Canadian Geographic - - EXPLORING CARTOGRAPH­Y - —As told to V.H.

I would have to say John Oliver, re­search pro­fes­sor at Cal­i­for­nia’s Moss Land­ing Marine Lab­o­ra­to­ries, has in­spired me the most. Shortly af­ter we met, he in­vited me to go to Antarc­tica with him, and that trip is what re­ally got me into this area of re­search. I later got into scuba div­ing, which was chal­leng­ing be­cause I had ac­tu­ally burst both my eardrums as a child — some­thing my fa­ther had failed to men­tion to me my en­tire life!
