After delivering the first talk of our fantastic Edinburgh International Science Festival 2016 lineup, we sat down with Dr. Sarah Clement to talk some more about GMOs and her own journey into skepticism.
Sarah has undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in
Environmental Science. After discovering she was less interested in
understanding ""the environment"" as a separate entity, independent
from society, her career has focused on examining the space where
social and ecological systems overlap. She has worked as a
researcher examining the biophysical, social and policy dimensions
of environmental problems since 2002.
Sarah was born and raised in the US, where she awkwardly grew up in a small Midwestern town as an atheist and a natural skeptic. It wasn't until she moved to Australia, however, that she discovered there was not only a term for her constant questioning, but an entire movement. She became active with the Perth Skeptics as one of its organisers. She now resides in the UK; and after her lifetime tour of the colonies, she likes to think she's returned to the motherland.
