I have been working on research projects related to carbon dioxide sequestration. I have experimented with a different scenario related to underground storage conditions. The results of these experiments are published in a very reputable high-impact factor journal. My long-term plan is to serve the technical community to develop low-emission technologies (such as hydrogen storage).
