To tackle sustainable, resource-efficient water management and food production ­— two pressing global issues in today’s world — AUC’s Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment (RISE) and Princeton University recently partnered on a summer internship program to test mechanical, wind pumping options for agricultural and non-agricultural water.

The program, funded by the Bartlett Family Fund for Innovation and International Collaboration, was headed by principal investigators (PI) Tina Jaskolski, assistant professor of sustainable development at AUC’s School of Sciences and Engineering and associate director of research at RISE, and Lamyaa El-Gabry, lecturer at Princeton’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), with 11 students from both AUC and Princeton working collaboratively.

I personally learned a lot. I got the chance to see many projects that actually help sustain the environment. I never really knew that it would be very beneficial in reality.
