Dr Hayaatun Sillem is used to people asking her where Dr Sillem is – and they’re usually quite embarrassed to find out that she’s standing right in front of them.

Since becoming the first woman to take the top job at the Royal Academy of Engineering, Dr Sillem has charged ahead with her mission to change perceptions of modern engineering.
