I’ve had the good fortune to travel often and have lived in 15 different places over the course of my life. Most recently, home is in Örebro, Sweden, where I work as a Global Applications Specialist in Mine Electrification and Automation at Epiroc. In this role, I assist underground mines all over the world in optimizing their operations for novel electric and autonomous mining equipment, and bring a customer focused mindset to new technology development in Epiroc’s underground division.

I graduated with my BSc in Mechanical Engineering at Olin College of Engineering in Boston in 2019, where I focused on interdisciplinary communication and project management, and minored in Geology. Following that, I attended Colorado School of Mines, graduating with my MSc in Earth Resources Development Engineering in 2021.  During my studies, I interned with TE Connectivity, Resolution Copper Company, and Komatsu (in both their surface and underground divisions). I’m also heavily involved in industry forums, and am an active member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration; Women in Mining, and the Young Leaders Committee. I am extremely passionate about technological advancement and diversity and inclusion in the mining industry.

Outside of my professional and academic life, I am a classically trained pianist and I enjoy handicrafts including gemstone cutting, blacksmithy, silversmithy, carpentry, leatherwork, and sewing. I also love to hike and am an avid caver and martial artist. Please feel free to check out my other website, if you would like to see some of my craftsmanship.
