Head of Global Poverty Project

I am the Head of Global Policy and Advocacy with the Australian-grown Global Poverty Project based in New York.

In this role, I have coordinated several international advocacy campaigns including The End of Polio campaign, which has helped mobilise more than $800 million in support of global polio eradication efforts. I have met and worked with world leaders and philanthropists from around the world including Ban Ki-moon, Bill Gates and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, and am currently working to mobilize the political public support for the UN's new proposed Sustainable Development Goals - a blueprint that seeks to end extreme poverty by 2030.

I have previously been named by The Sunday Times as being amongst Western Australia’s 50 best and brightest, was the 2013 Young Western Australian of the Year, and was also a finalist for 2014 Australian of the Year. I have a BA/LLB (dist) from UWA and was awarded First Class Honours in Political Science and International Relations.
