Beiha, a scientist and mine closure specialist, develops mine closure plans for the industry. Her experience in four states across Australia and previous roles in government, consulting, and the mining industry sets her apart: she has been on ‘both sides of the fence’ and has a holistic understanding of challenges faced in the mine closure and rehabilitation space.
The best thing about her job? Opportunities to work on a diverse range of projects in interesting and unique environments in Australia.
A stand-out project for Beiha was working on a decommissioning plan for a tailings storage facility. Given the complexity of these facilities, developing the plan was a great opportunity to work with other subject matter experts at Stantec.
Outside of work? Her husband Ian and two dogs—Samson and Serendipity—are good company and are helping her rediscover her hometown of Adelaide. Japanese writer Haruki Murakami is one of her favourite authors and she knows nothing about sport!
