Hello! My name is Katrina Lee. I currently attend California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo as a 1st year, majoring in Environmental Engineering.
I fell in love with nature at a young age through gardening. I was amazed by the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals. I envision that Earth will continue to be a habitable environment for all living things, therefore my goal is to help make sustainable living more accessible to the public and protect the environment from anthropogenic harm.
Since joining Engineers Without Borders in October 2019, I have collaborated with the Nicaragua group to build a tank for the small town of La Rinconada. Our current designs feature a reinforced concrete tank connected to a pump that extracts groundwater from a well. We are working to get our plans approved and carried out by the end of the year.
While my repair skills are limited to basic household repairs, I am eager to learn more through the iFixit project. By working on the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga repair guide, I am glad to be contributing to iFixit’s effort of reducing e-waste in landfills and 3rd world countries.
