Maira Bana

CFD Manager, RED Engineering Design, Trustee, SheCanEngineer

Maira leads RED Engineering Design's global Computational Fluid Dynamics Team. She’s been working in the data centre industry for over a decade, following her degree in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London.

After becoming Chartered with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in 2017, Maira looked for a technical volunteering opportunity (to accompany her STEM outreach work with schools), and was welcomed into the Institution’s Construction & Building Services Division (CBSD) to bring a voice to the data centre industry. She has been co-chairing the division since 2021, and sits on Council and Technical Strategy Board.  

Maira is a trustee of SheCanEngineer (, a charity that encourages girls into Engineering and highlights the roles and achievements of women in the sector. She joined the SheCanEngineer initiative in 2018 as a volunteer, and went on to chair the committee for two years. She and her fellow trustees registered the organisation as a charity in 2023. This is a subject close to her heart; she is passionate about raising awareness on the power of diverse teams and inclusive environments.
