EETD Researcher Wins Fulbright to Work on Stoves in India

Danny Wilson, a graduate student researcher in EETD, has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to work on the design of a culturally appropriate low-emission cookstove for north India. He will test emissions in the lab and field, and will facilitate user needs assessments via recursive user feedback. This project will take place as part of a partnership between UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab and IIT Delhi. Persistent exposure to cooking smoke kills 420,000 Indians annually, making cooking smoke India’s third highest cause of premature death behind malnutrition and unsafe water. Wilson is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley.
