Masters International Community Development


Before coming to the department, I had worked in a variety of community development roles both in Australia and overseas. I have been fortunate enough to live and work in Uganda, Vietnam and Indonesia. My work has focussed on community consultation, project design and project management. In my most recent role, I worked as a Project Management Advisor with a group of grassroots NGOs in Indonesia.

Through my work I have become aware of the growing importance of environmental issues on the global stage. I was drawn to the department as a means of learning more about key environmental issues, and Australia's response to them, in a practical work environment.
