YULINI AREDININGSIH BIOGRAPHY

Yulini Arediningsih has a background in hard rock geology and experience working in the geothermal and mineral industries in Indonesia.  Since the economic collapse, which hit Alberta hard in 2013, Yulini had to face a bitter reality – that of being unable to land her dream job as a Geologist in Canada.  Yulini was committed to continue on; She managed to navigate a path into the role of a Data Analyst, a significant departure from her previous experience in the geosciences. 

She has kept connected to the geoscience community through her volunteer efforts with GeoWomen of Calgary, and through the Calgary Regional Immigration Employment Council. Yulini now has almost 7 years of experience working for oil sands operators and pipeline companies in the areas of Asset Management, Maintenance and Reliability.  Yulini continues to pursue her passion for geology and renewable energy as it relates to geothermal resources, lithium and the mineral industry.
