Biography

I am an incredibly passionate and dedicated individual when it comes to my study areas. While I have a broad and interdisciplinary knowledge of humanities, my interest is the crossroads of politics and geography. Specifically, I am interested in examining public participation in urban governance and the effects globalisation is having on politics and our environment.

 

I also have an interest in transnational migration and political identity. Nothing is more powerful than the voice of the people and a healthy democracy allows those voices to flourish, giving everyone a chance to be heard. Empowering people is the most important step in tackling any global challenges that may face us.

 

When I'm not studying, you'll find me playing basketball, video games, reading, or hanging out with my three-legged dog and best mate, Tripod!
