I obtained my Bachelor of Science (Geography) and a Master of Environment (Environmental Science) from the University of Melbourne. I was also a resident of Queen’s College, which is one of the eleven colleges affiliated with the university. In addition to my studies, I was involved in choir (as an Alto Choral Scholar), university theatre productions, and several collegiate societies. I helped lead the Geography Students Society and was secretary of the Postgraduate Environment Network. I also interned at the School of Botany (Unimelb), Centre for Sustainability Leadership and Beyond Zero Emissions.
