Biography

I'm a final year Bachelor of Arts Politics and Chinese Language student at the University of Melbourne and have just finished a semester of Chinese Language study at Fudan University. I'm currently completing an internship at the Beijing based Rock Environment and Energy Institute researching the Chinese energy transition and writing blogs in relation to Australian climate change and energy policy. After finishing my BA I plan to further my passion for Chinese and Climate Change Politics by combing these interests in Honours study beginning in 2017. I aim to work between Australia and Asia in my career, promoting political, cultural links and renewable energy development in our region. There's nothing better I love to do than having a kick of the footy with my mates or going to the Annual Melbourne Comedy festival!
