Who are we?

Gabriela Masfarré

Economist passionate about social sciences.

l am keen to discover the youngest and most rhythmic continent in the world.  On our trip, I am most looking forward to learning about how different social contexts influence the adoption of new technical solutions. Previously, I’ve worked as an innovation consultant with Ideas for Change for four years and in the fields of micro-finance and social business in Bangladesh and Albania with Yunus Social Business.

William Maize

Civil engineer passionate about the environment. 

I hope to broaden my understanding of the nexus between development, infrastructure and the environment, with particular focus on how technology can be an enabler for decentralized, citizen-led initiatives. I also can’t wait to catch up with old friends in Zimbabwe! My professional experience covers civil engineering project management, design, and construction, and I most recently worked with a leading market research firm covering digital water technologies and global municipal water markets. I hold an P.Eng and a MBA.
