Tell us about your role…
I joined Natural Power’s at the beginning of 2016 to assist the Product Development team with the design and implementation of the Benchmarking and Performance analysis services. In July 2016 I joined the Analytics team, where I do operations and performance analysis for active wind farms and assist the team with pre and post construction energy assessments. I continue supporting the development and delivery of the Natural Power’s Benchmarking data services and when I have some ‘free’ time I find myself digging down in our methodologies and procedures to identify where and how we can improve them.
No. of years working in renewables:
What first interested you in engineering in the first place?
Maths and physics were not my biggest strengths when I was in high school, but I realised that I would gladly spend an afternoon solving problems instead of memorizing battles, dates and kings names. I am curious by nature and a problem solver interested in practical things. When I had to decide which career to pursue, science and engineering seemed the most exciting, but I was not sure if it was the right choice for me. Probably some people telling me I couldn’t/shouldn’t go that way encouraged me to do it and prove them wrong, challenge accepted! Science and engineering have given me the tools and foundations to understand my environment as a whole and find a job where I can have a positive impact on it.
What aspect of your job do you enjoy the most?
The team and the time dedicated to innovation and development. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by very knowledgeable people who are passionate about what they do. We have a great team atmosphere, we help each other and I get to learn a lot from all of them. I also enjoy the time I get to spend on innovation and development when commercial work is finished, it feeds the creative part of my brain and allows me to put my 5 cents on the renewables success.
Who do you look up to and why?
I do not have a unique role model. If I had to make a list it would probably never be complete. I get inspired by attitudes that make people shine, whether it is, how knowledgeable they are, how they deal with difficulties or how they interact with others.
