Who are we?
The SWAG-Team was founded when students from the University of Applied Sciences Zürich (ZHAW) participated in the first IGLUNA campaign in September 2018. Today, the team consists of seven third-year Bachelor students in Natural Resource Sciences and one System Engineer.
Environmental Engineer | Lab Scientist | Entrepreneur
Philipp founded the SWAG-Team in September 2018 and successfully built the prototype of the SWAG-System with former team members. His experience in the field, as well as his openness to criticism, makes him the perfect team leader. Next to his leadership role, he is responsible for the overall system, communication and sponsoring partners.
Environmental Engineer | Electrician | Entrepreneur
Remo is the technical specialist of our team. He has a broad knowledge regarding light and lighting appliances, electronics, programming and more. His experiences in the field are a crucial part of the team for taking final decisions. Moreover, he always finds a way to optimise the model.
Edmée is responsible for the website, communication and accounting of the project. Together with Stefan, she is also partly responsible for the experiments with different plant species and fertilisers. With her enthusiasm for plants, she never lacks ideas and creativity to bring the team a step forward.
Environmental Engineer | Gardener
Stefan has a broad understanding of plants and fertilisers. He is responsible for conducting experiments with different plant species. His straightforward way of thinking and being a perfectionist makes him a great addition to our team.
Samuel is responsible for programming the sensors and making sure that all the measured data are being transfered and projected on a screen. His experience in the field has been the perfect addition to our team.
Sarah & Michael Blickenstorfer
Environmental Engineer & System Engineer
Sarah and Michael are siblings who are responsible for the air managment of the system. With an expert in the IT field, and a specialist in system management, these two fill in the missing peaces of our team. They never lack ideas and bring our project forward.
Lukas is responsible for some of the CAD model of the system. His skills are crucial to accomplish our project in time and to plan everything ahead.
