How did you get into your current field?
The signing of the Paris Agreement in December 2015 was a huge milestone in the global efforts to combat climate change. I had a feeling that this event could be an inflection point that would change the industry forever. The energy transition from fossil fuels to clean energies would become inevitable. I threw myself at it—trying to understand every aspect of this fast accelerating megatrend: rapidly developing clean technologies, policy and regulation, investor and consumer preferences.
What has you most excited about the future of your profession?
I am excited about opportunities that lie ahead for the oil and gas industry in the clean energy sector. Oil and gas companies are facing a Herculean challenge of having to adapt to the global energy transition. I’m delighted that we’re helping clients find the most suitable decarbonization solutions that fit their skills, competencies, and long-term strategy.
What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Or, what advice would you give young women looking for a career in your field?
I would definitely have more belief in myself and my ability to do my job. I’d be less scared about taking on new opportunities and challenges. I would love to see more girls take sciences and go into tech jobs. My advice to young women looking for a career in this field: Go for it—it will be an exciting, interesting, and rewarding journey. There is nothing to be scared of—just believe in yourself!
