Biography

I am a motivated and energetic young professional in International Relations and Economics. Through my studies, I hope to strengthen Australia’s economic ties to Asia with the goal of contributing to food and resource security in the region. My aim is to investigate the Asia Pacific economies and their intrinsic development patterns to drive change and draw the benefits of trade to Australia.

 

Outside my studies, I enjoy teaching dance, playing piano, curling up with a notebook and pen, travelling and learning new languages or trying anything outdoors from swimming and soccer to skiing.

Skills & Expertise

  • Public speaking and communications
  • Mentoring
  • Event and project coordination
  • Data analysis
  • Qualitative research

"I hope to improve the effectiveness and accessibility of trade agreements, engaging the private sector and utilising our bilateral partnerships more effectively to contribute to future economic growth and resource security for all Australians."
