One Community is happy to feature and thank Amauri Tavares as our most recent member of the Mechanical Engineering Team. Amauri spent the last two months working on the heat recovery system for the laundry room in the Duplicable City Center.
Bachelors of Science and Technology and 4th-year Aerospace Engineering Student: Amauri is an international student from Brazil who recently attended California State University, Long Beach. He is sponsored by the Institute of International Education (IIE) and Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (Capes) in a program called Science Without Borders. Amauri is focused, reliable, hardworking, always trying to improve himself, while also making a difference in the world. He believes that knowledge is useless if it is not shared and applied for changing the world. Amauri is an author and co-author in several scientific research projects focused on deployable truss structures applied to aerospace engineering. He also worked on a team where the goal was to study the biochemical structure of proteins and apply the knowledge for biomedical engineering, focusing to develop new materials for fire-care treatments. Amauri additionally worked on a team where the goal was to study the biochemical structure of potatoes and apply the knowledge for materials engineering, focusing to develop biodegradable plastic bags. He’s volunteered as a teacher’s assistant in the Easy Way School of Languages in Ibiúna, São Paulo, Brazil and, during that time, he also taught a basic English course to kids and was responsible for applying and grading tests for all English course levels. As a member of the One Community team, Amauri modeled and calculated the specifics for the heat recovery/recycling systems for the Duplicable City Center eco-laundry and large-scale sustainable kitchen.
