Clarice has spent the last eleven years learning about and engaging in the Australia-Indonesia relationship. She is a graduate of Monash University, majoring in Linguistics and Indonesian Studies and is currently undertaking a PhD in Indonesian morphosyntax. She is an alumnus of the Victorian Government Hamer Scholarship to the University of Indonesia and is currently the Director of TAFE Victoria at the Victorian Government Trade and Investment Office, Jakarta. She was recently a delegate of the 36th Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) to Bengkulu, Sumatra where she worked on several community development projects.
