Q&A with Kym

What is your current role and responsibilities at Mipac?

Senior Process Engineer, I’m responsible for helping Mipac’s clients optimise their production processes typically within mineral processing.

Can you describe what a typical workday looks like for you?

A typical day is data analysis, design client engagement, concept generation, process control and functional description developing, documentation, commissioning, and general support. It’s always a mix of understanding the plant design, plant targets and mixing/adapting systems with consultation, technical expertise, and operational experience.

Why did you choose to go into your current line of work?
