My time at the University of Adelaide has been extraordinary, challenging and life-changing. I love the social interaction and field-work component of studying earth sciences. During my undergraduate and PhD studies I have travelled around Australia and the world. I am now a part of a global community of geoscientists.

After completing by Bachelor of Science (Advanced) majoring in theoretical and experimental physics, I went straight into a Master of Philosophy in the field of dark matter phenomenology. I appreciated the social network I have been able to build, not only in my field but with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
