Science out in the open
Anson Mackay studies the effects of climate change on freshwater ecosystems. His work often takes him way out to areas like Lake Baikal in Siberia, but openness in his work is not limited to geography. He understands his privilege as a white male professor at a prestigious university. He is an advocate for more open access to scientific information. He also supports efforts for gender equality, increased diversity and inclusion of ethnic minorities and the LGBTQ community. Don’t believe us? Check out his Twitter! We got pleasantly caffeinated courtesy of the staff at Nude Coffee Roasters at Spitalfields Market. The lovely tunes featured are the work of The President Lincoln. Go and buy their music from Bandcamp!Finally, thanks to Ans and his partner David for showing us around their ‘hood. The drinking was fun, the morning after a bit less!
