From 2019-2020, Edward returned to Farrer Hall as the Deputy College Head, thrilled to support residents and further the student experience at Monash. In 2021, Edward is incredibly excited to lead the Residential Support Team at Normanby House as the College Head.

In his free time, Edward likes to build computers, climb mountains, travel, kickbox and brew beer. His favourite country to explore is Iceland and he is enthusiastic about sustainable food process engineering, as well as sustainable biofuels.
