I am currently finishing my PhD at the University of Sydney in the field of Environmental Aesthetics. I research how the ways that we think about time and scale have transformed over time and have altered appreciation and respect for natural environments. I completed a Bachelor of Arts at UNSW, majoring in English and French in 2011. I then moved to France to complete two years of a Master of Research degree in the field of Comparative Literature. I completed two theses in French on the topic of the sublime in Romantic literature.
