John Futhey is a physicist with a specialty in optical design, living in Santa Rosa, California, USA. He is the designer of the Crossed Mirrors Cooker. With this design he was looking to keep the high efficiency output of parabolic solar cookers, but employ simpler construction methods, not requiring the typical compound dome shapes.
He spent four years living in rural Nigeria, and recognizes the need to match the design of efficient solar cookers with the local manufacturing capabilities of developing countries. He wants to focus his efforts on projects intended for these local markets.
