I am a chemist and teacher and and love to do outreach work. i am passionate about introducing children and young people to science, and spur curiosity in the world surrounding us.

I would like IYC to be an opportunity to create more awareness about chemistry, and the role it plays in our everyday lives. 'Chemicals' have a bad connotation for most people, probably due to lack of understanding, so this should be a great opportunity to educate the public.
