A Roundtrip Journey off the Career Track: Having a Successful Career Despite Your Best Efforts

Abstract: Although career tracks in science and engineering are often depicted as straight and smooth, many contain detours, side journeys and interruptions. In the end, these detours not only influence who we are, they can make us better scientists and engineers. In this presentation, Dr. Ladbury tells the tale of how his detours took him to far-flung locations from the Himalayan mountains to the African Savannah and eventually back to a rewarding career in radiation physics.
