      Best thing, if it all works perfectly, will be new treatments for infected wounds or cancer. Not a cure for cancer, but a treatment with fewer side effects. If it doesn’t work perfectly then we will have learned a great deal and can design something that will work perfectly.

      I hope that I can develop a material structure that captures as much sunlight as possible to provide a clean energy pathway for hydrogen fuel.

      Hopefully, I can find or make microalgae better at capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In this way, levels of carbon dioxide will be reduced and global warming will be slowed down.
