ND-ECI: Science Driven. Human Inspired.

The complexities of science are so rooted in data and theory that they can obscure the personal side of what scientists do. But ask the right questions, and a different perspective will emerge. When talking with faculty from the Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative, what came through were stories of compassion, wonder and even heart ache for the science that’s become their life’s work.

ND-ECI is excited to release the first set of audio stories in our "Science Driven. Human Inspired" series: 

DR. PATRICK REGAN 

Death and mercy in Mother Teresa's Calcutta | Climate, conflict, competition & compassion

DR. ELIZABETH ARCHIE

A day when even the termites were beautiful...

DR. DIOGO BOLSTER
