About

My generation has the potential to protect the planet by helping more people to do everyday things differently. For me, that started with how I walked to school.

Hi, I’m Ava!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. I’m a teenager studying for my GCSEs and have also taken on the role of CEO to make an award-winning pin badge available for more people.

At the age of 12 I designed and built the first version of Perfect Sense AQ. That was the start of my journey to help more people turn their own environmental data into information to protect their health, instead of being reliant on information shared by government or other central organisations that isn’t hyper local.

This is still my preferred approach. Unlocking our own potential to understand the world around us gives the right information for our location at that particular moment.

How it started

From meeting the team at the National Graphene Institute in Manchester during 2019, we set out to build an innovative pin badge from my first prototype using nano-sized air quality sensors with location-GPS.

Achievement unlocked!

Perfect Sense AQ has become a dynamic way of mapping air pollution to discover your healthiest air quality route to school or work.

How it’s going

2020 was an incredible year for me. I won the individual prize of the UK Government’s Youth Industrial Strategy competition and UK Space Agency’s SatelLife competition.

In 2021, I was accepted onto the Bridging the Gap programme for SMEs with Graphene@Manchester and this has been an amazing accelerator for my roadmap and development. I was also invited to join the Department for Transport’s Young Green Leaders’ Group and took part in a panel discussion at COP26 in the Blue Zone, UK Pavilion.

Now I’m starting 2022 as the UK Challenge winner of Galileo Masters, which means I’ll be working with the specialist team at GRACE from University of Nottingham to help me embed GNSS into the pin badge.

Perfect Sense AQ was also chosen as one of the 6 companies that judges selected for the Galileo Incubator Programme. This year then, I’m continuing to develop the pollution sensor and pin badge with the team at Graphene@Manchester and moving on with GNSS integration. 2022 is about everything coming together!
