International Education Researcher
International Education | Research | Scholarship Management

I am an historian and international education expert with extensive project management experience in an International Development and education context. 

My research interests include international education, international development, foreign policy and their intersections.

My first book, Mandates and Missteps, was published by ANU Press in February 2024.

I have a PhD from Deakin University. My thesis was titled Australian Government Scholarships for Papua New Guinea and the Pacific: mandates and mis-steps, 1948 – 2018. The thesis was awarded the Outstanding Postgraduate Thesis Award in the 2022 IEAA Excellence Awards.

I am a Senior Fellow of the International Education Association of Australia (IEAA), and I was the inaugural convener of the IEAA Scholarships and Fellowships Network.
