Hi there! My name is Xiangji Zheng, and most of my friends know me as Philip. I am doing the first year of my Master of Translation and Interpreting, and I did a Bachelor of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo before I came to Australia. I am dedicated to making sure student voices are heard by the committee and improving the studying and life experience of all postgraduates at Monash.


Personal interests

In my leisure time, I love playing soccer and travelling around the city. There are plenty of terrific food out there and also so many amazing things to explore. Melbourne is one of the most incredible cities I have been living in, and I hope you will also enjoy your life here : )
