ARC funding announced

Over $1.3 mil in ARC funding announced

10 November 2017

The grants were awarded to Dr Janice Scealy, Professor John Campbell and Professor Byron Keating, Professor Xin Meng, and Associate Professor Tim Kam.

Associate Professor Emma Schultz, CBE Associate Dean of Research said the ARC funding would allow some of the College’s finest academics to forge ahead in their work on a diverse range of research projects.

Receiving an ARC grant is a significant achievement in the career of a researcher, and I offer my warmest congratulations to each of our researchers who’ve been successful in this round of funding.

"This is a great result for the College. We look forward to seeing the outcomes of these various research projects."

Acting ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Harding said the ARC funding highlighted the breadth and significance of research across the University.

“The ARC funding is great news for ANU and will help fund research that tackles some of the biggest challenges facing Australia and the world,” Professor Harding said.

“It is great to see our researchers taking on the big challenges with projects that enhance the reputation of our University around the world.

“On behalf of the University, I congratulate each of our winners and wish them success with their projects.”

Professor Harding said the results highlighted the talents of female early-career researchers, with 13 of the 20 DECRA awards at ANU going to female researchers.

A theory of communicative practices within financial internet discussion site communities

This research aims to use online financial investment communities to identify factors that drive communication and influence knowledge co-creation, examine how variations influence investor decision making, and develop a mid-range theory for explaining and predicting the influence of online communication patterns on individual decisions and market outcomes. By developing and validating a new mid-range theory this project will help to secure Australia’s place in a changing world through improved information flow.

Professor Xin Meng - $408,916

Inequality of health, wealth and education in China

Her research will examine whether China’s recent increase in income inequality is associated with increased inequalities in health, education and wealth, and uncover the factors associated with increases in inequalities. Significant increases in income and wealth inequality could have detrimental effects on economic and political stability.

“I’m pleased to receive ARC backing for my research into inequality of health, wealth, and education in China. It is my hope that this research project will help identify policies to address inequality and enhance stability in China,” said Professor Xin Meng.

Associate Professor Tim Kam - $194,442

Monetary policy, redistribution and endogenous asset market incompleteness

This project aims to provide a new framework for modelling agent heterogeneity and for evaluating the effects of monetary policy on aggregate welfare and wealth distribution over the business cycle. This project will focus on monetary policy, using new quantitative theories with new efficient computational methods to understand and quantify links between monetary policy, the dynamics of aggregate outcomes (such as inflation or employment), and the distribution of individual wealth (such as money, capital and housing).

Dr Janice Scealy - $369,075

Statistics for manifold-valued data

This project aims to develop, and then implement, a new suite of fully flexible, interpretable and tractable models for manifold-valued data, along with robust and accurate estimation techniques for their parameters. The outcomes of the project are of direct mathematical interest as well as having significant interest to science and business disciplines where manifold-valued data is commonly observed.

In addition to the grants outlined above, three other ARC applications from the College of Business and Economics are now eligible for Post ARC Outcome funding, for the purpose of strengthening and resubmitting their application for consideration in a future round.
