eRSA are excited to introduce our new team of Research Engagement Specialists (RES): Joey, Alexis and Quang. Each member comes to eRSA from different research backgrounds, bringing unique perspectives on the design of services, communications and support for researchers, and focusing on specific domains.

Joey Gerlach is supporting the Adelaide ecology, biodiversity and agricultural science community in their use of digital research tools, as well as working as a technical writer for Nectar and the eHelp support website.

Quang Doan will provide focused support to the Adelaide community of users of digital research tools in the health and medical sectors, drawing on previous biopharma research and development experience in private industry.

Alexis Tindall will draw on her experience in digitisation in museums to support for the humanities, arts and social sciences research community in their use of digital research tools, and support the Cultures and Community Project.

Together, they will create engagement strategies to ensure researchers can readily access eRSA’s digital tools to enhance their research outcomes. Contact eRSA today to enlist the help of the RES team for your research project.

  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • "The eRSA support is very personal and solution-focused and not just a brushing off 'it's-your-fault-check-your-code' kind of support which one sometimes gets from University tech supports. I very much appreciate the help."

  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”  
    Associate Professor Michael LeeSouth Australian Museum
  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
    Professor Andrea GersonMinerals and Materials Science & Technology
  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”  
    Associate Professor Con DoolanSchool of Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
  • "eResearch capabilities ... ensure we can continue to use the latest methods available in our field. The hope is that through the use of these technologies, we will be able to achieve some research outcomes that may otherwise not have been possible.”  
    Professor Ina Bornkessel-SchlesewskyCognitive Neuroscience, UniSA
