Join the University of Tasmania PhD candidates, Misha Anstari and Stan Kaine, as they present their reports from current research projects.

Misha Anstari will discuss how regular exercise is key to preventing and managing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as it improves blood glucose control.  Her research investigates the use of downhill walking in the management of blood glucose control and other health-related risk factors.

Stan Kaine will discuss the use of AI/Machine Learning to give real-time sea state conditions to ensure the safety of the vessel, cargo and passengers.  His research using Machine Learning converts the six degrees of vessel accelerations into sea state to allow unsafe situations to be avoided by both the vessel capturing the data and other ships transiting the area via AIS transmissions or the internet.
