This reputation continues to build at JCU Singapore as we attract high-quality academic staff to conduct innovative research projects. Their Mission is to pursue first rate research of international excellence and widely publish the results of their research.
We commit ourselves to research of excellence and high impact, particularly on issues of critical importance to the world’s tropics and high volume tourism areas, such as Asia.
Our Academic staff thematic research areas are; social psychology, Singapore and family, education, aquaculture and marine science, tourism, artificial intelligence, suicidology and self harm and, therapy. Within these clusters our highly qualified academics are delving into research interests as diverse as reef fish evolutionary ecology, vandalism in tourism, learning theories, psychology of Singaporeans, machine learning, data mining, ageing and interpersonal attraction.
The measures of research activity include external research income support, supervision of research students and publication of original research findings in quality peer-reviewed journals.
Faculty research projects for students provide unique learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of clinical and social psychology, business and marketing, tourism, information technology and education.
Research is of little value until it is shared with others to benefit all. The Singapore campus has a Public Lecture Series, an opportunity for researchers and academia to share their knowledge and research outcomes with other research groups and the general public.
JCU Singapore is building on the strong research undertaken by the Australian campuses of this University.
