Biography

Passionate about food, I believe the Australia-Asia relationship will be crucial in confronting challenges related to food security. Through this exchange and my studies at the ANU, I hope to learn to identify social challenges related to food security and learn more about the technologies that will be required to ensure sustainable food production.

This motivation arises from my involvement in the Canberra Food Co-operative and the leadership skills I learnt as Director of the Canberra Student Housing Co-operative. This taught me to value diversity and develop a passion for alternative structures that promote social wellness and environmental sustainability.
