Personal Statement
Wood is the world's most promising natural composite material. Undoubtedly, if we studied wood and clearly understood its formation & growth; its use and engineering potentials (like we understand the human body), we could've been living in a more sustainable and advanced world especially in the areas of energy (biofuels, black liquor..), construction (automobile, aerospace, buildings..), pulp & paper and bio-chemicals among others. This is apparent as prospects for great improvements in these areas continue to fascinate researchers with their increasing, yet transmogrifying studies and results on Wood and other lignocellulosic biomass. Action Research is my passion. I believe if anything has the potential of augmenting our knowledge, promoting creativity & innovation, informing decision making & leadership and/or improving living standards, then its worth RESEARCHING! Generally, I envision a people who live and pass-away with no purpose-residuals.
