About

22 Rosalie completed her PhD in physical and inorganic chemistry from the University Sydney in 2004 with Professor Trevor Hambley.  She immediately took up a postdoctoral position at Stanford University and Stanford Synchrotron radiation laboratory with Professors Ed Solomon, Keith Hodgson and Britt Hedman, developing a range of synchrotron based spectroscopic techniques.  Since returning to Australia she held the positions of environmental spectroscopist for CSIRO Land and Water and beam-line research fellow at Monash University before taking up her current position as senior lecturer in physical and analytical chemistry at James Cook University.  Her research is highly interdisciplinary and spans understanding the chemical differences between biologically produced and synthetic minerals, biocorrosion, energy transfer in natural and synthetic systems, and the evolution of metalloprotein based catalysis.

Horticulture Innovation Australia - Research Grant

Activity 2.6 (Banana soil physico-chemical properties) of 'Fusarium wilt Tropical Race 4 Research program (BA14014)'

Indicative Funding
$320,000 over 4 years (administered by DAF)
Summary
The project will determine the influence of soil physiocochemical conditions on growth and infectivity of the banana disease-causing fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. Cubense (Foc. Foc is one of the world's most destructive banana diseases and Tropical Race 4, which attacks the Cavendish variety, was recently detected in the Tully valley in the heart of the North Queensland banana production region. This project is part of a larger program aimed at providing new information and practices to address key areas of need with a medium to long-term view of developing management practices for banana growers affected by Tropical Race 4.
Investigators
Paul Nelson and Rosalie Hocking in collaboration with Tony Pattison and Anna McBean (College of Science & Engineering, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and Forestry)
Keywords
Soil Chemistry; banana disease; sil physics; Fusarium oxysporum (Netriaceae); soil biology; agricultural soil management

Australian Synchrotron - Call for proposals

In operando X-ray absorption spectroscopic analysis of cobalt oxide electro-catalysts for water oxidation

Indicative Funding
$2,109
Summary
X-ray absorption spectroscop0y will be used to characterise a series of materials which are efficient for water oxidation catalysis
Investigators
Rosalie Hocking (College of Science & Engineering)
Keywords
Catalysis; Renewable Energy; oxygen evolution

Australian Research Council - Linkage - Infrastructure (L-IEF)

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facility for Northern Australia

Indicative Funding
$270,000 , in partnership with the Charles Darwin University ($35,000)
Summary
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a fundamentally and critically important technique in the characterisation of organic, inorganic and biological compounds. The purchase of a state-of-the-art instrument at James Cook University and a lower resolution instrument at Charles Darwin University are required to support productive existing research projects, and nurture future projects, in organometallic chemistry and the development of new materials and analytical sensors; organic photochemistry as applied in synthesis and degradation; natural products, pharmaceutical, inorganic chemistry, where multinuclear nuclear magnetic resonance is most important and applicable in drug design, development and delivery.
