Last year I reached out to Professor Raffaella Ocone wondering if she would answer a few questions for me about engineering. The email I sent was completely out of the blue and likely quite cheeky considering how busy Raffaella is!

However, Raffaella took the time to answer my questions and I am so glad she did. She is a truly inspiring, impressive, intelligent and kind woman and engineer – who better to be a representation of National Women in Engineering Day than the one and only Professor Raffaella Ocone.
