hello everyone, its about time i introduced myself i think :p

im currently taking my O-lvls this year in s'pore, and i find most of the discussions held here far out of my league, but im learning much nevertheless :)

ordinarily i couldnt learn very much in classroom as im abit hard of hearing, and one day when i was googling around and found this site, i also found someone else from my country too and decided to stay here.

Hello,

I'm Wilco and my age is 39 and I'm from the Netherlands. I have a family with two children.

I've studied electronics and information technology at the University level and have done scientific research in the field of mechatronics and control theory. After receiving my PhD in mechatronics (ten years ago) I switched career from science to business. Currently, I'm working as a software engineer and software architect for enterprise solutions. My main task at the moment is a mix of consultancy and writing software in C and C++. I'm quite succesful at software engineering and applied mathematics and that is what makes me have a good earning. I have no formal education in chemistry, but I've read quite a lot about it in books and on the internet.

Besides my work, I'm also member of the board of one of the local churches in the place where I live. I love to do that work, although sometimes you come accross sad things happening to people.

I like my work, but at an amateur level I still like to be busy with science. As a young child I already was playing around with all kinds of materials in and around the house and my interest in science never has faded. In the course of the years, however, I have become much more careful and some things I did as a young boy I certainly would not do nowadays anymore.

At the moment, I do chemistry, pure mathematics and photography at the somewhat more advanced hobby level. Unfortunately there is no more time left for more than hobby-level science, when you have a family and a full-time job.

I came accross this site approximately 2 weeks ago and since then I watched it frequently and I posted some messages on it. I watch this site with great pleasure and I hope to post more contributions to this site in the (near) future.

hello then

i am an indian, currently pursuing an undergrad in chemistry in delhi university. If everything works out, i should be doing my PhD somewhere closer to where most of you are

my primary interest lies in organic chemistry. if i ever get the chance, i would like to work on the sense of smell, which i find very intriguing...have ideas and theories up my sleeve that i dont care to relate for fear pf plagiarism, and, well, to prevent sheer embarassment to myself.

chemistry confession i must make: i find JACS bloody intimidating. hope to be good enough to figure things out someday.

over and out.

I already posted a few things, but Mitch told me to come over here and introduce myself anyways.

So, how's life?  That's good.  I like university...chemistry is good.

I'm going to be taking a few good ones in the fall, like Inorganic, Chemical Kinetics, Computational Physical Chemistry and Spectroscopy of Organic Compunds (all 3rd and 4th year courses).  That, and a biochem course.

Life is good.  Don't ever forget that.  If life ISN'T good...make it better :)

Cheers, and I'll talk to y'all later!

Hey there, I'm Qazzian. I've checked these boards a few times when looking for help with something, but decided today to join.

I'm taking undergrad biochemistry at the University of Waterloo. I enjoy long walks on the beach and romantic moonlit nights. Call me ;)

Hi all, I am Grejak, a 23 year old female from Pennsylvania.  I obtained my bachelors at a small college there in chemistry with a focus on inorganic and analytical.

Currently I am beginning my second year as a grad student at UC Berkeley/LBNL, working in the same research group as Mitch.  So, he is the one who introduced me to the forum.  Anyway, I am working on obtaining my Ph D in nuclear chemistry with a thesis on solution chemistry of dubnium (element 105) and (hopefully) hot fusion with plutonium targets :).

oh,  sdekivit, you teach at a secondary school at your 17 age ? Oh I can not believe it, sorry... But it's true, you are really good.

I am 16 and from Vietnam. Sorry, I don't like Chemistry more than Maths (though I am not good at Maths very much  ;D).  But I enjoy out forum. Here, I can improve my English as well as my chemistry. Thank to all here.

Im Eric from Southern California.  I am 19 and a Junior at the University of California, Riverside and am a Chem major.  I am head of an ACS chapter and am currently doing research with scanning tunneling microscopes in high vacuum chambers at 20K.  I have taken graduate classes in advanced instrumentation and spend lots of time designing and building sensitive analytical equipment.  The machine shop is my friend.  I took AP chem in high school and after getting a 5 on the test and finishing 1 hour early decided to persue as a major.  I dont intend to be a chemist though.  Surgery is my path.  Maybe i can help answer some questions with physical chemistry and high vacuum systems...

Hi,
I'm Anton.  I will be a senior in high school in Huntsville, AL this year and taking AP Chemistry.  Currently, I plan on completing my senior year and getting a scholarship through National Merit to the University of Alabama and start a long education in the field of medicine or biochemical engineering.  I look forward to being able to find help here when I can't work through problems myself.

Hello All:

I am nathan from Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I am in the process of returning to school to attend Med School after practicing physical therapy for 8 years.  I was at first very hesitant to start chem classes at school because of a bad experience with it in high school.  I took one class of college level Chemistry and have loved it ever since.  I am taking my first Organic Chem class this year and have been lurking around the O Chem forum.  I am really impressed with the website and glad that I have found it.  I really hope to learn a lot from all of you.

Thanks
