BDC Students Present Their Projects to the President of Tatarstan

Students from the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow presented their BDC 2019 projects to the president of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnikhanov.

Anna Budnikova, winner of BDC’s 2019 Outstanding Science Award, focused on the karst ravine in the city of Kazan in Tatarstan. Her project proposed using fungus to mineralize karst’s calcites and produce limestone as a way to structurally reinforce karst soils and mitigate the collapse of roads and settlements in areas where sinkholes are common.
