Get to know the team

Harshini Egorov, Senior Coordinator (Asia, Americas & Canada)

An international student from Sri Lanka, I have travelled to many parts of the world for studies, work and leisure. I am passionate about promoting overseas study opportunities - the experiences and lessons learned cannot be replaced by anything else.


Tim Bendle, Senior Coordinator (Short Overseas Programs)

I have studied abroad in the US and South Korea and enjoy the opportunity to share my experiences with students.  I believe the experience, skills and enjoyment international experiences gives students is an important part of any degree.


Irene Hui, Senior Coordinator (Study Abroad & ISEP)

Originally from Hong Kong, I have studied and worked in Asia, Australia and Europe. I enjoy learning (about) languages and travelling. Having lived in Brisbane for 7 years, I have recently taken a bold step to move to Melbourne - the food and fashion capital of Australia.

At La Trobe Abroad, I help both inbound and outbound students to explore global options that best fit their needs, academic plans and professional goals. My job satisfaction comes from seeing students challenging themselves to live in a new country and returning home with a few adventure stories to share.


Alonso Navarro Mendoza, Acting Coordinator (Regional Campuses, Scandinavia & UK)

Originally from Mexico, I first came to La Trobe University as an international student to do a master’s degree course. Studying overseas has been the best experience in my life as it changed and shaped my personal and professional views and aspirations.

I am very happy to be part of the La Trobe Abroad team and to be able to help students to take part in overseas study opportunities as these experiences will improve their lives in indescribable ways.

Shiri Synan, Coordinator (Regional Campuses, Scandinavia & UK)

The best part of my job is seeing the excitement and delight of students as they come and go on their overseas adventures!

Zeyneb (Zey) Akgun, Senior Officer

I love travelling and have been overseas 8 times to more than 6 different countries. I also have a sweet tooth so love to try the lollies and chocolate from all over the world.

Highly recommend students to study overseas and travel without extending their degree -plus you have access to funding too. It's a no-brainer.

Kim Siemensma, Manager

I have now lived and worked in the USA, Hong Kong and Australia, plus visited over 30 countries and even completed exchange at Stirling University.  All these amazing places have shaped who I am now, built up my confidence, turned me into a foodie and helped me get a job in exchange!
