Hi! I am Stefana Ciustea, a current Sophomore at the University of Washington. I consider myself a well-rounded person with many passions, ranging from medicine to engineering to atmospheric sciences to neuroscience to dancing, and beyond. I believe that all fields of knowledge are connected, and the most successful inventions are ones that combine ideas and skills from different fields on knowledge. I would love to use my creativity and my varying skills in a team filled with people that hold different passions, in order for my team and I to come up with an innovative product or service that will help the environment.
Before coming back to school to pursue my Masters, I spent four years in Daimler Trucks North America. A Michigan native, my first job was as a forensic metallurgist in the warranty claims division of Detroit Diesel, Daimler's engine facility. I then decided to take a life adventure by moving to Portland where I worked as a Liaison in the Western Star truck manufacturing plant. I have numerous contacts in the trucking and automotive industries. I'm on this website looking to network with other students in the business and economics disciplines. A primary motivator for attending UW was to change career trajectories to sustainable and clean-tech industries.
Interested in bioengineering, environmental engineering, or medicine-related projects. I have some experience in R, java, python and app development.
A senior majoring in Informatics with concentration in Data Science in University of Washington. I enjoy working on complex projects and coming up with efficient solutions working both in Information Technology and Business fields. Self-motivated, performance driven with deep interest in web technology and business, and with a passion for learning anything new. I have experience both working in a team and individually, enjoy being a project manager mostly because of my good time management and social skills.
Our project creates a living indoor commercial growing system to feed urbanites, replacing vast amounts of the land, water, fuel, and waste found in traditional farming and food transport systems. The current system for growing food in North America uses vast amounts of land, creates tons of waste, and burns millions of barrels of fossil fuels transporting food from farms to supermarkets. Traditional farming uses millions of gallons of water, an increasingly precious resource. Also, this system is vulnerable to weather that cannot be controlled but has the power to destroy a season of crops in a short period. Our solution is to move some crops much closer to the source of consumption, using far less space to do so, by creating an indoor hydroponic vertical growing system that is not dependent on soil or sunlight, is not subjected to weather changes, and requires little or no transport. Because our system keeps the crops alive until they are consumed, there is little waste because, for example, a head of lettuce that’s not eaten today simply grows for another day, staying fresh rather than spoiling. We can grow eight or more heads of lettuce per square foot of horizontal space using highly concentrated, energy-efficient LED lights to deliver the exact spectrum of lights required for green leafy vegetables, and not wasting energy by producing other unused kinds of light. Also, our system also uses just 10% as much water as traditional growing methods.
We aim to provide a sustainable, profitable solution to retail food waste by converting it to a natural fish feed for the aquaculture industry and developing software to formulate optimal animal feeds based on user input of their food waste at hand. Our project addresses two environmental problems: large amounts of retail food waste end up in landfills, and the primary basis of fish feed is currently small species of fish whose populations are threatened.
Remember eating Otter-pops when you were a kid? What if there were otter pops for adults? Well, there are! North Polez are alcoholic Otter-pops for adults. You might not think alcohol can freeze but believe it or not there are several ways to "freeze" alcohol. In fact, 3 North Polez (57ml tubes) would contain as much as 1 shot of 100 proof liquor. Google search "Alcoholic Ice Cream" and you'll find several companies selling pints of alcoholic ice cream. However, most of these products either contain very low concentrations of alcohol or are expensive. Otter-pops, on the other hand, are cheap and come in bulk boxes. Staying true to this business model, North Polez would come in bulk boxes, be cheap, and targeted towards young adults. Step aside Jell-O shots, North Polez are here.
I have over 14 years of work experience in in the tech industry working on scalable services and security and patient management software. I have degrees in Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering and I am currently pursuing an MBA at UW.

The DASO Soccer Smart Wall is a rebounder with lights that tell you where to kick and sensors that analyze performance. We currently determine speed, accuracy, and rebound control time and we are looking to integrate trajectory and the user's distance from the Smart Wall when striking the ball. This information is calculated into a score that is displayed for the user next to their training session countdown timer. We will use this information to create detailed training histories of player development. With enough players we can put their scores online to create an online hub of training, scouting, and competition. We have two prototypes we are demoing for relevant players in the northwest soccer community - All-American Nate Boatright has said "It kicks a**! I'd recommend it." Most notably we have a demo with the President & CEO of Starfire Sports, the home of the Seattle Sounders and the epicenter of soccer in the northwest. We have patent pending status and our current survey data shows players giving the unit a 4.9/5 stars. For more information go to www.soccersmartwall.com

Battery technology will enable greater penetration of renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and other energy efficiency solutions. However, battery testing infrastructure used for research and product development is both expensive and compromised by 15-year-old software packages. The limited functionality of these data processing tools wastes time. Therefore, manufacturers cannot catch defects in time. For Samsung and its Galaxy Note 7, this failure has been a $17 billion liability!

While in the Foster School of Business Evening MBA Program, I work for the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health as a Senior Program Manager. I focus primarily on health systems strengthening interventions in Haiti including clinical mentoring, health information systems for improved patient care and health workforce development. Since I served in the Peace Corps in West Africa, I have been compelled to make health systems work better: to serve more people, more efficiently; to provide a better quality service; and, to ultimately improve health outcomes in low resource settings. I have worked at different levels of implementation: from directly interacting in the local language with the communities served to working for the donor and informing strategic funding decisions. These experiences have enriched my approaches to health systems management and enabled me to understand the impact of programs from multiple perspectives. I have seen health systems fail patients unnecessarily due to inefficient services, poor management of staff and resources, and lack of protocol. I am driven to preventing needless suffering and death through innovated health delivery models, better planning and management, and patient advocacy.

The problem(s): 1) Since there is a lack of storage solutions for marijuana stuff, most people still keep their marijuana smoking items in random things like mason jars, tupperware, and shoeboxes. 2) When people first start smoking marijuana, they have difficulty figuring out what it is they need to buy. The solution: StacheBox is a customizable carry-all stoner's starter kit. You select the pipe, grinder, lighter, and jar that fit best to your needs/budget. It becomes a better value buy when you buy everything together rather than separate, and it is also a aesthetically pleasing and convenient way to store all of your stuff.

SafeFlame aims to tackle a glut of high profile issues effecting people in developing nations. First among these is the potent issue of indoor pollutants. Globally, more than 3 billion people cook using biomass (wood, animal dung, crop waste, or charcoal). The indoor pollution created by burning these fuels results in over 4.3 million deaths annually with deaths particularly high among women and young children, who spend the most time within the home. Additionally, many of these solid fuels are gathered in an unsustainable manner by local communities causing severe deforestation. SafeFlame’s service – which we call an untethered utility – is provided through biodigesters which SafeFlame technicians install directly into customers’ households. These digesters, which are serviced regularly by the team, break down organic content to produce biogas which customers can use to prepare meals on a standard gas cookstove. “Think of it like your water heater at home”, says CEO and current Foster MBA student Kevin Cussen, “Someone installs it somewhere in your house and as long as you pay your electricity bill you reap the benefits of hot water. Once we install a digester, all our customers need to do is pay their bill and they have access to clean burning gas at the turn of a knob.” Those interested in learning more or getting involved are encouraged to check out SafeFlame’s Facebook page or reach out directly to Kevin Cussen at kcussen@safeflamellc.com!

As the world progresses towards a primarily digital age, the ability to digitize material is more and more in demand. To create an accessible way to digitize documents, our team has developed a printer/scanner. When the PrintaScan is attached to the apple case, it has an elegant look that would complement any mac laptop. The PrintaScan looks much better than the average large box-like printers that one would see in a house, because we allow the user to create their own "skin" [all external sides of the device]. A competitive advantage is that the device is less than .65-inches thick. No other device in the entire industry can print or scan and be as small as ours. Having a portable printer and scanner would solve any problems someone may encounter while traveling, or if a college student needs space in their dorm. Lastly, we can print and scan notes and convert them automatically to a word document. We need the funding to develop this software and build the product’s hardware.
