I am currently engaged in three projects. 1. An electrolysis method of water for use as fuel in a closed-loop internal combustion engine. 2 A method for the intensification of the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide. 3 A study of the adaptivity of various plants in the soil on the land of an abandoned industrial plant.

I believe that the general population takes chemistry for granted due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of our field. The IYC is an incredible opportunity for us to educate the public and make chemistry as accessible as possible to everyone.
