Heba Studied electronics and computer engineering (hon), receiving a first for her final year project on robotics visualisation. Upon graduation she worked as a CPU (central processing unit) engineer for the microchip design company ARM. After being an integral designer of the ARM Cortex processors, which is found in virtually all mobile phones in the world today, she moved to another role in ARM as a technical sales engineer. Heba went back to The University of Cambridge (Jesus College) to do her PhD in low power wireless sensor networks, it was during her PhD that Heba founded UtterBerry. 5 years on Heba has multiple patents to her name in a wide range of fields from manufacturing and engineering to Medicine and Sensing. Heba has won many awards including the Digital Innovation Award from CIOB in 2014, The Construction Excellence National Award for Innovation in 2015, and two NCE Ground Engineering awards. Heba has been awarded an OBE for her contributions to technology, innovation, and STEM education 2018.
Heba is the CEO and founder of UtterBerry Ltd. UtterBerry is a patented intelligent wireless sensor system which works on extremely low power. Fitting in the palm of the hand and weighing less than 15 grams, UtterBerry sensors are the smallest and lightest wireless sensors in the world and are also the first to employ artificial intelligence. Despite their size, they work to sub-millimetre precision, measuring multiple variables; collecting and interpreting data at the source and transmitting information in real time.
