Meet NTU's Professor Eiman Kanjo

Professor Eiman Kanjo is the Head of Pervasive Sensing and head of the Smart Sensing Lab in NTU’s School of Science and Technology. Eiman researches topics including mobile sensing, edge computing, data science and technology for wellbeing.

Under the leadership of Eiman, her team has won the 2021 Vice-Chancellor’s Outstanding Researcher Team Award. In addition, she has been part of a growing effort to remove the obstacles faced by Arab female students and co-founded a nonprofit organisation, Arab Women in Computing. She is also a panellist for Athena SWAN – an initiative that aims to improve the numbers of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) – and board member of the Lifeboat Foundation.

Eiman said: “My hope is that engineers and technologists, female and male, play a more prominent role in shaping the world’s future. We design and develop systems that respond to local communities’ needs and we work hand in hand with end users’ organisations to understand what we can do. I am so grateful to WES for this award, and to my family and my late father who always believed in me and encouraged me to be the engineer I am. Also thank you to all the people who have supported me over the years, including my brilliant Smart Sensing team and colleagues at NTU, without whom this would not have been possible.”

The Top 50 Women in Engineering awards, sponsored by Ball Corporation, showcase the diverse range of skills and talent displayed by female engineers. 

“Once again, the Women’s Engineering Society is delighted to celebrate the achievements of women engineers,” says Elizabeth Donnelly, the society’s Chief Executive. “It’s a joy that so many innovative women are making a difference to our everyday lives and working to mitigate the impact that engineering has on the environment.”

“As a company that is taking huge strides in creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce, we couldn’t be more proud of sponsoring the UK’s top 50 women engineers, as we understand the impact these amazing women make on the world we live and work in,” adds Lauren Touré, diversity and inclusion manager at award sponsors Ball Corporation.
