Hi, Dr. Matyas – thanks for taking time to share your knowledge today. In your bio/intro you mention your two broad research goals – what sorts of breakthroughs do you hope to glean from the rain fields data? Do you envision this work impacting policy decisions, and/or enabling officials to make more accurate assessments on evacuation orders, especially when considering one topographical region to the next?

I imagine you get many questions regarding "The Martian" (or similar books/films), and whether it's an accurate portrayal of the work in plant molecular biology, but I'm curious to know if there were any pieces of literature – non-fiction or even sci-fi – that inspired you to pursue your career in science?
