Steve Hall, Society for Underwater Technology & Professor Rachel Mills, University of Southampton

In Podcast 4 Steve Hall interviews leading oceanographer Professor Rachel Mills, Dean of the Faculty of Environmental & Life Sciences at the University of Southampton, UK. Professor Mills talks about diving to the mid-ocean ridges on board research submersibles such as 'Alvin' and the Russian 'Mir', a life in science, and the new opportunities made possible by remote operated vehicles, new sensors and autonomous systems. She suggests that gender equality is well underway in ocean science, but that the challenge we still need to tackle is ensuring opportunity for people from ethnic & cultural minority backgrounds too - our community is very 'white'.
