Erica Estrada-Liou is a master at developing brilliant solutions that transform the lives of the least fortunate. In her one-hour Meet the Maker session, Estrada-Liou will give her inside view of how “design engineering” can tackle some seemingly intractable challenges in underserved communities.
Estrada-Liou is the co-founder of d.light design, a social enterprise that provides affordable light and power products to people living off of the electrical grid. She is the co-founder of the Stanford Social Entrepreneurship Lab, which uses human-centered design to alleviate poverty and related social issues, both in the United States and abroad. And she developed and taught Design for Change: Poverty in America, in which students designed solutions to improve services for people experiencing homelessness.
