How would you describe your role and responsibilities to friends or family?
I lead a technician team who provide technical support in different kinds of projects.
I am mainly responsible for building up the models, (i.e. Hydraulic, CFD) and I am faced with solving different challenging and technical problems every day.
What has been your favourite Mott MacDonald social event?
‘Hong Kong Sports and Social Club’ is formed by a group of staff from different departments which hold lots of social activities and events for staff and their family members. I am one of the committee members and have been for the past two years.
Among the activities, the annual dinner is the most memorable event for me. It was the first time I was involved in organising such a big event. And I was happy that I won a big prize in the lucky draw!
If you were to live anywhere, where would it be?
My answer is Taiwan! It’s not as densely populated as Hong Kong and has a mild climate with nice people. They speak Mandarin and use the same language as us and Taiwanese respect the natural environment. They have organic and good food. Next to the Chinese delicacies, I like their hot springs and night markets!
