Susan Bates has always been interested by the physical world and especially the ocean. She remembers standing on the beach as a kid in North Carolina wondering where the waves came from. Now, she gets to predict what the ocean might do next as she focuses on global content modeling at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, looking at the effect of the interaction between the ocean and atmosphere on the climate. Susan talks about that career path, doing oceanic research in a landlocked state, and learning to overcome impostor syndrome. (Recorded 11 December 2018)
