Biography

Having moved from Ireland to Perth in 2012, I’ve grown to love Australia and the incredible opportunities it has given me. I’m a bookworm on all things international relations and history, with a specific interest in economic development and the politics of East Asia. My passion is in the area of education and the importance of cross-cultural dialogue in facilitating diplomatic relations. With my background in IR and Economics, I hope to work in foreign policy in order to facilitate greater social and economic development in the Asia-Pacific.

Interests & Passions

  • Research
  • International Relations
  • Diplomacy
  • Public Speaking
  • Mandarin

One thing most people would be surprised to know about me is I’m a massive fan of all things heavy metal and like nothing more than good moshpit on the weekend.
