Academic adventures at CMU-Africa

November 02, 2017

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Scott Hall, Marquis Conference Room 5201

In this talk, Associate Professor of Engineering and Public Policy Paulina Jaramillo will discuss her experience spending the 2016-2017 academic year at the CMU-Africa campus in Rwanda. Her seminar will include an overview of her experience teaching the MS students in Rwanda, as well as some of the research she started while in Kigali. Such research includes working with mini grid developers to build better demand models for rural customers after they first gain access to electricity, as well as deploying air quality monitors that will help CMU research better characterize Kigali’s air quality and air pollution sources.

This is a free event that is open to the public. Lunch will be provided following the seminar.
