"I have always been fascinated with the relationship between modern human-made technology and ecology. Chemistry can create a lot of problems, such as pollution. However, chemistry will also provide the solutions to sustain our modern way of living, even for basic requirements like food, clothing and shelter. For me, there’s only one way forward: to use science to sustain a balanced and healthy world."
