          • 2015 Resonate Award Winner Joel L. Dawson


            from Resnick Sustainability Institute Added

            Resonate Award recipient for innovations solving key power challenges in the cellular communications industry. Joel L. Dawson is the CTO and co-founder of Eta Devices, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company in Cambridge, MA. Eta Devices spun out of Joel’s research at MIT, where he was an Associate Professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science until 2012. This work is the conduit for his Resonate Award winning work in mobile power architecture, which drastically reduces the energy inefficiencies laden in radio communications. Joel received his S.B. and M. Eng. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford. Upon graduation, he co-founded Aspendos Communications, a fabless semiconductor company that was acquired by Beceem Communications. As a MIT faculty member, Joel received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2008 and was selected for the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2009.

            • 2015 Resonate Award Winner Mika Järvinen w/ Collaborator Arshe Said


              from Resnick Sustainability Institute Added

              Resonate Award recipient for pioneering a CO2 sequestration process that converts a low-value steel-manufacturing by-product into a valuable resource for industry. Mika Järvinen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Energy Technology at Aalto University and an Academy of Finland Research Fellow. His team’s Resonate Award winning process sequesters CO2 by mineral carbonation using steel slag (a by-product of steelmaking) as raw material. Järvinen’s Doctoral student Arshe Said worked as the main researcher on this project. Using waste slag and CO2 flue gas as resources, the team’s process yields high valued precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC), which is useful to many industries. Järvinen is a graduate of the Department of Energy Technology at Lappeenranta University of Technology. Prior to his postdoctoral studies in the Aalto University, he worked at the Ahlstrom Machinery Corporation as a research engineer. In addition to carbon capture and storage by mineral carbonization, Järvinen’s group researches biomass combustion, circulating fluidized bed gasification of waste, and advanced modeling of industrial processes, mainly for energy and metallurgical applications.

              • 2015 Resonate Award Winner Delia Milliron


                from Resnick Sustainability Institute Added

                Resonate Award recipient for leveraging nanomaterials to improve the carbon reduction capabilities of smart windows. Delia Milliron is an Associate Professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and a fellow of the Henry Beckman Professorship. Her Resonate Award winning work explores how nanomaterials can enhance energy technologies and lower their costs. By embedding nanocrystals in electroresponsive glass, she was the first to demonstrate that smart window technology could be made that independently controls heat and light coming from the sun, which can save energy and optimize thermal comfort in buildings. Delia received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, and later worked for IBM’s research division and for the Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, where she served as the Director of the Inorganic Nanostructures Facility and later as the Deputy Director. In 2012, she co-founded Heliotrope Technologies, a start-up company developing smart window technology.

                    Deep Listening is the third in a series of Living in the Future films about sustainable living in community. Following on from Ecovilllage Pioneers and Lammas, which explore low impact buildings, permaculture gardens and off grid homes, Deep Listening looks at how we connect with each other, how we make decisions, how we resolve conflict. Of all the skills whic help us tune to land, to ourselves and to each other, Deep Listening is perhaps the most profound and the most useful. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/deep-listening-dadirri
