I am an undergraduate at Dublin City University, I am in my second year, and I am studying pharmaceutical and chemical Sciences course (AC2-Applied Chemistry). I am an active committee member of DCU rock climbing club and Class Rep for AC2 I also enjoy seeing how technology is developing to help people with learning disabilities, as a mild dyslexic I didn't have much computer aid in school but worked along side my friend as an alpha tester for his ANKI style flash card learning system, which he developed to aid people with leaning disabilities.
An idea worth spreading
An ANKI style flash card learning system, really helps anyone to lean and study, from people with extreme leaning disabilities, to people who achieve high grades because of the amount of study and time they put in. After testing such a system, I believe governments and educational bodes should help fund and develop theses systems so every student, at any level of education can take advantage of this easy leaning system.
I'm passionate about
Chemical sciences, specifically organic chemistry and environment issues , research in this area and using resources we have more efficiently , I also enjoy studying Physics and astrology
Talk to me about
chemical sciences, specifically organic chemistry and environment issues (may need help in as i am only starting to learn about theses things in University) and technology, speclising in computers
People don't know I'm good at
I am a semi-Pro photographer and have been for the last few years, i strive to learn new techniques in both the shooting of the photographs and the editing after them.
My TED story
My brother TED Fellow Damien Palin , introduced me to TED in late 2011, i strive to find out more in chemical sciences and especially organic chemistry, as this is now my specialised area of study
