New Fellows in marketing and science
Thursday, 17 December 2009
Three of the University of Adelaide's leading professors have been honoured by their peers, having been made Fellows of the peak academic bodies in their fields.
- Professor Pascale Quester, Executive Dean of the Faculty of the Professions, has been made a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand Marketing Academy (ANZMAC).
- Professor Tanya Monro, Director of the newly formed Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing (IPAS), has been made a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE).
- Professor Mike McLaughlin, Chief Research Scientist, CSIRO Land and Water, and Professor, University of Adelaide's School of Earth & Environmental Sciences, has also been made a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE).
Professor Quester established the marketing discipline at the University of Adelaide when she joined the School of Commerce in 1991. As an active researcher in the areas of consumer behaviour and marketing communications, she is the author of three leading textbooks and 105 journal articles. She has a strong record of receiving grants for her research, including four Australian Research Council (ARC) grants, has won awards for teaching and supervision, and sits on five editorial boards.
For the last three years Professor Quester has been the Executive Dean of the Faculty of the Professions, while continuing to publish in journals, supervise PhDs, teach a postgraduate course, and win competitive funding for her research. She has been actively involved in developing links with overseas institutions in Malaysia and France and has held several appointments as visiting professor in overseas institutions including La Sorbonne, ESSEC and the University of La Reunion.
Professor Monro is an ARC Federation Fellow in the University's School of Chemistry & Physics. She is Director of IPAS and the Centre of Expertise in Photonics (CoEP), which is a joint initiative between the University of Adelaide and DSTO. She is a world leader in research into new classes of micro and nanostructured optical fibres, for application in industry, health and defence. Professor Monro joined the University of Adelaide in 2005 as the inaugural Chair of Photonics. She has published more than 300 papers in journals and refereed conference proceedings and has been awarded more than $58 million in funding for research since 2005.
Professor Monro is a member of the South Australian Premier's Science & Research Council. She regularly serves on a range of committees for the ARC and other key national bodies in the area of science policy and the evaluation of science. She has won numerous prizes for her research including the 2008 Prime Minister's Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year, and was named Australia's Emerging Leader in Science by The Weekend Australian Magazine.
Professor Mike McLaughlin is Chief Research Scientist in the Environmental Biogeochemistry program of CSIRO Land and Water as well as Professor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide.
Professor McLaughlin's interests lie in developing new approaches to the measurement and understanding of the behaviour of inorganic elements in the environment, including impacts on human and ecosystem health. His research is principally in: biogeochemistry of nutrients and pollutants in soils; environmental chemistry and toxicology, specifically the assessment and remediation of contaminated soils; and advanced techniques to measure and monitor nutrients and pollutants in the environment.
He is Stream Leader of the Soil Nutrients and Contaminants Stream in CSIRO's Agricultural Sustainability Flagship, one of the five international scientists on the Metals Environmental Research Association's Ecotoxicity Technical Advisory Panel, and President of the World Council of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
