CREATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SMART FRIDGES
As part of my summer internship at PA Consulting, I worked alongside a chemical and mechanical engineer to prototype and test a concept for a fridge that uses a modified atmosphere generated by membrane filtration for the ripening and preservation of food.
Research & Insights
My role in this project was to focus on packaging the technology developed by the engineers to make it desirable for consumers and offer input to improve the user experience. The whole project was heavily focused on sustainability; tackling food waste, reducing consumption of plastic packaging and trying to reduce energy inefficiencies inadvertently caused by users.
