Biography

Through my time at the ANU, my studies of Finance and Mandarin have cultivated my deep interest in Asia, and specifically the opportunities that lie within the Australia-Asia financial sectors. From commodities trading to start-up seed funding, the connectivity and growth between these two sectors is something that can be leveraged by both regions, to have transformative benefits for both businesses and broader society. I’m excited at the opportunity to further my language fluency, connect with my fellow scholars and deepen my knowledge of Asian markets.

 

Outside of university, I love playing sport, particularly AFL.
