I am on the Irish IYC steering committee, and have been active in developing extra activities in the ICI (Institute of Chemistry of Ireland) for 2011, to celebrate the International Year.

I have also been involved in SciFest since the first competition in IT Tallaght in 2006, and help organise the Tallaght competition each year (2011 Tallaght SciFest scheduled for Tue 10 May).
