I am a currently undertaking a Master of Clinical Research at the Alfred. Prior to commencing my studies with Monash University, I completed my Bachelor of Science (Physiology) at The University of Melbourne.

As an MGA officer I am to become a voice for graduate students. I hope to provide an avenue of support for well-being and a holistic environment for all students. University life can be challenging but, it does not have to be difficult. I hope to be a bridge between the graduate students and Monash University, providing aid and raising awareness for issues that might have been overlooked.

As an Off-campus Officer, I wish to create an environment that is inclusive to students from all study modes. While distance education can be isolating at times, I hope to reach out to them and to make them feel connected to the student body.

I will be a voice for our colleagues and advocate for a better learning environment for all graduate students.

This is my first term sitting on the MGA Executive Committee.
