APECS webinar on work + life in the Himalayas

On the second anniversary of the Gorkha Earthquake, I gave a webinar on my time based in Kathmandu for the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS). It was primarily a research talk, but targeted towards early career researchers who may be contemplating a non-traditional position (i.e. not a post-doc or a tenure-track position). To keep the talk interesting I also got to talk about mountain biking, being in a Kathmandu cover band, and my personal experiences in dealing with the earthquake.

Its also my first webinar, and I have to admit that its a bit disconcerting to talk to 40 or so people without any feedback or visual clues as to how you’re doing. If you’re interested, the presentation and audio can be seen here:
