I am a confident, kind, sensitive, earnest and enthusiastic communicator who is able to disseminate and make complex concepts clear and comprehensible. I facilitate and direct dialogue through creating a safe and inclusive space, through providing informative feedback, by carefully encouraging reflexivity through the questioning of preconceptions, views, and positions, and by sensitively negotiating beliefs and understandings, warmly encouraging participation, and by acknowledging and valuing all contributions.
I have a PhD in Classics and Archaeology and teach various classes at the University of Melbourne. I have significant VCE tutoring and experience and I am a confident and engaging speaker, presenter, and class facilitator. I have given talks and lectures around the world both during and after completing my postgraduate education at the University of Melbourne. I have spoken at countless conferences and academic institutions throughout Europe and the Middle East on a broad array of topics such as anthropology, archaeology, ethnography, philosophy, history, politics, and consciousness disseminating complex information to a diverse, cross-cultural audience of both academics and laypeople alike.

Taught students about the mutually enforcing role of socio-cultural theory and ethnography in understandings of the contemporary human endeavour. Particular emphasis was placed on both classic and modern theories of personhood, social identity and relatedness in social anthropology and their relevance for understanding a range of contemporary social issues relating to kinship, migration, travel and tourism, nationalism, modernity, ageing and the life course and digital technologies.
