Angelina graduated from UQ in 2013 with a first class honours in Bachelor of Regional and Town Planning. Her honours thesis on the post-graduation migration patterns and locational choices of international students in Australia has been translated into two refereed publications and featured twice in the national newspaper (The Australian). She then won two scholarships - International Postgraduate Research Scholarship and UQ Centennial Scholarship - to undertake her current doctoral research. The project examines the transition of international students into the Australian labour market with a particular focus on the dynamics and drivers of education-job mismatch.

Angelina has participated as a research assistant in an Australian Research Council Linkage Project. She is also actively involved in teaching as a demonstrator for a few courses. Outside work, she loves cooking, listening to good music and taking warm bath.
