I moved to Washington DC to work as an intern for the Jane Goodall Institute. Dr. Goodall is famous for observing tool making behavior in Chimpanzees. I learned about BOINC a year ago after I spent time learning about docking algorithms used in Fight Aids.

Like Chimpanzees, I am making a tool. We aim to computationally screen for durable enzymes in hydrogen production. Our intention is to develop clean hydrogen as a scalable renewable energy. My project is in Alpha development. It is called Hydrogen@Home.

When I finally got to meet Dr. Goodall in 2003, she asked her young idealistic interns to carry giant dove puppets in honor of International Peace Day. Here I am with three lovely ladies in front of the White House.

Do you plan to promote her to the AOTD (Ape Of The Day)? (Or BOTD on other projects.)
