Climate change is real and I want to be part of the transition to renewable energy and a net zero 2050.

Who am I

I was born and raised in New Zealand as your stereotypical Asian kid who was good at maths and science so it's no surprise that I thought engineering would be a good career for me. I moved across the ditch in 2022 to begin my studies at the University of Melbourne where I'm currently a third-year electrical engineering student. I am also gaining valuable industry experience working as a Student Assistant in the EPC team at European Energy Australia. In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer and solving Rubik's cubes.

Why I chose a career in power

As the future generation, climate change is a pressing issue that we need to act on. I've always had an interest in renewable energy and wanted to work in an industry that has a positive impact on the world. With the push for net zero by 2050, it couldn't be a more exciting time to work in the power industry.

Where it all started

I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Science / Master of Electrical Engineering and I plan on specialising in Low-Carbon Power Systems. I value the flexibility of the "Melbourne Model" at the University of Melbourne as it has allowed me to study other interests alongside electrical engineering, namely chemistry and finance. I joined European Energy Australia during the summer of 2023 which is my first job within the power industry. Prior to this, I have had a few different non-power-related jobs which have helped me develop my soft skills.

My work experience.
What's next?

European Energy Australia develops, constructs and operates large-scale renewable energy farms. In my role as a Student Assistant in the EPC team, I support our Grid Connection Manager with connecting our projects to the grid and am learning a lot about everything that goes on behind the scenes. I have also had the opportunity to help out on the financial side too which is another area I am interested in. The power industry is rapidly evolving with new technologies and new challenges associated with the transition to renewable energy. There are new things to learn and new problems to solve so it is very exciting to see what the future holds and whether we can get net zero by 2050.
