My goal is to build a career in research and advocacy, using my passions for conservation biology, Japanese and intercultural communication to help find solutions to global sustainability issues. As part of my double degree in Science and Global studies, I’m currently undertaking Honours in Ecology. My project aims to determine priority areas for the control of an invasive willow, to help land managers maximise outcomes for important biodiversity features across Eastern Victoria.
During my exchange to Japan, I plan to complete my final semester of my 10 years of Japanese study, immerse myself in the language and culture, and hopefully volunteer with sustainability-focused organisations. I love exploring new environments and ideas, and in my spare time I enjoy scuba diving, philosophy, and travel.
