LiveScience has posted an interesting interview with paleoanthropologist Sandi Copeland. It’s sometimes nice to learn a little bit about the people behind interesting finds.
What is your favorite thing about being a researcher?
It is thrilling to discover something that no one else has discovered before, whether it is an actual fossil or the result of an isotopic analysis of fossils. Of course field work is fun, but it is perhaps even more rewarding when the data are finally analyzed and organized in such a way that the results can be viewed in the form of graphs. The fun is finding the patterns in the graphs.
