Roy Thomson Hall presents
As a child, Kakani Katija dreamed of being an astronaut. She trained as an aerospace engineer but eventually became captivated by an even less explored environment than space: our Earth’s oceans. As a bioengineer, instead of searching space for signs of life, she studies the waters that are teeming with it. Katija hopes to illuminate the twilight zones of the ocean—its little explored midwaters—with technology inspired by the creatures who live in it.
