Delhi, The Taj, and Rajasthan

I've moved to Delhi as part of the International Innovation Corps, a yearlong fellowship that places American and Indian young professionals into Indian public sector institutions to work on scalable solutions to social problems. I'm working with Central Electronics Limited, a state-owned solar manufacturer and the first domestic manufacturer of solar cells and module in India. My team is focusing on building a rural electrification program with an emphasis on smart solar microgrids. I've been here Since mid-July, but between finding an apartment, getting over the culture shock, and settling in at work I haven't had time to post photos. The photos below are from around Delhi, a visit to the Taj Mahal, and a field visit to Rajasthan I made for my work. I have at least three blog posts worth of photos in the pipeline, so keep your eye out for more photos coming soon!

India's Electricity Challenge
An unelectrified home within sight of a high-voltage transmission line in Purkhawas, Rajasthan. The high cost of connecting smaller villages to the grid has left many homes in the area without electricity.

Not Just Gothic: The Glassy Side of the University of Chicago Campus

The University of Chicago is known for its ivy-lined buildings and gothic architecture, but next to the University's iconic quads lies an expanse of glassy modern buildings. From the University of Chicago hospital to Manuseto library, the newly-developed areas surrounding the quads stand in stark contrast to the center of campus. These photos portray the lesser-seen side of the University of Chicago campus, where glass and steel replace ivy and gargoyles. Enjoy!
