Modelling the Aussie Rules Football Kick

Honours project: This project will look at the function of a human leg when kicking an Australian Rules Football. Motion capture data is available, and will be used in conjunction with OpenSim, an open source musculoskeletal model and dynamical simulator.

Semiconductor Physics

Excitation heat map

Honours project: This project will use statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations to investigate the self- assembly of organic semiconductor interfaces and the impact of the resulting interface structure on electronic processes such as charge separation, transport, and recombination.

Interplay of structural & electronic properties in organic electronics

Huang organic electronics

Honours project: Develop a more predictive approach to controlling organic electronic device performance, in particular by exploiting molecular anisotropy to manipulate the structure of organic semiconductor interfaces.

Molecular effects in membrane fluid transport

Huang hydrodynamics

Honours project: Develop a general theoretical understanding of the fluid and membrane parameters that control membrane transport processes and to investigate deviations from continuum hydrodynamics predictions due to molecular effects, which could potentially be harnessed to optimise these processes.
