Ava first developed the idea for Perfect Sense AQ Ltd in winter of 2018. As the impact of air quality on our health was being talked about and scientists were mapping walking routes and levels of pollution, the realisation struck that everyone should be able to access data relevant to their commute. So without meaningful air quality data available on her way to school, Ava built her first portable, pollution-sensing device. That was the start of her journey to help more people to get hyperlocal air quality data to understand the air around them and protect their health.
Today she is combining her role as CEO of Perfect Sense AQ to make an award-winning pin badge available for more people and studying for A levels in Leeds. In addition, accelerator programmes with Graphene @ Manchester and Galileo Masters support the innovation journey with GNSS and advanced materials specialists.
