Kevin Kung, currently a Cyclotron Road entrepreneurial fellow, earned his Ph.D. from MIT (2017), focusing on biofuels and renewable energy. In 2012, he co-founded a company that turns agricultural residues into carbon-negative fertilizer (Safi Organics). This led him to recognize the technical challenges in this sector, and he continued to work on the biomass technology. He also co-founded the MIT Waste Alliance, which convenes students, researchers, industrial practitioners, and policymakers around waste-sector issues. Kung received his A.B. in physics from Princeton University, and M.S. in physics from University of Cambridge.
