I am a junior at Princeton High School taking a research course that allows students to design and execute their own research project. Science and math have always been my favorite subjects in school. I am especially passionate about chemistry as it explains the minutia of how everything around us works. Materials science is a more recent passion of mine because of its practical applications. Because there is more and more concern about humans' impact on the planet, I am interested in how my two favorite science subjects can be used to contribute to saving our planet.
