Grace graduated from the University of Sydney with First Class Honours in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Throughout her studies, Grace assisted with research on biofuels, completed her thesis in Saudi Arabia on water desalination, worked at Australia's only nuclear reactor, and is now employed by one of the world's largest energy companies. Grace has also been an active volunteer in the community, leading a local StreamWatch team and completing a sustainable engineering project in India. These experiences have led Grace's passion for addressing the world's climate challenges through decarbonised energy systems.
