In 1982, I had the great honour of being the first Menzies Scholar in Law. I grew up in Perth and completed the two-year BCL at Magdalen College in Oxford in 1984.
After a brief time in London at Freshfields, I joined Davis, Polk & Wardwell, an old Wall Street law firm. I became a partner in 1994 specializing in corporate finance, with a particular emphasis on initial public offerings of securities and corporate transactions by retailers. In addition, I manage our corporate finance group which numbers over 80 lawyers and have responsibility for the lawyers in our foreign offices. Worldwide, we are always looking for smart, talented young lawyers.
I live just outside New York City in a leafy, green suburb on Long Island Sound. I am married to a New Yorker, and we have three children. Although my job and family keep me firmly tied to New York, we enjoy our annual visits to Australia and our residence in Perth overlooking the Indian Ocean.

I grew up in the small country Victorian dairy farming town of Panmure, about 250km west of Melbourne. I joined the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) on completion of my secondary education and moved to Canberra as an engineering cadet at the Australian Defence Force Academy. After military graduation in 1990, I completed my aeronautical engineering bachelors degree at the University of Sydney in 1991 (University Medallist).
From Sydney, the RAAF posted me to No. 492 Squadron to lead the P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft, airframe and engine design office. At the end of 1993 I was awarded the Menzies Memorial Scholarship in Engineering which allowed me to pursue a research interest in the application of adhesively bonded repairs to primary aircraft structure. I read for a PhD at the University of Surrey on the "Adhesively bonded repair of fibre reinforced composites". My research had particular emphasis on examining the effect of environmental exposure on the performance of bonded repairs to aircraft structure (Supervised by Professor Mike Bader and Dr Paul Smith and assessed by Professor Tony Kinloch of Imperial College).
I returned to the RAAF in 1996 as the RAAF design engineer for the F/A-18 full-scale fatigue test and the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Airworthiness Engineer for composite and adhesively bonded aircraft structures.
now the Research and Technology Manager at Messier-Dowty Ltd, Gloucester,
Sandy Brauer graduated from the University of Queensland with first class honours in physiotherapy and a University Medal in 1991. She worked as a physiotherapist at the Royal Brisbane Hospital before winning an Australian Postgraduate Award to undertake her PhD.
