” by The Feast, an international network of social innovators.

While in Australia, Matthew will be studying the relationship between peer aggression in online games and the design of underlying systems that promote or inhibit communication, cooperation, and other forms of social interaction, in an effort to learn how online communities – just as communities in the offline world – are shaped by the context of their interactions.  Through an understanding of this relationship, Matthew seeks to minimize online ‘toxicity’ through better design, ultimately helping online communities foster a culture of tolerance and transparency while remaining true to their community’s character and guiding principles.

William Lempert Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionUniversity of Colorado at Boulder
Host InstitutionUniversity of Notre Dame
Award NamePostgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineAnthropology
Award Year2014

William is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. He is studying Indigenous media in Northwestern Australia for his PhD in cultural anthropology. Working collaboratively with two media organizations on video projects, he is interested in understanding how they differently come to represent the diversity of Aboriginal experiences.

For as long as William can remember he has been interested in learning about other cultures. As an Eagle Scout, he began to understand the importance of service to community as well as experiential knowledge of the physical and social world that could not be learned in books. In high school, volunteer work in the aftermath of racial riots in his hometown of Cincinnati served as a catalyst for him to begin thinking critically about structural and racial inequality. After years of saving and planning, William and his dad were able to travel to Tibet. While on their way back to the airport in Lhasa, they were in a catastrophic highway crash in which William was thrown 60 feet from the taxi, compressing and fracturing multiple vertebrae his my lower back. Confined to an upper body cast for the following six months, this setback served as an unlikely opportunity for reflection on William’s life. Over the next two years he fully recovered from what his doctors said was statistically an “un-survivable” accident. The feeling of having received a second chance at life at the age of 15 made William even more driven to learn broadly and travel widely.

College provided a diverse and exciting set of opportunities for pursuing his goals. In a residential interdisciplinary studies program at Miami University William worked as a writing tutor, hosted a radio show, and designed his own major, receiving grants for a variety of experiences including an honors summer project with local Tibetan Buddhists, a field school in Brazil on national and local identity, a spring break social justice program in Nicaragua, a summer ecological trip in Kenya, and an environmental sustainability program in Australia. William synthesized this-empowering education through an honors thesis on the politics of popular Indigenous representations. After college he spent a year traveling, working various jobs, and living in multiple social arrangements. William then decided to attend graduate school in the discipline that would best align with his passions, cultural anthropology. Through graduate programs at the University of Denver, and the University of Colorado, William has fostered a love for teaching and has been inspired by the ways in which Indigenous people use media to transcend stereotypical representations. He has continued to gain fieldwork experience in Native America and explored his own family background in life history interviews with his 92-year-old grandmother who, as a teenager, saved her parents from certain death in the Dachau concentration camp, though she lost the rest of her large extended family. In addition, William has repeatedly returned to Australia to work with Indigenous media outlets in urban and remote areas, where he has been humbled by the palpable joy and welcoming he felt from my Aboriginal collaborators, despite serious material/health disparities and legacies of historical trauma. William’s background in guitar and songwriting, interest in learning Australian Rules football, as well as the social nature of media making has continued to facilitate friendly and respectful relationships with community members.

Understanding Indigenous media is an essential element in engaging and supporting some of the most culturally rich yet vulnerable peoples. This Fulbright period is part of his dissertation research project, which seeks to understand the recent rise of the NITV and ICTV national Aboriginal television networks through an ethnographic study of two similar cohabiting Indigenous media organizations in and around the ethnically diverse town of Broome in Northwestern Australia. By following the social lives of their media through collaboration on production teams, William seeks to reveal the tensions and paradoxes of contemporary Aboriginality embedded within the daily practices of diverse video projects. With high levels of media productivity and success in Aboriginal activism, the Kimberley region will provide an ideal backdrop for revealing the stakes relating to how Indigenous media makers come to represent different visions of Aboriginality. Namely, to what ends do they endeavor to make video programs that are at once locally relevant, politically salient, activist orientated, financially viable, and appealing to a diverse audience? This dissertation will contribute to scholarly understandings of the changing diversity of Indigenous media in settler-colonial nations, as well as mutual understandings of Indigenous challenges and perspectives between Australia and the United States.

Dominick Ng Postgraduate Students

Host InstitutionUniversity of Sydney
Award NameUniversity of California, Berkeley
DisciplineComputing & Human Languages
Award Year2012

“The world is undergoing an information explosion, and many people struggle to find what they need amongst the noise. We need smarter tools to manage, search, and manipulate information – tools that can comprehend language as humans speak it.”

Mr Dominick Ng, a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney, has won a Fulbright Scholarship to spend eight months at UC Berkeley furthering his research in computational natural language processing.

“We are drowning in data, and soon it will be practically impossible to manage our information without computational tools that can understand human language,” Dominick said.

“Accurately identifying the syntactic structure of language is vital: syntax tells us that “Alice loves Bob” is different to “Bob loves Alice”. Software tools called parsers are used to automatically identify this structure, but they make several unrealistic assumptions about language. The aim of my project is to make parsers read more like humans do, and dramatically improve their accuracy.”

Dominick said that state-of-the-art parsers are fully correct on less than half of the sentences they process, severely impairing their usefulness.

“One problem with parsers is that they consider sentences independently of one another, rather than using the context that a human would. When a new sentence is considered, the information gained from prior ones is discarded – even though this isn’t how humans read text. Through my Fulbright project I will develop a new approach to parsing that retains and uses this lost context,” Dominick said.

“This parser will better resemble the way humans interpret language, and overcome the accuracy problems that plague the field. The algorithms I will develop will have broad applicability across existing parsers, and lead to faster and more accurate information search.”

Dominick has a B.I.T. (Hons I) from the University of Sydney. His awards and prizes include the University Medal (2010); the University of Sydney Academic Merit Prize (2010); the Allan Bromley Prize for Best Honours Thesis (2010); the Google Australia Prize for Excellence in Computer Science (2009), the Capital Markets CRC High Achiever’s Scholarship (2009), and the G.S. Caird Scholarship in Computer Science (2008). In his spare time he enjoys reading, swimming, squash, computer programming and teaching, and amateur photography.

Hannah Ryan Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionFederal Court of Australia
Host InstitutionHarvard Law School (TBC)
Award NameFulbright Postgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineLaw
Award Year2016

Hannah is a lawyer interested in the protection of civil liberties. She currently works as an Associate to a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia, and was previously a tipstaff in the New South Wales Supreme Court’s Court of Appeal.

Alongside this work, Hannah is Vice President of the New South Wales Council for Civil Liberties. In this role, she has devised policy, coordinated and written submissions to government inquiries, appeared before a parliamentary committee, and organised public forums, addressing issues including Australia’s counterterrorism laws, press freedoms, whistleblower protections, and privacy.

As an undergraduate, Hannah was elected to edit Australia’s only weekly student newspaper Honi Soit. She has written on legal and civil liberties issues for publications including Sydney Morning Herald, Guardian Australia, Legal Tweaks and New Matilda.

Hannah’s experience in journalism led her to focus her undergraduate law studies on the intersection between law and journalism. She has published academic work on the protection of journalists’ sources in courtrooms.

Hannah’s academic ability was recognised by numerous prizes and scholarships throughout her undergraduate studies. She was also a finalist for the University of Sydney’s Convocation Medal.

Hannah has also been a successful mooter. As a student at the University of Sydney, she won the national championship of the prestigious Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.

Hannah has previously worked as a research assistant at the University of Sydney.

Hannah intends to use a Master of Laws at a US university to explore the protection of freedom of expression and the free press in the digital age, particularly as those values are affected by national security lawmaking.

She sees the internet as both an unprecedentedly powerful tool enabling citizens and journalists to express and exchange ideas, and as a key instrument for governments seeking to monitor, and suppress, ideas and communication. Accordingly, freedom of expression is enjoying new forms, but also facing new threats, which must be addressed legally. She is particularly interested in conducting research into the legal protection of whistleblowers.

Hannah hopes her research will contribute to level-headed policy-making in Australia, which protects our security but also properly appreciates the civil liberties interests at stake.

Miriam Shiffman Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionPomona College
Host InstitutionThe University of Queensland
Award NamePostgraduate Scholarship
DisciplineMolecular Biology
Award Year2013

“Marsupials play unwitting host to an array of relatively unexplored microbial diversity .The microbes that scientists have been able to culture – the sole basis for decades of microbiology research – are estimated to represent less than one per cent of the true diversity that exists.”

Ms Miriam Shiffman, a recent graduate in Molecular Biology from Pomona College in California, has won a Fulbright Scholarship to come to Australia for a year. She will go to the University of Queensland’s Australian Centre for Ecogenomics (ACE) to undertake research into microbes harboured by Australian native marsupials.

“The isolated island continent of Australia has given rise to unique animals harbouring a host of previously uncharacterized microorganisms. ACE is home to the resources and scientific mentorship I need to study these microbes.”

Miriam says that this is because ACE is one of the only institutes in the world devoted to the sequence-­‐based study of microbial ecosystems.

“ACE is working to spearhead the international charge to complete the microbial Tree of Life and to catalogue native Australian microbes as part of the Atlas of Living Australia. Besides filling in huge gaps in our knowledge about the Tree of Life, my research will address how microbes actually live in nature: in complex, interactive communities.”

Miriam says that these microbial interactions have implications for everything from global warming to human health and disease.

Miriam has a BA in Molecular Biology, magna cum laude, from Pomona College. She has won honours including the Walter Bertsch Prize in Molecular Biology; election to Phi Beta Kappa; Sigma Xi award for promise in scientific research; and a research internship at the Center for Systems Biology at Harvard. Her extra curricular activities include photography and mentoring and tutoring in science.

Eleanor Wood Postgraduate Students

Home InstitutionAustralian Energy Market Operator in Victoria
Host InstitutionHarvard University
Award NameFulbright Anne-Wexler Scholarship in Public Policy, Sponsored by the Australian Government, Department of Education and Training
DisciplineSustainable Energy Public Policy
Award Year2012

“The challenges of climate change and energy security will lead to fundamental changes in the way developed countries produce and use energy. In the coming decades, transitioning to a sustainable energy system will be essential for Australia’s ongoing prosperity and security.”

Ms Eleanor Wood, a planning engineer with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) in Victoria, is the 2012 Australian winner of the Anne Wexler Australian-American Studies Scholarships in Public Policy. Through her Anne Wexler Scholarship, Eleanor will go to the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in the United States (TBC) for two years to undertake a Master of Public Policy with a concentration in business and government.

By combining her technical knowledge as an engineer with increased leadership and policy skills developed in the U.S., Eleanor aims to play a key role working with industry in the development of a sustainable energy system for Australia’s future after she returns home.

“The scale of the technical and policy challenges facing the energy industry is huge. As a planning engineer at AEMO, I have seen organisations and companies across the sector grappling with uncertainty over how best to direct the significant investment needed for the future,” Eleanor said.

“I believe that the transformation to a sustainable energy system can be achieved with a minimal impact on the Australian economy, if there is a fundamental shift away from the current industry paradigm of ever-increasing demand being met by more generators and growing networks.”

“When I return to the industry I will bring international perspectives and expertise on energy policy, as well as linkages to professionals in energy-related organisations around the world. These experiences will help me to increase my contribution to policy development and leadership in Australia’s
energy industry transformation.”

Eleanor has a Bachelor of Engineering in Renewable Energy and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy from the University of NSW.  She has won various awards and prizes including University Medal in Renewable Energy Engineering, the Renewable Energy Thesis Prize and a UNSW Exchange Scholarship. She has worked and collaborated with numerous advocacy and research organisations, including GetUp, where she contributed to campaigns for renewable energy and climate change action. Her other interests include foreign languages, especially French and Spanish. In the past she has spent time in Spain, France and Mexico, studying language courses and travelling.

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 Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) 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.
