Project lifecycle: case studies and lessons learnt - industry report writing

Updated: Sep 14, 2023


THURSDAY 14 SEPTEMBER, 10:30am 12pm

Join us for this collaborative Industry Seminar hosted by ARC ITRP for the Global Hydrogen Economy and Chemical Engineering Research Society.

The seminar entitled "Navigating Sustainable Futures: Exploring Chemical Engineering in Project Lifecycles through Decarbonization to Water Sustainability" will be presented by Alex Varvaris and Sharon Wong from Aurecon.


Alex and Sharon will be presenting on the role of the chemical engineer and the ‘project lifecycle’ - where they will step through real life engineer-design case studies ranging from decarbonisation to sustainable water projects. Using these case studies, they will be introducing and describing different types of reports needed for these projects and sharing lessons learnt along their journeys.

Speakers biography:

Alex Varvaris is a Senior Process Engineer at Aurecon who provides engineering and leadership expertise across the water, energy, and sustainability industries. He is a chartered engineer and an AGSM UNSW MBA candidate who has several years of experience working within multi-national consultancies, utilities, and not-for-profit environments – where has a proven record delivering complex projects, building partnerships and driving sustainable and equitable outcomes across Australasia. Aligned to his passions for sustainability and resiliency, he has led the delivery of a variety of projects aligned to positive outcomes of climate change resilience, inequality and sustainable development goals.

Sharon Wang is an associate at Aurecon, leading the process systems team in NSW. Sharon graduated with a degree in chemical engineering from UNSW 10 years ago. She then spent a year in research before securing a job with GlaxoSmithKline where she spent 3 years doing process safety, maintenance, validation and projects. As the site announced to shut down, Sharon moved to ANSTO working on nuclear medicine. Later on, Sharon joined engineering consultancy where she gained extensive design and construction experience in water, defence, building, power and resource industry. These cumulative experiences have strongly shaped her pragmatic approach as both a designer and project manager.
