My Journey

Where it all started for me

I had passion for renewable energy since early stages of my career. ever since I have been on auto navigate in my career journey of renewable energy. Absorbing opportunities and potentials on the way, a scholarship from UNSW to pursue my studies in power system analysis in high presence of renewable sources came my way and I grasped it immediately as it felt so right and aligned with my journey goals.

What did I end up studying?

Studied at University of New South Wales

Entering the industry
