I love researching and implementing what I learn + designing projects on Figma (a program used primarily for prototyping) so here are a few of the projects I've worked on!
Twillica: The All-in-One Jacket
We've been wearing clothing for 170,000 years. And yet, we've made almost no significant progress in the field.
So alongside Jolie Li, Sora Shirai, and Klara Zietlow, we created Twillica to revolutionize the clothing field using a combination of carbon nanotubes, and shape memory polymers.
Increasing Female Digital Employment In Senegal
Even though 35% of urban Senegalese businesses are women-owned, 75% of women work in the informal sector.
So along with Aliya Ojuade, Soliana Fikru, and Sora Shirai, we created a plan to use a platform, Selle, to formalize and digitalize the jobs of these women.
Increasing COVIDaware Minnesota App Adoption
My team (Sofi Sanchez, Sakeenah Ajayi, Klara Zietlow) and I did lots of research from taking a look at studies to reaching out to people living in Minnesota to gain an understanding of how to increase the use of a COVID-19 contact tracing app created by the PathCheck Foundation.
We created a slide deck outlining 3 approaches for how to increase adoption rates of the digital contact tracing app in Minnesota to 50%.
Armadillo: Teaching Elementary Students the Necessities
Manasi, Anh, Orna, Sakeenah, Sriya, and I came up with Armadillo, the all-in-one platform for young elementary students to learn about social and physical health outside of in-person school.
