In a world of growing global uncertainty, nurturing collaboration and fostering innovation is critical if we are to overcome the issues facing society and the environment today.

With 8+ years of academic and work experience in the field of environmental sciences and sustainability, including thousands of volunteer hours dedicated to projects spanning design, innovation and entrepreneurship; business and leadership; marine biology and conservation; community development and tourism; terrestrial conservation; and sustainable finance, I understand the inherent complexity and interdisciplinary nature of the struggles we face.

Having displayed an enduring passion for the environment and sustainability I strive to develop the skills and knowledge required to realise the shared vision of social, environmental and economic prosperity for all.

I am currently advancing this aim through doctoral research with the University of Technology, Sydney. My PhD thesis explores how sustainable finance professionals navigate organisational friction to effectively operationalise attitudes towards biodiversity loss and resolve organisational dissonance.
