Biography

I am a self-driven, skilled marine biologist with four years research and applied experience and two years professional environmental consulting experience. From a young age I gained a deep respect and awe for nature and the world around me, and I have continued this exploration through volunteering, travelling and study. I am currently undertaking a PhD with the goal to be at the forefront of modern and vital coral reef research, and collaborate with like-minded people to bridge the gaps between scientific literature and public policy. My long-term goals are to build an environmentally conscious and resilient Australia.
