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
$350,000 over 5 years (administered by DAF)
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.
