Hi! I am Joseph Kocaj, the Teaching Assistant to the 2018 Global Innovation Field School. As an alumni of the 2017 Global Innovation Field School I will do my best to aid this year's students in finding sustainable solutions for our friends here in Ileret, the Daasanach. I could not be more excited to be back with the ever-inspiring professor, Rodrigo Peña, and five new faces. My work improving communities through engineering based methodologies began when I co-founded CentriSeed Innovations, an organization which juggles developing students and communities much like the Global Innovation Field School. I recently graduated from Stony Brook University and will be working under H2M architects + engineers as a Water Engineer after my stay in Kenya! I am truly excited to work with the year's students and hope to teach them as much as I know they will teach me.
