“I see postgraduate
    study as an investment
    in my career. It allows
    me to spend time
    learning and using
    the most advanced
    algorithms and
    techniques.”

    PhD candidate Jamie is working on the
    collaborative MBIE Multipurpose Orchard
    Robotics Project, which is developing robots
    to pollinate and harvest in kiwifruit and
    apple orchards. Jamie’s part of the project is
    making the robots drive around the orchards
    autonomously, while they detect fruit, flowers
    and other objects.
    “Artificial intelligence and robotics is
    advancing at such a rate that the theory
    I learnt as an undergraduate 10 years
    ago has been superseded. As the pace of
    innovation continues to increase, further study
    will become more and more important for
    engineers and scientists in my field.
    “The great thing about the robotics group
    at the University of Auckland is that we are
    working with the most advanced techniques
    and applying these to problems in the real
    world: it makes my work both interesting and
    satisfying. Waking up and not knowing if what
    I am going to do today is going to work or not
    makes this research more of an adventure.
    I love working with supervisors who are so
    supportive and shape projects that are a
    balance of practical applications and pushing
    the boundaries of what is possible.
    “I work with Robotics Plus, the
    commercialisation partner for our research.
    We believe that in several years, we could see
    these robots working in the field. This could
    lead to higher quality crops, less wastage
    and robot exports. There is potential for the
    research to be applied in other industries,
    including logistics and fulfilment, transport
    and healthcare. My team, Boon, who won the
    2016 Velocity University Research prize, are
    looking into some of these opportunities for
    the best potential fit for robotics.”

    Systems Engineering.

“When I started, I was
    the only one researching
    microbiome in my
    institute and I had to learn
    everything: the lab and
    analysis techniques. I have
    my supervisor to thank, he
    is the one who pushed me
    hard and I learnt a lot in
    my first year, and now I am
    teaching these techniques
    to other PhD students.”

    Originally from Sri Lanka, Thilini came to the
    University of Auckland after completing a
    research masters at the University of Sydney.
    Thilini’s work at the Liggins Institute looks at
    the link between diabetes and the microbes
    in the intestines of children who are born very
    pre-term.
    “Microbiomes are connected with everything:
    obesity, diabetes, autism, your emotions,
    depression. Previous research has shown that
    these pre-term children have a higher risk of
    developing diabetes. We now know they have
    different gut microbes to full-term babies and see
    links between these microbes and their functions
    with insulin-resistant pathways.
    “My research is part of a large, complex,
    multi-disciplinary project. We not only check
    the microbiome of these babies, but also their
    nutrition, metabolites and other biochemical
    parameters, as well as collecting information
    about their physical activity. It’s team work so
    you get support from other people – especially
    the supervisors and other team members.
    “When you’re doing a PhD, it’s very intensive, you
    don’t have time to think about other jobs. Having
    a scholarship helps a lot and was essential for
    me to do my PhD.
    “We are really lucky, we have money in our
    University PReSS accounts* each year to attend
    international conferences and workshops. I have
    presented my results at different conferences,
    including the Wellcome Trust Microbiome
    Conference in Cambridge, UK, where I was
    awarded the Student Oral: Best Presentation
    Award. I also attended a microbiological data
    analysis course at the University of Chicago,
    and the PReSS account covered my flights and
    accommodation.”
    Thilini Jayasinghe, PhD candidate in Health
    Sciences, is a recipient of a University of
    Auckland Doctoral Scholarship.
    *The University PReSS accounts provide an annual research
    fund to cover research costs such as conference attendance
    and travel (see page 35 for more information).

“I am constantly engaged
    in discovering solutions
    to research questions.
    Finding new answers
    becomes almost an
    everyday habit.”

    “As a bachelors and masters student I developed
    good bench skills, and decided to do a PhD to
    learn how to carry out research. When I began the
    PhD, I realised that my previous study was mostly
    about the knowns in science and a PhD is actually
    about the unknowns. My days never get dull and
    I’m always being challenged with new questions.”
    Naz’s PhD research at the Auckland Bioengineering
    Institute (ABI) uses both lab experimentation
    and computational modelling to study the early
    stages of heart development. Her aim is to make a
    computational model of heart development using
    experimental data.
    “Abnormal growth of the heart during
    embryogenesis causes various congenital heart
    defects. Decades of studies have identified key
    factors at different stages of heart development;
    however, the underlying mechanisms controlling
    heart development are still unclear. I hope that
    my research will enable us to ultimately study
    congenital heart defects in order to develop
    preventative and treatment approaches.
    “ABI has been the ideal place for my PhD research:
    I can work in a multi-disciplinary environment
    and I have the chance to combine experimental
    and computational modelling approaches. I’ve
    had a chance to meet amazing people at the
    University of Auckland, including having the
    honour of being supervised by Professor Peter
    Hunter, who provided me with this great research
    opportunity. The academics here are highly
    skilled, internationally recognised and I have
    learnt so much from them.”

Postgraduate Prospectus 2019 - THE UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND
“I am really grateful
     to have a supportive
     supervisor who has
     given me freedom to
     write about issues of
     personal and academic
     importance to me.”

     Chloe’s research on the need to secure greater
     legal recognition for Māori rights uses the
     experiences of her own iwi, Ngāti Kahu, as a case
     study.
     “I have always been passionate about Māori
     and indigenous rights and my work as an
     undergraduate research assistant on two
     Marsden projects (Onscreen Indigeneity: The
     case of Māori Television; and The Claimants’
     views on the Treaty Settlement Process)
     influenced my decision to pursue postgraduate
     studies and in particular, in the area of Māori
     legal issues and on the premise that I had the
     freedom to write from a more anthropological
     basis for my master’s thesis.
     “I am fortunate to have support and access
     to materials that detail perspectives and
     experiences of Ngāti Kahu in the settlement
     process. This adds a unique insight into what
     is a very important legal and political issue.
     I hope my research can encourage further
     discussion on these issues, and perhaps, how
     these same ideas can be applied to Māori
     legal rights generally.
     “Being involved with Te Rakau Ture (Māori Law
     Students Association) and Ngā Tauira Māori
     (Māori Students Association) has made my
     experience as a young Māori woman at the
     University an enjoyable and worthwhile one.
     I am also grateful for the expertise, guidance
     and support of the academics here.
     “I am stoked to have Dr Claire Charters as
     my supervisor: a successful Māori woman
     who is extremely knowledgeable in Māori
     and indigenous legal issues. Claire has been
     amazing and very supportive of not only my
     ideas, but my journey throughout. For me,
     having a Māori legal woman as my supervisor
     was very important. When I explain my ideas
     and my experiences, I do not feel isolated or as
     if I’m an ‘other’. Being Māori also, she is part of
     this worldview, she lives and breathes it every
     day – she ‘gets it’.”
     Chloe Manga (Ngāti Kahu and Te Rarawa) is
     studying towards a Master of Laws.

“The University offers a
     vibrant environment for
     learning and getting in
     contact with innovative
     technology.”

     Ninna’s PhD research in microbial fermentation
     has led to the development of technology that
     produces a range of functional flours made
     from fruit and vegetable by-products. The
     flours are high in protein, dietary fibre and
     vitamins, and use by-products (pulp, peels
     and seeds) that would normally end up in
     landfill.
     With the support of the Velocity programme
     at the University’s Centre of Innovation and
     Entrepreneurship, Ninna and her supervisor,
     Associate Professor Silas Villas-Boas, started
     Green Spot Technologies, which has a pilot
     plant for the production of the flours and is
     scaling up to commercial production.
     “The amount of food that is lost or wasted
     every year is inconsistent with the global
     population growth rate and future food
     demands. Therefore, we need to challenge this
     situation, and nothing is better than science
     to propose solutions. My research project is all
     about innovation, and the Velocity programme
     was the catalyst for my development as an
     entrepreneur.
     “Having a PhD opens a wide range of
     professional possibilities and the chance to be
     involved in problem-solving projects. It is the
     perfect qualification to get the set of technical
     and personal skills to work in my area of
     interest. Working with supportive supervisors
     who are world-leaders in their field has also
     played an important role in my professional
     development.”

“The best thing about
     postgraduate study is the
     ability to study something
     you are interested
     in. It requires a lot of
     discipline, determination
     and grit, but it’s worth it.”

     After completing a Summer Research
     Scholarship examining the Social Attitudes
     Survey on citizenship and political attitudes
     and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours), Clark is now
     undertaking a Master of Arts in Sociology.
     Clark’s masters research looks at the ways
     young New Zealanders think about their own
     political participation.
     “Doing a summer scholarship showed me
     how challenging – and therefore rewarding
     – research can be. It made sense to continue
     studying for a masters since I’ve always
     enjoyed learning new things.
     “By interviewing young people across New
     Zealand, I’m getting welcome insight into the
     reasons why they are reluctant to vote but
     more eager to participate in other ways. One
     of the most important flow-on effects of my
     research is how we can get young people more
     politically engaged and involved. That’s useful
     not only for political parties but also policy
     analysts, media and the general public.
     “I intend to pursue doctoral studies in the
     near future, which I think will be the ultimate
     test of everything I’ve learnt over the past five
     years. During my time at University, I’ve been a
     Teaching Assistant and Tuākana mentor, and
     eventually I want to make a career of teaching
     because it’s what I enjoy doing most.
     “At University, we get the rare privilege of
     spending our time trying to make the world a
     better place. Auckland has been a great place
     to do that.”
     Clark Tipene (Ngāpuhi), Master of Arts in
     Sociology student, is a recipient of a University

     and a Dean of Arts Masters Thesis Scholarship.

“This programme is
     providing a space to reflect
     on and deepen my practice.
     It is a great mix of theory
     and practical application:
     allowing us to incorporate
     our work experience and
     lived knowledge with what
     we know from the evidence
     and published work.”

     “Over the last decade, I’ve held leadership
     roles in non-profit organisations. A common
     thread in this work has been change:
     designing for social change, making changes
     in the way organisations and systems work,
     and supporting people to change their
     attitudes and behaviours. This programme
     appealed to me because of its grounding
     in social justice and ethics, and its blend of
     social innovation, leadership and formal
     research skills. I also like how the programme
     is structured to allow a wide range of choices
     to support different professional interests.
     “I’m planning to undertake my thesis on
     suicide prevention, focusing on community-led
     responses from rainbow/LGBTI+ communities.
     Despite being at significantly higher risk
     of suicidal behaviour than other groups in
     New Zealand, the rainbow population is not
     well recognised or resourced within national
     suicide prevention efforts. I currently work in
     this area and have been directly engaged with
     the issue of rainbow suicide prevention for the
     last six years. Because of this, I’m anticipating
     that my research will have direct practical
     application in informing how programmes and
     advocacy approaches are developed.
     “It’s been exciting to be part of the first group
     to undertake this masters programme. There
     has been real scope for getting to know where
     my classmates have come from and what they
     are interested in. We’ve formed connections
     that have been supportive and fun.”
