Description

From her teaching position at National Taiwan University, Haojia Abby Run is studying nitrogen-related pollution by fossil fuels and fertilizers and warning people in Taiwan of its damage to the ocean. A female Asian oceanographer, who grew up in China’s one-child policy era, Ren is on a mission to encourage other women to choose scientific careers and find life balance. She feels a responsibility to discuss discrimination too – her professor’s belief that girls were only good at exams and could not do research. She advises: you want to observe yourself every day; think about your strengths and how to utilize them. (Recorded 12 December)
