Piecing together the fossilized remains of animals and the details of their lives and environments, millions of years ago, is a challenge that, for me, never gets old.
I have always wanted to lead inspiring expeditions to the Arctic as I believe it is one of the greatest classrooms on Earth.
I have always wanted to explore the microscopic world to discover unseen life forms and to study the scientific stories they can tell us.
Plants and their ecosystems, humans included, interconnect in countless fascinating ways. From food and health to art and literature to sustainable development, history and national identity, the fundamental roles plants play has always intrigued me.
Exploring and studying the ecology and behaviour of Arctic birds and mammals has always fascinated me.
I had always heard about the Arctic's rich and vibrant natural history and culture. I was so excited to be able to witness this with my own eyes.
The Arctic is such an interesting and exciting place. The expedition allowed me to explore many new and incredible areas.
