As a cross disciplinary researcher I will suggest models for integrated research, particularly between the arts and sciences. As a composer and maker of Non Traditional Research Outputs I will advocate for a larger, more inclusive vision of what research is, based on impact and engagement. As a committed educator I will advocate for our students and fund ways to support their learning. As a child of refugees I wish to be a part of the fine tradition of advocacy for a fairer world that has already taken place within the ANU. I will advocate for emerging cultures, indigenous Australians and women. As a mid career academic I have a lot to learn would be honoured to sit in the company of so many significant thinkers, to play a small role in supporting the governance of our University within the principles of equity, excellence and inclusiveness. I will also advocate for the School of Music.
