“I believe doctoral
    research will help me
    broaden my horizons
    in the interface
    between Māori culture
    and environmental
    engineering.”

    Nona is a PhD candidate in Environmental
    Engineering. His thesis aims to facilitate
    more efficient collaboration between Māori
    communities and non-Māori parties to utilise
    and develop geothermal resources.
    “As a member of Te Ārawa and Tainui iwi, I
    am regularly engaging with various members
    of Te Ārawa and Ngāti Tūwharetoa hapū and
    obtaining historical and cultural mōhiotanga
    (knowledge) of Māori communities’ spiritual
    and physical links with geothermal resources
    in the central North Island. I also explore
    the different worldviews associated with
    geothermal development to pursue holistic
    decision-making and ensure cultural,
    environmental, social, and economic
    sustainability.
    “Within geothermal development, Māori
    communities are under-benefited, and
    with little sustainability, our Te Ārawa and
    Tūwharetoa people are at risk of losing the
    very gift that our ancestors have thrived with
    for hundreds of years.
    “I am originally from Rotorua where I was
    immersed in Māori culture and language, and
    utilised geothermal resources as a member of
    the local community. By combining my cultural
    heritage with an education from a western
    engineering institute, I have the ability to help
    facilitate sustainable change and increase
    cultural awareness in the engineering space
    for our people.
    “I hope to raise our younger generation's
    awareness of past, present and future issues
    that Māori communities may face if the current
    direction of geothermal utilisation continues.”
    Nona Hohepa-Taute is a PhD candidate in
    Environmental Engineering. He is a recipient
    of a Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority scholarship and
    GNS Science Doctoral Research Award.

“I learned so many
    new skills during
    my postgraduate
    studies, and it allowed
    me to develop both
    professionally as a
    scientist and grow as
    a person.”

    Rebecca is a graduate of the Doctor of
    Philosophy in Biological Sciences and a
    lecturer in Wine Science at the University
    of Auckland. Her PhD research investigated
    how different temperatures used during wine
    fermentation impacts the metabolism of yeast.
    “I chose to pursue my doctorate because it
    was exciting to be able to select a PhD topic
    that was interdisciplinary, combining my love
    of genetics and aroma chemistry. My decision
    to undertake my studies at the University of
    Auckland was for its strong research culture
    and world-class science performance.
    “My PhD has provided me with many
    opportunities. At an academic level, my
    research resulted in the publication of three
    journal articles in highly-regarded journals
    in the field of wine science. I was also able to
    attend three international conferences and
    present the work from my thesis.
    “At a professional level, I was able to work
    for my supervisor as a lab technician for a
    year after my PhD, which led to developing
    commercial wine yeast strains along with
    some teaching experience. This led to
    postdoctoral and teaching work which was
    essential for getting my academic position at
    the University of Auckland.
    “I have also made lifelong friends
    and developed networks for research
    collaboration.”

    MacKay Memorial Prize, the Frances Briggs
    Memorial Prize in Plant Sciences, and the
    Bright Futures Doctoral Scholarship.

“As a Pacific student,
    the University’s Māori
    and Pacific Admission
    Scheme (MAPAS) provides
    valuable academic and
    pastoral support that is
    second to none.”

    Julie recently completed a Bachelor of
    Health Sciences (Honours), investigating the
    perceptions of Māori stroke survivors and
    their whanau on the use of a robotic aid to
    assist rehabilitation. She will be extending
    her research into a PhD, focusing on the
    epidemiology of cardiovascular disease among
    Pacific people living in New Zealand.
    “Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause
    of preventable death both in New Zealand
    and globally, and Pacific people in particular
    experience a disproportionately higher burden
    compared to the general population.
    “There is a lack of Pacific health researchers,
    and a greater lack of Pacific epidemiologists
    in New Zealand. I decided to pursue
    postgraduate study to help change this and do
    my part to improve the health experiences and
    outcomes of Pacific people in New Zealand.”
    “The reputation of the University of Auckland
    was one of the reasons that I decided to study
    here. The calibre of the academic staff and
    the teaching environment is very high, and
    there are many internationally-recognised
    academics in the Faculty of Medical and
    Health Sciences.
    “My postgrad study helped me to determine
    what fuels my passion, and where I want to
    situate myself in the health workforce. I liked
    that classes were a lot smaller and you could
    build networks and relationships with peers,
    staff members and academics who become
    colleagues when you complete your studies.”

Postgraduate Prospectus 2021 - No1 - The University of Auckland
“I enjoy the independence
     of postgraduate study.
     Having a major project
     to manage is a great
     challenge that is very
     exciting to me.”

     Originally from the UK, Jarrah is a recipient of
     a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship.
     After completing a Summer Research Scholarship
     which sparked an interest in further postgraduate
     study, Jarrah is now studying towards a PhD in
     Bioengineering.
     “My work focuses on cardiac mechanics
     using the Auckland Bioengineering Institute’s
     cardiomyometer. The title of my thesis is ‘Transient
     dynamic performance of cardiac muscle during
     interventions,’ where an intervention is anything
     that modifies the contractile state of cardiac
     muscle be that stimulus frequency, muscle length,
     or use of pharmacological agents.
     “By performing more physiologically relevant
     experiments, we can get a better understanding
     of how the heart works. This is especially useful
     when looking at diseased tissue (e.g. diabetic)
     where we can figure out what changes or goes
     wrong, providing us with information about
     potential targets for treating these conditions.
     “I chose the University of Auckland due to its
     world-leading instrumentation for the study of
     cardiac muscle, along with the financial security
     of a doctoral scholarship. The high academic
     ranking and distinguished reputation of the
     University was certainly a consideration in my
     decision to come here for my undergraduate
     degree. At the time it was the only New Zealand
     university that offered biomedical engineering and
     even now, the degree it offers is unparalleled in
     the country.
     “Studying bioengineering at the University is
     something special – it’s a relatively small group
     which means that you get to know everyone pretty
     quickly. ABI has a great social committee which
     organises events catering to all types of people.
     I’ve made so many great friends through these
     events that I would have otherwise never met.”
     Jarrah Dowrick is a recipient of the University of
     Auckland Doctoral Scholarship.

“PhD study has changed
     my attitude towards life.
     I now think in a more
     positive way.”

     “I chose University of Auckland’s masters
     programme as it is the top university in New
     Zealand, and its accounting and finance
     department ranks high internationally.
     “During my masters studies, I had great
     support from the teaching staff and their
     enthusiasm fostered my interest in accounting
     research. With no hesitation, I chose to
     continue my PhD studies at the University of
     Auckland.
     “Starting PhD study is a serious decision.
     Before making the decision, talk to some PhD
     students about their study and life so that you
     can get a feeling about whether you’ll like it.
     Having a face-to-face talk with the teaching
     staff in your department helps a lot.
     “Another piece of advice that I got from a
     famous accounting professor is to do what you
     are good at. It is a virtuous cycle that makes
     you more confident and more passionate.”
     Lucy (Yixin) Wei is a Master of Commerce in
     Accounting graduate, first year PhD student
     and Graduate Teaching Assistant. She is
     a recipient of the University of Auckland

     supervision and the
     programme as a whole.”

     that gave me an opportunity to explore
     leadership, social innovation and design, and
     to master the skills of research and do some of

     Leadership was a perfect qualification for
     that.

     real privilege for me to be able to respond

     desperate at times.
     “My role has meaning and purpose, and I get
     to be both responsive and creative. It’s fun,
     hard, challenging and really, really rewarding.

     evidence informed work, its importance and
     how to get to it!”
