Wednesday February 8th: Mental Health in the Geosciences


Pangeo Showcase by Alex Kerney at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute

Alex Kerney is a web application developer at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute and a organizer of OceanHackWeek

Just because you work with data, you aren’t a robot, and just because you are a scientist, it doesn’t mean you don’t feel. We are going to have a discussion of the impact of stress on mental health, types of stressors, the impacts of our data on us and others, ways to communicate the state we’re in, and what does it mean to care enough to make it our career. Note: do the sensitive nature of the topic, some of the usual meeting logistics will be changed, such as only recording audio/video from Alex’s presentation, and showcase related notes and discussion happening in an anonymous document.
