Anna is currently a PhD candidate in the University of Sydney's Department of Political Economy, where she looks at New Zealand's engagement with climate change and the UNFCCC in light of macroeconomic theories of value. Her academic background spans degrees in Law, Media and Communications and Political Science; the last being her favourite and the subject of her Honours. Anna is an enrolled Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of NZ, but has opted for the joys of writing policy over litigating. Currently, she manages the Sydney Opera House's organisational policy when she is not burrowed away thinking about her thesis. Anna attended COP21 in Paris with NZYD, and has a selfie with Christiana Figueres from a dance floor at 2am to prove it (nailed it). Really delicious bread, clashing patterns and Meg Ryan's early '90s aesthetic are among Anna's all-consuming passions outside the world of climate change policy.
