Role

Liina is a video producer for the Ri Channel, creating short and long form videos for existing and new audiences.

About

Liina grew up in Estonia, dabbling in voice acting and television production before moving to the UK to study Biological Sciences at the University of Oxford. She joined the Royal Institution in 2014 via a rather circuitous route which among others involved managing a subtitling company, building a talent management department for a media company, and running the production arm of an online video platform dedicated to bringing philosophy to the masses.

Scientific inspiration

As most kids I absolutely loved cartoons when growing up (actually still do!) but my all time favourites are The Why Why Family and The Magic School Bus. For me they had the perfect balance of science and entertainment, encouraging me to always be asking questions.

Favourite demo

The Supersaturated Sodium Acetate demo. 

Best thing about the Ri

The vast array of different projects happening at any one time both between teams and within. With a day that starts with 3D scanning a head and finishes with creating LED light graffiti, there is very little not to love.
