Associate Professor Isabelle Rouiller
Isabelle Rouiller is a Structural Biologist who leads the Rouiller Group in the Bio21 Molecular Science & Biotechnology Institute in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. She is also the project lead for the Melbourne-CNRS Network Joint PhD program project on Analysing the function of the ATPase p97 using cryo-EM.

Dr Kathryn Russell
Kathy Russell a Research Fellow in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences of the Faculty of Science.  She is a fluvial geomorphologist, working on the impacts of urbanization on stream physical form and function. Her research interests include the sediment supply and transport regime of urban streams, sediment pollution produced by construction areas, prediction of stream channel adjustment to urban conditions and the provision of freedom space for urban streams to exhibit healthy dynamic behavior and engage their floodplains. Along with Professor Tim Fletcher, she is also the project lead for the Melbourne-CNRS Network Joint PhD program project on New monitoring technologies serving a better understanding of land and river degradation in urban areas.
