Margarita Maniati

2017/18 Fellow

Margarita originally comes from Greece but she moved to the UK in 2000 to complete her MEng in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London during which she also spent a year studying and working in renewable energies research in Paris. She has had a really varied career, ranging from civil engineering consulting to project management and subsequently management and Cyber Security consulting and technology audit in the Financial Services. She is also a professionally trained and accomplished dancer, choreographer and actor.

Over the last few years, a combination of personal experiences and world events has led her to become more and more passionate and actively engaged in activities and organisations promoting impactful social change and innovation as well as strongly inquisitive about finding the most effective ways in which she can create positive and sustainable impact, which is what led her to become a Year Here Fellow.
