Leslie Roberson

I'm an ocean explorer passionate about finding little solutions to big complicated problems

Science isn't arriving at an answer. It's a never ending process of learning, asking better questions, and developing tools to tackle problems that might have many answers. In a time when the world is feeling increasingly chaotic, science is a language we can all speak. While it won't provide answers to all of our questions, it provides a toolkit for making sense of the world. Science energizes me because it makes me powerful, and also relaxes me because it shows me how trivial I am.
