By combining his two greatest passions, science and the outdoors, Joseph’s work as a glacial microbiologist at the University of Sheffield has helped him develop a deeper understanding of the world around us.
His studies delve into the effects of microbial growth on sea-level rise. “It’s very satisfying scientifically,” he explains, “because there are massive questions to answer, which impact on the real world. We are already seeing the effects of a changing Arctic in the mid-latitudes.”
And the impact that has on him? “Being rich to me means having freedom to have a positive impact on the world around me and the people around me.”
