Biography

I have always been interested in the world and the connections that I can find between people, places, and the physical landscape. This has led to me majoring in Geographical Sciences and Human Geography and Planning. My interest is in big cities and how they run, which probably started when I was living in China as a child. Issues relating to the world’s rising population and increasing urbanisation are central to my area of interest, and my ambition is to be working towards a more sustainable, liveable planet. When I'm not thinking about our planet’s future, I like to listen to music, watch movies with friends, and travel.
