Krystina Pearson-Rampeearee

My name is Krystina and I am a Chartered Engineer in Liverpool working as a Senior Flight Systems Engineer. I studied Aerospace Systems Engineering at university, after being inspired by an airshow when I was in school, and became the first engineer in my family.

As a Senior Flight Systems Engineer, I am involved in the whole life of equipment within a system; from development, to going on aircraft, to support once in service. My role is a collaborative, multidisciplinary role and I enjoy all the different aspects I get to be involved in. Since returning from maternity leave in 2019, I have been working in the Future Combat Air System team on a next generation fast jet, the Tempest project, researching technologies for the future.

I volunteer as a STEM Ambassador and mentor and also set up my own business, AviateHer, selling accessories to promote diversity in STEM. As there was a lack of visible females when I was studying and early on in my career, I am passionate about encouraging and inspiring more young girls to consider STEM careers and push past those gender stereotypes!
