We continue our celebration of Women in Geothermal with a feature on Alice Kim – Outreach and Digitization Coordinator / Hawaii Groundwater and Geothermal Resources Center, Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, at the University of Hawaii at Manoa
Alice is quoted, “Our team’s multidisciplinary and multicultural approach benefited the Hawaii Play Fairway project, a statewide geothermal resource assessment. My supervisor Dr. Nicole Lautze hired students, staff, and faculty of different backgrounds (e.g. different ethnicities, cultures, and academic fields) and promoted an inclusive, open-minded, and civil work culture. As a woman born and raised in Hawaii with Korean ancestry from a non-science background, I have always felt that my contributions and opinions were valued in this project. As stakeholders of geothermal energy in Hawaii are diverse, we must sensitively consider multiple opinions, perspectives, and solutions to forward groundwater and geothermal research in Hawaii.”
Alice, we appreciate your contributions to the Hawaii Play Fairway project and the geothermal industry as a whole.
Many thanks to Patrick Hanson and Geo Energy Marketing Services for featuring Alice!
