THE CHALLENGE

 

As part of the Grand Challenge run by CERN and Royal College of Art, I worked in an interdisciplinary team with CERN researchers to find solutions to a series of different global issues, determining the needs of the communities most affected and the key stakeholders that could effect change.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The project was selected as one of the 10 finalists among 74 teams and 374 participants

THE OUTCOME

 

Addressing the issue of water scarcity, together with my team, I developed SeaYarn: a potential low-tech desalination system. It uses natural capillary motion in order to provide affordable irrigation for small-scale farmers in Africa.
