Some people need crystal balls to see into the past or predict the future – but not Elisa Bonnin. She just needs seashells. Well, seashells and an almost-PhD.
Elisa expertly explains to an audience of non-PhDs how she uses microscopic seashells from animals called Foraminifera to uncover the history of ocean acidification, temperature change, sea level rise, and ice ages for the last million years.
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since your last chemistry class – if you want to learn about some science, Elisa is ready to teach you.
