Lawrence is the Deputy Director and also one of the three Content Coordinators for Asia Pacific Week 2015. He is a postgraduate student studying towards a Master of Arts in International Relations and a Graduate Certificate in Economics.
Born and raised in South Australia, he originally studied a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Politics at the University of Adelaide. He then worked at the Parliament of South Australia and briefly lived in Melbourne before a keen interest in politics and international affairs brought him, perhaps inevitably, to Canberra in 2014 to continue his studies at the ANU.
When he graduates Lawrence hopes to put his studies to use and build a career in public affairs. In the meantime, when he is not hunched over a laptop he enjoys cooking, reading and listening to music.
