Contact details


General representatives may contribute to the MGA in any of the following ways:

  • Attending the monthly MGAEC meetings, contributing to decision making and voting on issues of concern.
  • Conducting some background research to support an MGA submission.
  • Talking to graduate students in their department/course/faculty to find out what the current issues are.
  • Contributing to one of the many subcommittees that are created for a specific event/issue.
  • Volunteering at an MGA orientation, social event or seminar.


I am in my penultimate year of the Juris Doctor at Monash University. Prior to commencing the JD, I completed a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Physiology at The University of Melbourne. Therefore, my academic interests vary across a range of subjects. During my science degree, I took the opportunity to go on a six-month exchange at The University of Glasgow in Scotland, where I was a member of various sporting groups and societies.

My previous educational roles and career roles have no doubt given me the requisite skills and qualities necessary for my role as a General Representative on the MGAEC. As I enter into the latter half of my JD, I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the wider university community by being a part of the MGAEC, with a vision to ensure that a high degree of representation and diversity is maintained.

Personal Interests

My interests include bike riding and hiking, which I endeavour to do when I have time off from university and work. I also enjoy cooking, eating interesting dishes and trying new foods and travelling – and occasionally, all three at once!
