I'm currently undergraduate in Chemistry, with the goal of becoming a researcher in Theoretical Chemistry. My major interest in the IYC 2011 is to increase the public understanding of Chemistry, a branch of the human knowledge that doesn't receive the deserved attention or appreciation.

I have an idea of promoting the IYC 2011 in the univesity I study with what is called a Academic Week, where the students, and the local community, could gather to learn more about our field.
