Laura Robinson

Laura Robinson grew up in the South West of England, spending her summers in Falmouth, a small town on the coast of Cornwall. After her student training in Cambridge and Oxford, she spent three years at the California Institute of Technology and was lucky enough to travel all over the world collecting and analyzing samples to help her understand how the Earth and climate system work. She has used tropical and deep-sea corals, river and ocean water samples, marine sediments and rocks, and, most recently, ancient ice from Antarctica. Moving to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 2006 felt like moving home, she said. The Massachusetts town of Falmouth, where she now lives, has similarities to its British namesake: a beautiful coastline and a welcoming atmosphere. And the time it takes to fly back to London is about the same as it takes to drive across the U.K.
