Dylan Barratt (right) and Willem Bonnaffé (left) are part of a team of co-founders at Cinderella Smart Ports, a new startup focused on developing digital and artificial intelligence (AI) tools to assess and minimise the negative impacts of weather on port operations. The initiative began by winning the AI Impact Weekend 2020, an artificial intelligence competition at the Oxford Foundry, and the team has since joined the startup incubator of Oxford University Innovation (OUI).

St Cross has provided valuable support by introducing the team to a mentor, David Scrymgeour, and offering to host an event about the initiative. Dylan and Willem look forward to continued engagement with the St Cross community while addressing the exciting challenges of the global shipping industry.
