Biography

I am an Australian lawyer, human rights advocate and policymaker. As a Westpac Future Leaders Scholar, I am completing a Master of Laws at Melbourne Law School, specialising in international human rights law. I am fascinated by the emerging fields of business and human rights, the impact of technology on human rights, and youth empowerment through education.

 

I am a consultant on human rights and social impact at KPMG Banarra, Australia’s largest and most experienced business and human rights consultancy team. I am also an adviser to the United Nations research project on children's rights in the digital age. I am a World Economic Forum Global Shaper and was named by Pro Bono Australia as one of the country's most influential people in the pro bono sector.
