torquay_0100_rI have been working in the field of international education since 1992, teaching, developing and delivering curriculum and international student support programs. I have enjoyed managing international education projects, working in educational administration, researching, as well as writing policy and submissions. My major projects involve initiating professional development for international education staff and training education agents working with international students.

I have a particular interest in the history and development of international education in Australia, specifically the experience of international students and their representative organisations.

I am currently undertaking Doctoral studies at the University of Queensland, researching the impact of international students on the City of Melbourne.
