Roma Agrawal is a Structural Engineer at WSP, and has designed bridges, sculptures and skyscrapers – most notably London’s Shard.

Roma is an amazing advocate for getting girls interested in STEM subjects and careers.

“When I look in the mirror, I often see my eyebrows raised up. And lots of people have told me that when I talk about science or engineering my eyebrows go up, so all my passion and energy goes straight in there!”

Roma was one of Marks and Spencer’s Leading Ladies in 2014, and is also now an ambassador for the Your Life campaign. She has even presented a TEDx Talk on Engineering!

WISP caught up with Roma from her London offices, where she shared with us what she sees, what she wished she’d known at school, and of course her passion for science!
