    "This prize was a welcome validation of the thesis I produced with the support of my supervisors. I am currently seeking to have the thesis published as an academic book and the granting of the award will assist with the relevant applications. I am also in the process of developing an ARC linkage grant and other applications for early career research projects. The financial support and recognition the prize has offered me will also assist with these and is much appreciated."
