Dr Sohini Kar-Narayan, Reader in Device & Energy Materials, has been named one of the 2021 Top 50 Women in Engineering: Engineering Heroes (WE50). These awards, which are overseen by the Women's Engineering Society, showcase the hugely diverse, rewarding and varied career options engineering offers.  

Sohini says some of her happiest childhood memories involved taking apart cassette players and VCR recorders, and that curiosity is what drew her to her current role. Her research has involved developing novel polymeric materials for harvesting energy to power health monitoring devices and integrating materials into versatile sensors. She has been working on developing “self-powered” devices for patients to help improve their healthcare.

Congratulations Sohini!
