Longtime fan of nanotechnology. It's the ever-expanding crossroads between physics, biology, chemistry, and mathematics. My dream is to see nanotech become a thriving industry that benefits the planet and humanity. Also passionate about applied physics. Love learning about public speaking and music. I recently received my M.S. in physics from UC Davis, and now am perusing a PhD in materials science at SUNY Stony Brook.

Global implementation of the Integral Fast Reactor (IFR). It's considered the most likely successor to the currently-used water reactors in nuclear power. Why? It utilizes nuclear waste as fuel. We have enough 'waste' to last us for decades. See the book "Prescription for the Planet" by Tom Blees for more information.

I've watched many TED Talks on the web over the years, dreaming of being there in person. Michael Shermer's talk on baloney detection comes to mind, along with a speaker (can't recall his name) that spoke about the increasing irrationality of the American public. I never dreamed I'd go to TED due to the steep price, but I'm lucky enough to know a sponsor, so here I am. First-time TEDster.
