Water is one of the most important resources for life, yet we have a shortage of clean water throughout the world. Kathleen Chelling explains a revolutionary, new design for fog harvesting using recycled plastics to collect fresh water.

Kathleen Chelling is a recent CSULB graduate. She graduated in Fall 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and with minors in Chemistry and Applied Mathematics. As student member of Engineers without Borders, she became interested in fog harvesting technology and as an undergraduate, she completed the University Honors Program researching fog harvesting to write her undergraduate thesis. Currently, she works as a process engineer for Phillips 66 in Los Angeles. However, most people know her for her love of horses and can often be found riding at the barn or simply playing basketball or volleyball with friends.
