Eileen Scott teaches in a range of courses: Microbiology and Invertebrate Biology II, Microbiology for Viticulture and Oenology II, Plant Health, Viticultural Methods and Procedures.
She is course co-ordinator for Microbiology and Invertebrate Biology.
Eileen has a keen interest in supervision of research students. She has supervised 35 PhD students and 23 honours students to successful completion at the University of Adelaide.
Eileen won the Adelaide University Postgraduate Students' Association Supervisor of the Year Award in 2001 and was nominated again in 2005.
For possible honours projects in the coming year, please see Files (below).
Fungal and bacterial diseases of horticultural crops, grapevines and pulses and oilseeds.
Diagnosis, epidemiology and management of fungal and bacterial diseases.
Phytophthora diseases of natural ecosystems.
Eileen led research projects on Fungal contaminants and their impact on wine quality, and Diagnosis and management of Eutypa dieback in the Cooperative Research Centre for Viticulture (2003-2006).
Current research is supported by the Australian Research Council (ARC). Eileen also contributes to the Cooperative Research Centre for National Plant Biosecurity.
Eileen's group currently comprises two postdoctoral researchers, four PhD students, one masters by research student, three coursework masters students and three honours student. Collaborators include Jenny Davidson and Mark Sosnowski at the South Australian Research and Development Institute.
