Managing Frugal Innovation: the Challenges of Humanitarian Engineering

 
Frugal Innovation is a strong trend in humanitarian engineering, as it is based on the idea of using less resources. However, managing frugal innovation can be a challenge in impoverished areas. In this talk, we will discuss these challenges and present some ideas on how to overcome some of the problems.
 

SPEAKER: Prof. Silvia Figueira PhD, Director of the Frugal Innovation Hub, Santa Clara University

Dr. Silvia Figueira received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, and her Ph.D. degree also in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego. Currently, she is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University. Her research is in the area of performance evaluation and prediction, recently with a focus on energy efficiency. She is also the director of the SCU Frugal Innovation Hub, in which she leads the Mobile Lab and advises students working on mobile applications for under-served communities and emerging markets.
