Go To College, Study Fish...
By Tim Romano
I won't say I had a bad college experience by any measure, but if I could do it all over again I might just take the path Tom Detmer (my wife's cousin) is taking at the moment. Tommy as we like to call him is getting his PhD with the University of Colorado and CIRES here in Boulder, Colorado. The video below explains exactly what he's tackling and what most of his work consists of.
Sounds like a pretty good way to spend some extra years in school. Getting a PhD and fishing a ton along the way. Now, I'm not sure I have the stomach for however many years it might take to get a PhD, but am...
...very appreciative for the work my alma mater and Tommy are putting into better understanding how humans are impacting ecosystems and what we can do going forward to manage them better.
Enjoy the video.
