Studying has meant the combination of opportunities to study a wide variety of landscapes with enthusiastic students, while learning from driven staff who love their field of research and pass that passion on to their students.
The Earth Sciences really attracted me from the start, learning how the environment we experience was created, has been shaped and will continue to change into the future. I took a number of Geology subjects before moving into Geography for a more 'hands on' approach to current environmental systems.
Coming from a small country town in coastal Victoria, I’ve spent a lot of time growing up on the beach, so it seemed like a natural transition to peruse further study looking at coastal systems. I've also had the opportunity to do field work in a wide variety of settings throughout my degree: across long stretches of the Victorian coast, inland Victoria, the Flinders Ranges, the Nullarbor, and Northern Tasmania.
