Who am I

I am an international student from China who moved to Australia in 2017. I completed Year 12 and then pursued a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic). In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, Pilates, and taking my dog to the beach to soak up the sunshine. Occasionally, I work as a barista on weekends just for fun!

Why I chose a career in power

I thrive on change and challenges and dislike monotonous, repetitive work. This is the main reason I chose a career in the power industry. Being part of the energy transition, dealing with fast-paced changes, and solving world-class problems while contributing positively to our planet is incredibly fulfilling. My passion for the field led me to transition from the oil and gas industry to the power industry, where I am most enthusiastic about making a difference.

Where it all started

I studied a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) (Honors). Before graduating from university, I worked part-time as a barista in a fast-paced café, which helped me develop excellent communication and interpersonal skills. After graduation, my first professional role was in the oil and gas industry, where I designed electrical instrumentation for oil and gas wells.

My work experience.
What's next?

I am currently a Power System Engineer at ElectraNet, the Transmission Network Service Provider in South Australia. I work in the network operation and security team, handling daily operational issues, conducting outage studies, and building network models. It's a very dynamic and challenging job, and I enjoy it immensely! The future of the power industry excites me because of the rapid advancements in renewable energy technologies and the ongoing transition towards a more sustainable and resilient energy grid. I am thrilled to be part of the innovations that address climate change and to contribute to creating a cleaner, more efficient energy landscape.
