Roma Agrawal, is a structural engineer with a physics degree. She has always loved science and design and found engineering to be a great combination between the two.
Roma has designed bridges, skyscrapers and sculptures with signature architects over her ten year career and spent six years working on The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe, and designed the foundations and the ‘Spire’.
In addition to winning industry awards, Roma’s career has been extensively featured in the media, including on BBC World News, BBC Daily Politics, TEDx, The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, Guardian, The Telegraph, Independent, Cosmopolitan and Stylist Magazines, documentaries and in online blogs. She was the only woman featured on Channel 4's documentary on the Shard, 'The Tallest Tower'.

Outside work, Roma promotes engineering, scientific and technical careers to young people and particularly to under-represented groups such as women.
