Rocket Science and Frugal Innovation

Dr. Amani Salim, Assistant Professor, International Islamic University Malaysia

19-Aug-15 15:00

Rocket Science and Frugal Innovation

Doing more with less, like low cost airlines and discount supermarkets, sounds like a good idea but must quality be sacrificed for affordability? Our guest today says absolutely not. Dr. Amani Salim is a big advocate of frugal innovation and is assistant professor of biotechnology engineering. She was previously the Principal Investigator to NASA’s SporeSat. We ask her more about that, as well as rocket science, space biology and frugal technology.


Dr. Amani Salim was a speaker at the 2015 TEDxKL.
