      Yes, I do travel sometimes for work. However, I also enjoy travelling for leisure as much as I can as I always believe it is important to better understand the world we live in. Travelling is one such way we can accomplish this.

      I started off with ecology as it is a subject that gave me an understanding of the relationships between living organisms and their environment. However, I very quickly realised the need to understand these relationships on a much larger spatial scale and seeing our planet through very large satellite images helped me achieve just that.
