ETHOS welcomes PhD student Kanaha Shoji
Kanaha Shoji, a new PhD student, joined ETHOS in February 2023.
Kanaha is an EPFL graduate (SIE, 2020) who enjoys traveling, exploring new art and architecture, and learning the differences in various cities. That curiosity brought her to ETHOS at Smart Living Lab. Before joining the lab, she was a research engineer at Simulating Biological Systems (SymBioSys) group at Empa, the Swiss Federal Research Institute. There, she worked on digital twins of fresh produce. She also upcycled various datasets to understand the existing systems, mainly the fresh produce cold supply chains, and to make them more optimized, thus, reducing food loss and waste.
At ETHOS, she looks forward to applying and developing her data analysis skills to discover the relationships between humans and the built environment. Her primary focus will be walkability in cities. She is excited to elaborate on this topic and find ways to make humans neighborhood more sustainable and livable.
