Biography

I am a policy evaluator and researcher with a particular interest in global health, health policy and international development. I have a Bachelor of Social Research and Policy (Honours) majoring in Development Studies and have worked and volunteered widely, including for Aboriginal peak bodies in Darwin, NGOs in Sydney and Fiji, and across India as a peer educator.

 

I am currently completing a Master of Global Health with a specific focus on sexual and reproductive health. My current work and research centres on menstrual health. Further study will help me contribute to a growing movement that enables all women to menstruate with the education, materials and facilities they need to do so comfortably and safely. In my spare time, I enjoy doing yoga, tackling the crossword or attempting to finish a book a week this year.

My fondest childhood memories are the endless hours I spent doing competitive gymnastics. I loved the adrenaline rush of launching myself into the air and spinning round and round only to bask in the sweet relief of sticking a landing. Sadly, I don't possess the same fearlessness these days, but I can still cartwheel.
