By Curtin Library 7 May 2019 News & events Comments Off on Research Rumble: innovation on display at the Library

Curtin University’s rich research offerings were on display to industry, the public, staff and students throughout Research Rumble, a four-day showcase exploring the future of health, astronomy, technology, mining, agriculture, sustainability and data science. The Robertson Library hosted a research poster exhibition to showcase our student’s exciting and innovative research, with 15,000 clients visiting the Library throughout the Research Rumble period.

Poster winner, Daniela Scaccabarozzi, is congratulated by Kate Conway, Associate Director, Learning, Engagement & Global.


The exhibition, which ran from 25 – 27 March 2019, consisted of more than 30 electronic and physical research posters. The posters spanned the University’s four faculties of Science and Engineering, Business and Law, Health Sciences and Humanities; creating a fascinating diversity in research areas and topics.

A highlight was judging the ‘Most Engaging Poster’ entered as part of the exhibition. Daniela Scaccabarozzi, School of Molecular and Life Sciences, was crowned the winner with her poster Masquerading as peas: a case of floral mimicry in an Australian orchid, commended for her use of colour, clear layout, and clarity in explaining her research.

In addition, several entries were highly commended by the University Librarian Catherine Clark. Elizabeth Brown, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine, Angela Lee, School of Marketing, Yuanghang Liu, School of Media, Culture and the Creative Arts and Darren Shawn Tek-Suen Cheah, School of Earth and Planetary Sciences, also received awards. The 30 attendees at the awards ceremony enjoyed afternoon tea while networking with fellow researchers from different faculties.

Darren Shawn Tek-Suen Cheah, School of Earth and Planetary Sciences was highly commended for his entry. 

Elizabeth Brown, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine  was highly commended for her entry. 

“The Library provides the ideal space for a cross-faculty event,” said Science and Engineering Faculty Librarian Linden Hall, organiser of the exhibition.

“As well as being centrally located, the Library supports students and staff across the University, so we have connections with all faculties. A big thank you to the students for exhibiting their work with us!”

2019 was the inaugural year for Curtin’s Research Rumble, previously known as Research Week. Events, seminars and presentations were held at the Bentley campus, the city campus, Technology Park and in the metropolitan area.
