Stephanie Forrest is a Research Scholar at the Institute of Public Affairs with the Foundations of Western Civilisation Program. She completed a Bachelor of Arts with Honours at the University of Melbourne in 2013 in Classics and History.

In her Honours thesis, she reconstructed a previously lost Byzantine chronicle dating to the period of the early Islamic conquests (7th-8th centuries AD), and included a translation of the entire chronicle from early-medieval Greek into English.
