TECHNOLOGY AS INTERACTIVE TOOLS BETWEEN PEOPLE.

ADDRESSING  INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE COMFORT: Olatunbosun Obayomi for BMW Guggenheim LAB.
This short video produced by BMW GUGGENHEIM LAB TEAM shows how Nigerian microbiologist Olatunbosun Obayomi draws inspiration from the city and its systems, and his thoughts on how these systems can address individual and collective comfort.

According to BMW GUGGENHEIM LAB, Obayomi’s research spans hydrogen biogas reactors, ecological engines, and microbial fuel cells. He is the founder of Bio Applications Initiative in Lagos, which focuses on the production of energy from organic waste, using green biogas technology to solve pressing needs related to energy supply, food production, and sanitation in the developing world. Obayomi has produced simple biogas plants for converting paper, animal, and human waste into energy. He has also retrofitted a conventional septic tank into a biogas plant. A graduate of microbiology from Olabisi Onabanjo University in Nigeria, Obayomi is a member of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). He was a TEDGlobal Fellow in 2010 and a TEDIndia Fellow in 2009. His efforts have been celebrated in Nigeria as well; in 2008 he was honored with the Nigerian Youth Leadership Award, presented by LEAP Africa.
