In the first episode of the new year, Sarah speaks with Ferdinando Boero, Professor of Zoology at the University of Naples Federico II. Fun fact: Nando was one of the inspirations behind the project, and his love for jellyfish is reflected in our podcast logo. There's even a song about him by Frank Zappa!
In this conversation, Nando reflects on reductionism in ocean science and feelings of "physics envy", plus his long-term contributions to policy-making about the oceans, both globally and within Europe. What can he teach us from his experiences at the science-policy interface?
