The reason to do science

Jackson, Christopher Aiden-Lee

Christopher Aiden-Lee Jackson is a scientist at Imperial College London and researches the Earth’s structure, landscape, and its evolution. In his opinion, scientists have to care more about informing their findings to policymakers. He also argues that classic academic metrics are an insufficient way of measuring scientific impact. Instead, the research community should adopt more of a qualitative approach to identify whether findings induced a societal change.
