I come from China. Following in my parents' footsteps, I pursued my degree in water engineering. After completion of my Master of Science in Engineering in 1998, I worked in the Ministry of Water Resources P. R. China for nearly three years. This experience fostered my interest in Water Resources Management.
After arriving in Australia in 2001, I wanted to branch out, beyond my qualification to tackle some wider subject matter. As I know, Australia has a high level of qualification in environment protection and environment management. So in 2002 I enrolled in the program of Master of Environmental Law, Management and Business in the Australian National University. During my study, I had also worked as a research assistant to undertake water quality analysis and associated research activities in the Integrated Catchment Assessment and Management Centre.
With my enthusiasm for the environment and my strong desire to contribute to the natural resources management, the Department should be the logical choice for my career development. I applied for the Graduate Program to ensure a smooth transition into my new role in the Australian Public Service. I was fortunate enough to be offered a position and I am absolutely excited. I will take advantage of this precious opportunity to learn as much as possible.
