USA to Australia 2007 Fellows

Sir Keith Murdoch Fellow
Michael Berumen
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution/James Cook University
Research Interest: Marine Biology
 
 
 
Michael studies the ecology of Butterfly fish, a family of coral reef fish. He will continue his research on feeding ecology, life history traits and the effects of habitat quality on tropical fish. Working in Australia at the Lizard Island ResearchStation he will examine links between habitat quality, feeding patterns, and subpopulation fitness using genetic parentage techniques.
 

Sir Keith Murdoch Fellow
Gwyn Harburg
University of Texas/Walter & Elizabeth Hall Institute of Medical Research
Research Interest: Mammary stem cells
 
 
Gwyn is a PhD recipient in Integrative Biology from the University of Texas’ Southwestern Medical Center. Her research concentrates on the regulation of adult neural stem cells. Her postdoctoral research, along with understanding the biology of stem cells explores the effect of potentially carcinogenic molecular pathways on mammary stem cells.

Sir Keith Murdoch Fellow
Tala Kaplinovsky
University of California, Irvine/University of New South Wales
Research Interest: Adult stem cells
 
 
Tala is completing her Masters degree in the faculty of Medicine at the University of New South Wales. In addition, she has a research position at the Developmental Neurosciences Program at Sydney Children’s Hospital. Her research into adult stem cells focuses on the olfactory receptors. She aims to uncover new therapeutic options for developmental, degenerative and traumatic neuropathological conditions of the brain and spinal cord.
 
Sir Keith Murdoch Fellow
Sindia Sosdian
Rutgers University/Australian National University
Research Interest: Climatology
 
 
Sindia’s research concentrates on paleoclimatology, paleooceonography and oceanography. She will be completing a year’s research at the Australian National University, Canberra. Specifically she will investigate the fundamental controls on Australian rainfall by reconstructing changes in sea surface temperatures and rainfall across the last 7,000 years.
 

Sir Keith Murdoch Fellow
Carissa Klein
University of California, Santa Barbara/ University of Queensland
Research Interest: Applied conservation biology
 
 
Carissa’s research focuses on quantitative based conservation science. The ultimate aim of Carissa’s research is to improve decision making in environmental management by developing science based tools and methods for government agencies and groups involved in natural resource management. Her research aims to effectively balance conservation and biodiversity whilst minimizing both the environmental and economic costs of such projects.
