I am a lawyer and have extensive practical and policy experience in the area of domestic violence. Throughout my career in Palestine and Jordan and also as a trainee in France, I’ve worked on social justice issues, with a particular emphasis on human rights and legislation.
I have just completed a PhD in law at the University of NSW and this experience has provided me with the opportunity to develop high level skills in research methodologies, data management, report writing and literature reviews.
I have high-level interpersonal, communication and organisational skills. Through over a decade I have honed my capacity to research and promote special interests, plan advisory and advocacy committees, liaise with agencies and government departments, build networks, and collaborate on joint initiatives.
Throughout my career I have both participated in and delivered seminars and workshops for colleagues, and engaged in policies and research projects.
My achievements in academic and legal fields demonstrate my ability to identify priorities, use initiative, work autonomously, and source appropriate resources.
I am fluent in spoken and written English and Arabic and have working a working knowledge of French. I enjoy working as part of a team with people from diverse political, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
