Isabella is in her fifth year of study at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW), where she is currently completing an LLB/BSc (Hons). Her Honours research focuses on the health impacts of climate change in Oceania – analysing how the health impacts of climate change have been represented in alternative discourses, and how this has affected climate (and health) action.
Alongside her study, Isabella has been active in student politics with the Victoria University of Wellington Students’ Association (VUWSA), the NZ Union of Students’ Association (NZUSA) and the VUW Feminist Law Society. She is currently an elected member of the VUW University Council.
Isabella is a 2020 Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford where she will study climate and health issues starting September.
