Based in the Philippines, where she currently resides, Darlene will be instrumental in supporting our customers’ technical sales needs, particularly in the areas of Thermal Interface Materials, Fine & Specialty Materials, and Soldering Materials.
Darlene’s journey in the field of engineering began when she moved to Metro Manila to pursue her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering at Mapua University. After four years of dedication and hard work, she not only obtained her professional license as a chemical engineer in 2014 but also showcased her determination and commitment to her craft. She is currently pursuing her Master of Science degree in Energy Engineering at the University of the Philippines Diliman
Her professional journey kicked off in the cement manufacturing industry, where she started as a cadet engineer and quickly worked her way up to becoming a senior quality control engineer. In this role, Darlene spearheaded cost-reduction optimization initiatives, mentored cadets in the company’s training program, and played a pivotal role in achieving IMS certification and documentation. She honed her skills in equipment operation, maintenance, and calibration, demonstrating her versatility and commitment to excellence.
Fuelled by her passion for research and development, Darlene transitioned to academia, where she embarked on a Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Research Project funded jointly by the Philippine Government and the University of California Merced. Her research focused on the development of catalyst materials for fuel cell applications and water electrolyzers. This experience broadened her horizons and deepened her understanding of cutting-edge technologies in the renewable energy sector.
Darlene’s enthusiasm extends well beyond her professional achievements. She is a powerhouse of dedication and discipline, evident not only in her role at CAPLINQ but also in her active lifestyle. With a black belt in Arnis, the national martial art of the Philippines, and a lifelong passion for tennis, Darlene embodies a true spirit of sportsmanship.
When she’s not conquering challenges in the workplace, Darlene can be found immersing herself in outdoor adventures. Whether it’s trail running through picturesque landscapes or trekking up mountains, she embraces the beauty of nature and the thrill of pushing her physical limits. Additionally, Darlene finds solace in reading inspirational, sci-fi, and fantasy novels, transporting herself to captivating realms beyond imagination.
