Sia Shin

After my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley in Environmental Economics and Policy (minor in Public Policy), I started working as a Project Coordinator at a Solar Energy company for six months in California. Since then, I moved to Seoul from California and started working as an Energy & Climate Change Consultant at a Climate consulting firm for about one and a half years.

In my academics, I was awarded a scholarship from Imperial College Business School and accomplished all projects successfully during my climate change consultancy career. As well as that, I was promoted to Project Manager level from entry-level position within six months at the Climate Change consulting firm. In my personal life, I’m very proud that I became a happy and positive person after overcoming depression and hardships I had faced in my life.

I want to become an expert in Carbon Financial Mechanisms at an international organisations such as Green Climate Fund. I wish to contribute to developing new carbon financial markets in order to alleviate climate change issues and eradicate world poverty while also creating a new paradigm of climate change in economics.
