Description

Having an idol is important in science so you can see yourself doing something similar. Gregory Cutter met his idol, Jacques Cousteau, when he was an assistant professor at Old Dominion University. As an oceanography professor, he worked with different people and often international teams on board ships for field work. He talks about how the field has changed over the decades from modern technology making it harder to get away even in the middle of the ocean and how growing diversity in all ways has lead to new perspectives.
