David Duffy, PhD
Botanist and Ecologist

We asked each of our scientists to give us their thoughts on their professions and what they think the future holds for humanity.


What would you recommend for students wanting to pursue a similar career?
Get involved in as many internships as possible. Be open to opportunities that may divert from the road you think you have chosen.

What do you like best about your profession?
Waking up in amazing places. Walking or swimming where I know I am not at the top of the food chain.

What makes you most fearful for the future?
That we will blend both cultures and environments into one monotonous worldwide uniformity and we won't know what we have lost.

What makes you most hopeful for the future?
Children.
