Mining Induced Resettlement, Gender and Community Development, Artisanal Small Scale mining, Social Impact Assessment and Social Performance.

I am committed to researching the role culture and gender play in translating extractive industry wealth into inclusive and sustainable development for local communities.

I joined Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining in September 2018 as a research analyst focused on alluvial small scale mining and mining induced resettlement in Papua New Guinea. I worked at the Barrick operated Porgera Gold Mine as the resettlement social monitoring specialist prior to moving to Australia in 2008. I hold a BA in Arts (double major in Public Policy Management and International Relations) from the University of Papua New Guinea.
