Nicholas Fabbri completed a Bachelor of Arts (1st Class Honours) in History at the University of Melbourne. He currently works and volunteers at Australian Red Cross, where he has been extensively involved in the humanitarian responses to natural disasters including the 2019-2020 bushfires, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2021 NSW Floods, as well as community trauma events. Nick also serves as an Infantry Soldier within the Australian Army Reserve, and maintains a strong interest in humanitarian operations domestically and abroad. With his John Monash Scholarship, Nick intends to pursue a Master of Public Policy at the University of Oxford and the Blavatnik School of Government, focusing on humanitarian action and leadership within the Oxford Institute of Ethics, Law, and Armed Conflict. Ultimately, Nick hopes his studies in public policy will contribute to making Australia more resilient to natural disasters, ensuring communities are able to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters in the 21st century. Outside of work, Nick writes on a wide range of topics, primarily arts and culture, and hosts a podcast called Bloom, where he interviews guests with a focus on biography, oral history, news, and current affairs.
