Indian Genes brings to you another remarkable guest whose work has quite literally touched the sky. Roma Agrawal is not your average engineer; she's a visionary, an author, and a relentless advocate for the world of engineering.

You may know her best for her contribution to the design of Western Europe's tallest tower, The Shard, a stunning icon of modern architecture that pierces the London skyline. But Roma's story goes far beyond that towering achievement.

She's a product of two prestigious institutions, Imperial College London and the University of Oxford, where she honed her skills and passion for engineering.

What truly defines Roma is her unwavering passion for promoting engineering and technical careers, especially among those who may face barriers to entry. Her advocacy has earned her international recognition, including the prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering's Rooke Award, and in 2018, she was appointed an MBE for her outstanding services to engineering.
