British presenter Shini Somara effortlessly transforms the complex world of cutting-edge science and emerging technology into fascinating primetime television.

(BBC2); and most recently on "The Health Show" on BBC World News.

After her first degree, Shini spent 4 years working full-time as a mechanical engineer, whilst completing her doctoral thesis by the age of 25. 

Whilst working she was so inspired by the latest developments in science and technology that she felt she had to communicate them to a wider audience and hence side-stepped into TV to figure out how to do this.

Shini worked in television production for several years as a researcher, producer and editor for production companies such as Oxford Scientific Films, Windfall Films and Films of Record before turning her hand to presenting. Shini currently now applies every skill she has collected along the way, to produce and present short inspiring films on the latest science and technology that affects our everyday lives as well as reporting on terrestrial TV channels.

Behind the camera, Shini is still involved in various engineering projects, but also has a number of other achievements including a degree in classical ballet from the Royal Academy of Dance; a qualification in aerobics instruction and yet she's still found time to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and dabble in the world of fashion as a model.

In any of Shini's endeavours, there is always a constant theme — a desire to discover and understand the world around her, and to share and enthuse others with her findings!
