I am postdoc researcher at the North West University of Potchefstroom. I am working on finding new platinum based catalyst for hydrogen production using sulfur dioxide and ammonia electrolysis.

I would like to bring IYC 2011 in my university because here the students are enthusiastic about science in general and its power to change the world.
