Australian Foreign Policy Fellow
Joshua holds a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Sydney; and a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Queensland. He has gained professional experience across the public and private sector, including Queensland Treasury, global law firm Dentons, the Refugee Advice & Casework Service, and professional services firm Deloitte.
Outside of his professional work in clinical medicine, finance, and the law, he has taken an active interest in Australia’s international relations. This has included serving on the U.S. Consulate-General Sydney’s Youth Advisory Council, being selected as one of ten ‘Next Generation’ Australian youth leaders to attend the Indo-Pacific Strategic Futures Dialogue in 2019, serving on the Australia-Indonesia Youth Association’s Indigenous Engagement Committee, being a delegate to the Australia-China Youth Association’s Australia-China Emerging Leaders Summit, and representing the University of Queensland on the Mitsui Educational Foundation Study Tour of Japan.
Joshua looks forward to producing pieces that make Australia’s foreign affairs relevant to people whose predominant work is not within the diplomatic sphere. As a Wiradjuri and Torres Strait Islander man he also looks forward to analysing Australian foreign policy through a lens that accesses and reflects the views and perspectives of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
