RESEARCH

2015 - present
Doctor of Philosophy, Macquarie University

I am currently undertaking doctoral research in the Department of Politics and International Relations, focusing on the political economy of neoliberalism in Australia, its relationship with multicultural and immigration policy, and how this relationship is implicated in state responses to the spectral threat of terrorism.

2013 - 2014
Master of Research, Macquarie University

Completed two years of combined coursework and research, majoring in Politics and International Relations. I focused on research training and methodologies, political economy, international relations, public policy, comparative politics, and development studies. I also completed a 20,000 word thesis on race and neoliberalism in Australia, entitled 'Exclusion Within, Exclusion Without: Race and Neoliberalism in an Unequal Australia'.

2009 - 2012
Bachelor of Arts (Dean's Scholars), University of Wollongong

I double-majored in Politics and History, whilst also completing subjects in Sociology, Cultural Studies, and English Literature. I also made the Dean's Merit list in two semesters, an acknowledgement of my achievement of an overall mark in the top 5 per cent of the Faculty of Arts.
