I started my PhD journey at the School of Computer Science in 2022, working in the direction of opinion mining and text summarisation. My prior academic training included a second Bachelor’s degree in Science (mathematics and computer science) and a Master’s degree in organisational psychology from the University of Auckland. As a returned student, I have worked in the education, management consulting, and marketing research industries centred around process / system redesign as well as quantitative and qualitative methods and analyses. I am passionate about contributing to real-world problem-solving, especially in areas such as education, biodiversity, sustainability, and conservation. Outside my PhD topic, I have broad interests in both theoretical and applied inter-disciplinary topics that involve applied mathematics, modelling, quantitative and qualitative analytics.
