​I began my career in the tech industry working for a social media company. My interest in recruitment started in 2022 when I joined the contracts desk working in the power industry. I’m passionate about doing meaningful work, which led me to discover my love for helping people find jobs. Over time, I have developed strong relationships with candidates and clients alike, and my passion for renewable energy has only deepened my commitment to my work. I’m always looking to explore my journey in recruitment and her dedication to helping individuals find fulfilling careers in the renewable sector.

Areas of Specialization

I specialize in Renewables & Infrastructure Investment (APAC) at NextWave Partners, specializing in renewable energy, energy transition, sustainable infrastructure, offshore wind, digital infrastructure, and utilities. With clients in the energy industry, ranging from utility suppliers, management consultancies, developers, asset managers, and technology companies. My expertise lies in helping global infrastructure funds and their platforms establish entities, invest and build successful teams and projects across the APAC region. I recruit across the end-to-end value chain of renewable energy projects, working with infrastructure investment banks, private equity groups, legal counsel, project developers, independent power producers, engineering services firms, EPC companies, construction contractors, and equipment suppliers, with a focus on solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, bio-energy, and waste-to-energy technologies. Additionally, I have expertise in mid to senior hires and provides regional coverage in Asia in data science, data analytics, machine learning, business intelligence, and business analytics.

My Thoughts on Energy Transition

I am passionate about the impact of climate-tech, clean-tech, and sustainability tech on our daily lives. The growth of the renewable energy market over the past 10 years has been fascinating to witness, with Europe leading the way and Asia following closely behind. As we transition towards renewable energy, I am excited to be a part of the movement towards a net-zero future and a sustainable economy. In addition, as data science is still being defined, I am thrilled to be part of its growth in Asia and to help talents and clients identify the best solutions to excel in the industry. I strongly believe in supporting industries battling climate change and playing a role in creating a better and more sustainable future.
