I am a Chemical Engineer with a particular interest in Green Chemistry, Cradle to Cradle design and learning about how nature's systems use chemistry to solve problems and meet the challenges of survival.

I would like to see the IYC 2011 promoting green chemistry as a career path for young people so they see the role they can play as we restore our natural environment and still enjoy abundance.
