She has also worked on the Cawse and Murrin Murrin laterite nickel projects.
At Cawse, she was part of the design team and spent about 10 months on site acting as a construction and commissioning engineer.
Ms Chen spent two years employed by Anaconda Nickel at its Murrin Murrin nickel plant. Her main role was to provide design and construction assistance.
