We sat down with Rina Osmani, our new Graduate Innovation Engineer, to find out about her work experience, what she likes about the EIC so far, and why Marie Curie would be one of her top dinner party guests!

Please can you tell us about your role at the EIC?

As a graduate innovation engineer, I work with innovators and network partners to facilitate innovation.

Can you tell us a bit about your engineering background?

I graduated with a Physics degree in 2020. Graduating in the middle of a pandemic made it difficult to find a job in my field and in the industry, so it took a while but I’m here. In the meantime, I worked in a school! 

As my first job in engineering and industry I’m really enjoying it here, because I have a passion for sustainability and reaching net-zero and at the EIC we work towards a net-zero future. 

What is your biggest achievement?

Honestly, not tripping over while going to collect my award during graduation! 

What is your favourite thing about working at the EIC so far?

My first thought is how amazing the team are! They are all very supportive.

If you could invite anyone (living or deceased) to a dinner party, who would you invite and why?

I think because I’m a physicist I would have to invite at least one and that would be Marie Curie. My second invite would go to Mother Teresa, she’s a role model I think people should look up to. Third… Elon Musk, because I admire his success!
