My motivation for much of what I do in life comes from two places: a desire to help other people, and a love for the outdoors. Naturally, this has led to a desire to reduce the impacts of climate change, both to reduce the suffering of other people and to minimize damage done to the environment. This desire is reflected in my research, where I am currently working in clean hydrogen production by methane pyrolysis in order to find ways to switch over to cleaner full sources. I’m also working on high temperature energy storage to ensure the stability of renewable energy, and I’ve previously worked on projects in biomass energy and flood prevention. My work aligns with my intention to do what I can to help other people, and I plan to continue this for the rest of my life.
