Personal profile

Biography

 

I am an Environmental Sociologist with a background in Civil Engineering and Project Management. Trained as an engineer, I started my professional career in the private sector, working in large water and wastewater infrastructure projects across Africa and the Middle East. My passion for bridging physical and social sciences to enable sustainability outcomes drove me to do a Ph.D at Monash University, where I studied long-term policy design and planning for urban infrastructure in the context of sustainable development. My thesis was nominated for Monash University’s doctoral medal in 2016. I am currently working at Monash Sustainable Development Institute, where I have developed—and currently leading—an interdisciplinary research initiative on the topic of Food-Water-Energy Nexus.
