Hi, Mehmet!

Thank you for your suggestion!

I think that I will need to describe some concrete goals, and provide 
some evidence from literature that the area includes, or is related to, 
particular scientific and engineering challenges. I will take a look at 
related papers about this, but any thoughts on it would be welcome!
