  • John Feighery



    I am a water researcher and social entrepreneur based in New York City. Prior to working in the international water sector, I was a NASA engineer for 11 years, developing and managing equipment to monitor the air and water quality for astronauts on the International Space Station. I left NASA to pursue a PhD in Earth and Environmental Engineering at Columbia University, where I conducted research on contamination of shallow drinking water wells in rural Bangladesh. My research involved collecting and mapping water quality data, laboratory measurements of bacteria transport through sediment, numerical modeling, and geospatial analysis of water data. In 2011, I posed a challenge to the global Water Hackathon teams to create a water quality app that could read test results using the camera on a mobile phone and a team from Montreal won our hackathon by creating a working prototype. Following on this success, the team created mWater, a non-profit organization that combines low-cost water technology with mobile phones to monitor and share water quality data. mWater recently released a free app for Android mobile phones and completed a field trial for UN Habitat in Tanzania. Did I mention I worked at NASA?
    Why I give a sh*t: The number one cause of unsafe drinking water in most parts of the world is contamination by sewage due to inadequate sanitation.
