We are building the skills and capacity of students to create the solutions for the networked society. We support the next generation of interdisciplinary research leaders through the provision of PhD Scholarships and our Doctoral Academy.
The Institute has a number of PhD students affiliated to the Institute working on a number of innovative research projects. Current students are:
- Estelle Boyle (School of Culture and Communication) – Mediating social exclusion: ICT access in Australian refugee communities
- Alexa Scarlata (School of Culture and Communication) – A Stream Come True? A Critical Assessment of the Impact of Streaming Services on Local Television Production in Australia

- Fernando Lasso (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering) – Wireless Sensor Network management tool based on Software Defined Networking (SDN)
The Doctoral Academy brings together a cohort of PhD students who are engaged with research relating to the networked society. The Academy provides a forum for graduate research students to connect, collaborate and build interdisciplinary linkages.
