As a Monash student since 2011, I have a passion for acquiring new knowledge. 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 second term on the MPAEC; I also hold a student representative position on the Arts Graduate Research Committee.


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

Personal interests

I always thought my hobbies were reading and writing. After a solid year of doing little other than reading and writing for the purposes of study, I am on the lookout for developing new interests.
