Johnson focus of Science Trends’ ‘My Science Life’ feature

Scott Johnson, a professor of tectonics and structural geology and director of the School of Earth and Climate Sciences at the University of Maine, is the focus of a Science Trends “My Science Life” feature. “I have a wide range of interests in the general fields of tectonics, structural geology and rheology,” Johnson wrote. When asked what advice he would give to others pursuing a career in his field, he said “Find something in the Earth sciences that excites you and then dedicate your professional life to pursuing it. … You never really know where you will end up in a career or in life, but if you find something that genuinely excites you, and you go after it with passion, chances are good that it will take you someplace rewarding.”
