The glacial biologist

For glacial scientist Joe Cook, finding a way to contribute to the challenge of climate change led him to give up a permanent, full-time academic job to take on a more diversified portfolio career. Although less stable and secure, the role not only allows the 31-year-old to work in some of the world’s most breathtaking environments, it also offers him something much more satisfying: the freedom to have a positive impact on the world.
