On this episode, marine conservation scientist Dr. Lekelia (Kiki) Jenkins chats to Dr. Chris Parsons about reducing turtle by-catch in fishing gear and the challenges facing technological innovators that don’t come from a position of privilege. They also talk about Dr. Jenkins’ career, including how she “danced her PhD” and how she was as a role model (and statue model) for the “If she can see it, then she can be it” exhibit - which highlights female role models in STEM.
