The Materials and Corrosion Engineer for the Shell Middle Distillate Synthesis (Shell MDS) plant is steadfast when it comes to taking a firm stand on what one believes in because for her, this will take one far in life.

Born in Miri, to a father from an engineering background and a mother who was a Mathematics teacher, her interest for technical roles was derived from her family surroundings. Daphne started her journey with Shell through the Shell Graduate Programme (SGP) and is currently enrolled in the Shell Advance Technical Programme (SATP).

Daphne’s role as Materials and Corrosion Engineer includes providing materials and corrosion support to the Asset on activities related to metallurgy, welding, fabrication, inspection and corrosion control, in adherence to material selection and corrosion standards and procedures.
