Company: Nano-Lit Technologies
Nano-Lit’s mission is to produce revolutionary lighting products that improve health and wellbeing. Nano-Lit is a Quantum Dot technology company that delivers next-generation lighting solutions, which enable improved colour purity, higher energy efficiency, flexibility, and lower costs. Nano-Lit uses the trademarked technology of a Smart Diffuser and a Sensor, as well as a Data Platform and a Mobile App as the vehicles for the delivery of the next-generation lighting solution.
The intern, working with partner R&D staff, will use the data platform to gather, analyze, synthesize and visualize data trends and to investigate the quantitiatve connections between the nano- engineered lighting sytem and optimal human health and productivity. The data analytics will inform and support both the partner’s engineering and marketing streams as well as provide a larger research purpose of scientific knowledge transfer towards understanding the connection between nano-engineered lighting, using quantum dot technology, and well-being.
- Design, create and evaluate a moving data-set with information from the Nano-Lit Smart Diffuser nano-engineered lightingsystem that is programmed to automtically update trend anlyses and data visualizations
- Use the data to investigate and write evidence-based articles about the benefits of the product for health and well being and in the larger research arena around Nano-Technology and health
- To be determined
Expertise and Skills Needed:
- Data collection and analysis
- Expertise in nano-technology and/or envrionmental health
- Strong technical skills
