Chethna Ben

I am currently a PhD scholar with the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne. I hail from the beautiful islands of Fiji. I identify myself as someone with diverse set of passions and considers myself as a lifelong learner. My interests include study into systems, processes, land tenure, vulnerability and sustainability.
