Humanitarian of the Year Christina Galitsky on finding solutions to environmental problems
Christina Galitsky is Technology Review’s 2006 Humanitarian of the Year and one of this year’s TR35. The Lawrence Berkeley Lab scientist employs her training in chemical engineering to find solutions to environmental problems in the U.S. and abroad–particularly in poor countries such as Sudan and Bangladesh. She spoke to us recently about how seeing her innovations in action inspires her and what kinds of problems she hopes to work on in the future.
Galitsky and the other 2006 TR35 winners will be honored at this year’s Emerging Technologies Conference at MIT.
