Abstract

Every minute, a child under the age of five dies from diarrhea, while another child dies of pneumonia, Thomas begins his somber yet uplifting talk. These aren’t problems to be solved in hospitals, but through changes in the way developing countries get clean drinking water and cooking fuels. Huge sectors of the world drink tainted water and cook with wood. Thomas, a PSU engineering professor, explores his work to distribute and monitor simple but effective water filters and cookstoves to millions in Africa.
