I have been a Monash student since 2011. I completed my undergraduate education at Monash in 2014, and enjoyed it so much that I decided to stay on as a postgraduate.

This is my third term on the MPAEC, having previously held the positions of Education Officer (Research) in 2015/16 and Vice President in 2016/17. My involvement with the MPA has also lead me towards representing postgraduate students on a national level at the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations.


I am currently in the third year of my PhD in sociology. My research investigates how scientific developments relating to gender differences are reported in the mainstream news media.
