Chris joined the StudyNSW team as a Project Officer in December 2017. Chris relocated from Canberra for the role, where he had been been working for the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training for several years, predominantly in the international education policy space. During his time in Canberra Chris also completed a year-long secondment to Universities Australia, the peak body representing the university sector.
Chris enjoys international travel and learning about other cultures. His interest in international relations was shaped by participating in a high school study tour to Japan, where he had the opportunity to live with two host families and undertake travel across several Japanese cities.
Chris pursued his interest in international studies at university, completing a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Adelaide and a Master of International Studies from the University of South Australia, before embarking on a career in the public service.
Chris is excited to be a member of the StudyNSW team and looks forward to continuing to work with the international sector and student community to benefit the international student experience.
