Summary: I am currently commencing an MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development at the University of Cambridge
Engineering for Sustainable Development
Employment: Engineer : VicRoads
I am excited to be furthering my studies at Cambridge this year with an MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development. My research for my honours thesis involved addressing renewable energy options for the State of Victoria. I explored the potential for Victoria to become carbon neutral by harnessing its natural resources, such as wind and solar energy. I presented a paper on my research at the ISPRS/IGU Joint Conference in Hong Kong, 2010. I undertook a student exchange to Lund University, Sweden, where I witnessed a socially and environmentally effective approach to transport and urbanisation. Prior to coming to Cambridge, I was working as an engineer for VicRoads, where I was involved in major infrastructure development including construction of a major bridge, incorporating road, rail and river networks. I seek to help transform trends in urbanisation and transport through sustainable development. I am eager to commence my studies and become involved in life at Cambridge.
