Biography

I have a desire to pursue a career in Public Policy. I have worked in Agriculture, Construction, Disability Care, Indigenous Affairs and the Not-for-Profit Sector. These grassroots experiences have led me to understand the enabling and inhibiting impacts that policies can have upon Australians, facilitating my desire to work at a macro policy-making level. My specific research interests include; sustainable economic development in regional and remote areas, Australian Indigenous Studies and enhancing Australia’s economic, social, political and cultural engagement with Asia. Aside from my academic focus, I am a keen surfer with a love of the cold waves of Victoria.
