My name is Michael Pappoe. I am currently a PhD candidate in Chemistry at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada.

My research interest is in application of analytical chemistry to the environment and industry.

My particular interest in IYC 2011 is in making chemistry relevant to the public and particularly young people who may not understand the relevance in chemical systems and the vast areas of application of chemistry.
