Doctoral student, Australian National University

I am currently a PhD candidate at The Australian National University's School of Culture, History and Language. I am conducting research into the history of social and cultural change for Hulu speaking people of Papua New Guinea's Hela Province, which is also the site of ExxonMobil's PNG LNG Project. I have a background in geology and environmental science and worked as an environmental consultant before undertaking a Masters Degree in Development Studies where I conducted research into the impact of pollution from the Ok Tedi mine on West Papuan refugee communities living along the Fly River. I am interested in the environmental, social and political effects of mining operations in developing countries.
