We met Lisa through Women In Tech events in Auckland that she co-organises 💖 We ended up talking for almost 2 hours on camera about her move to New Zealand from Hong Kong as a child, subtle and not so subtle racism, her passions for math and arts that led to an Engineering PhD, forklift automation, life values, implicit biases, feminism and much more!
We somehow managed to shorten it to 14 min and here is a breakdown of Lisa's interview:
0:15 - Tell us moving to New Zealand and your views on NZ racism?
3:49 - What did you want to be when you grow up?
5:23 - How did you choose your field of research?
5:45 - How did you know what you wanted to do after your PhD?
7:33 - What is your current goal & purpose in life?
8:55 - Do you ever feel like you are not doing enough?
9:56 - Let's talk about something you are passionate about - unconscious bias
12:09 - What makes you happy?
