Dr shanna Mcclain is the Disasters Program Manager for NASA Earth Sciences Applied Sciences Division. We talked about being an academic, being the first in her family to go to college and to travel outside of America. We have an open discussion around woman in science and the societal pressure on woman, its really fascinating. We of course talk about NASA, her role there and her story from growing up in Florida to studying her PhD, suffering from depression, living abroad and climate change. A wide ranging conversation indeed!She’s brilliant obviously, but she is also a tenacious, resilient, fantastic person to sit and share a wine with.
