Meghana Rao attends Jesuit High School and spoke to President Obama about Biochar in the 2013 White House Science Fair
From Tom Miles:
John Miedema and I have been mentoring her biochar projects for about three years. She did her basic research as a high school freshman at Oregon State University under Dr. Markus Kleber with a graduate student in soil science. She won regional competitions and went to the nationals in the Intel Science competitions as a Freshman. She presented that work in Kyoto in 2011 and at Sonoma 2012. That is also the work she described to the President.
Last summer she did an internship at the Joint Bioenergy Institute at Berkeley. http://www.jbei.org/
