2013 International BioGENEius Challenge winner, Rena grew up on a hobby farm where she learned to love the world around her. This translated into her passion for school science fairs and later, her interest in soil research aimed to improve food security across the globe.
As a member of Engineers Without Borders, Rena is part of a team of volunteers working to bring clean drinking water to remote areas of Peru.
Science truly touches all of us—it is used to treat our drinking water, grow our food, design our transportation systems, keep our bodies healthy and care for the planet we all share.Share
