I am a Marine Science and Microbiology double major, minoring in leadership and aquatic fisheries here at the University of Florida. In the future I plan to pursue a PhD in Marine Science, I plan to conduct research on marine organisms defense chemicals to utilize for medicinal cures. I would also like to conduct research on coral reef restoration, specifically restoring reefs from coral bleaching. I am twenty years old and from Daytona Beach, Florida. I love anything active, outdoors, and that involves adventure. I have a desire for traveling and emerging in different cultures. I am passionate not only for people but our planet and all of the variety of life that thrives upon it. I think it important for each person to take their part in saving this world, big or little we all make a difference. So if I contributed more today than I did yesterday then I am doing alright. I want to make a difference and inspire those that will too. One of my goals in life is to make a lasting impact not only on our current civilization but our world. This innovation combines chemistry, physics, and engineering to create a potential filter device that can help decrease green house gases to a normal healthy state. The goal of my invention would be to reduce the green house gas layer back to a normal healthy state that would promote optimal conditions for life on earth.
