Throughout my time in university, I’ve worked on many different projects, from data visualisations to energy to programming. Here’s a few highlight projects from my time in university.
LEED Design for a Brazilian Building
During my time in Brazil, I visited a city in the south called Curitiba, that is known for being one of the most environmentally sustainable. I was tasked with the project of helping improve the sustainability of Curitiba. My team and I decided to take the project very locally, and we met a manager of a hotel nearby. We interviewed him and asked him several questions about his hotel and we received a tour as well. This meeting provided us with enough information to generate an analysis for making the building meet the standards for LEED certification as well as enough information for a cost analysis for ROI.

Mobile Hybrid Power System
For my final project in university, I built a mobile hybrid power system. This system takes in energy via a solar panel, and then distributes it to an electrolyzer and a battery. The electrolyzer takes pure distilled water and seperates the hydrogen from the oxygen molecules in the distilled water and pumps it to a fuel cell. The fuel cell works as a battery, with pure hydrogen as its energy source. The fuel cell then works in tandem with the battery to provide power to a load, such as a phone, lights, etc. The system is portable and installed on a cart, so it can be easily transported and shared. The use case for this system was for small villages in Tanzania. A picture of the system and presentation can be found below. The presentation can be downloaded here as well as a detailed written report.
