I am studying ecology and Japanese at the University of Queensland. I have a passion for wildlife ecology and conservation, and I one day hope to work for the Australian Antarctic Division. Currently I am part way through my honours project investigating the use of nest boxes for bird conservation. I have also participated in research projects on whale sharks, bird ectoparasites, and the marbled cat (a rare wild cat from Southeast Asia).
My other passion is Japanese language and culture, and in the future I hope to combine my interests to study wildlife in Hokkaido, Japan.
Outside of my studies I am involved in Rover Scouts.
