“My career is focused on combating climate change effects by innovating renewable energy technologies. I am horrified to see how unsustainable human population growth is causing the environment to rapidly deteriorate around us. This leads to effects including pollution, deforestation, water contamination, animal extinction and natural disasters. I chose to become a materials scientist because I want to have a broader, interdisciplinary knowledge to make a positive impact on the world by solving some of these issues.” – Sabrina M. Curtis
