Mark Yen
Mark Yen, Technical Advisor Mark was a part of MIT's D-Lab Development program, and after studying development projects and their successes and failures, he traveled to Tanzania in January to work with a number of organizations, including medical clinics, schools, and orphanages on a variety of projects, which ranged in category from water to education to appropriate technology. While in Tanzania he saw a need for reliable access to electricity, which led to his involvement with EGG-energy. A student in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Mark has also been involved with MIT Global Poverty Initiative, a student group that aims to raise awareness about global issues that play into the poverty cycle, and Moca, a project that brings quality health care to rural areas by enabling remote medical diagnosis via an application for mobile phones.
