Senior, Cornell University; Founder, AgCure
Broadcom MASTERS 2013
Teevyah is a Senior at Cornell University and Founder of AgCure. After immigrating from a small farming village in Malaysia, Teevyah’s passion for agriculture reignited during her middle and high school years. A Broadcom MASTERS and 2x ISEF alum, she discovered that farmers were losing billions to prevent crop loss, directly increasing food prices worldwide. In response, Teevyah discovered a flaw in the soil classification system farmers utilized and developed AgCure – a computational system that advises farmers about the alterations they can make to their soil. Her innovations have led her to be named the National Girl Innovator, a Global Teen Leader, a NCWIT National Award Winner, and more.
