IAA would like to introduce Emily Gallarde, who has joined the Perth team on a three-month contract as our Digital Marketing Assistant.  This role will involve auditing and creating content for the new combined IAA/IXA website.

Emily is a recent graduate from the University of Western Australia, with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Communications and Media Studies, and Psychology in Society. During her studies, Emily completed internships with both YMCA WA and Mazenod College and previously held various administrative roles with Air New Zealand.

Outside of work Emily likes to go for bush walks and spend time with her family. More recently she has been exploring her Eurasian heritage by cooking traditional foods from Malaysia, and we are all excited to try some in the office.

Welcome to the team Emily!

We’d also like to introduce Nitika Midha who is joining us on a six-month internship to assist us in our public policy development. With all the changes in regulation and many controversial topics floating around, we need someone to work through the issues and help put our responses together.

Nitika is a recent graduate from the University of New South Wales, with a combined Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) and Arts (International Relations). After becoming fascinated with the internet space following an internship at a datacentre company, she is now writing her International Relations Honours thesis on how states are securitising virtual and physical internet infrastructure.

Her previous employers include a datacentre and cloud services provider, so she has some great practical experience already.

Welcome Nitika!
