Biography

As an academic, I am influenced by key theories within Sociology and my own lived experiences. I am interested in understanding social issues within our society, analysing them, and addressing them. As a biracial man with lived and work experience within lower socioeconomic environments, I understand the complexity involved in the intersections felt by the vulnerable or less privileged in society. I believe there is potential for Australia to examine its own approach to social inequality, and to learn from our allies in East Asia.

 

Through the Westpac Scholars program, I intend on examining multiculturalism, hegemony, and workplace relations within East Asia. After the completion of my undergraduate program, I intend on further analysing how East Asia, in comparison to Australia, operates within different intersectionalities and social barriers.

 

My hobbies include exercising, cooking, writing, and spending time with friends.
