Mikael Attal, Geomorphologist at the University of Edinburgh, UK

I am a Senior Lecturer in Geomorphology at the University of Edinburgh. I study the shape of landscapes, rivers and sediment, and I travel to places that have interesting problems to solve, both for teaching and research. In particular, I work in tectonically active areas, which are typically areas with big mountains and steep and powerful rivers, along which people are trying to live.

Because scientists tend to travel to places where tourists don’t necessarily go, our experiences are often very unique, in a good and sometimes in a bad way! For long, I have been trying to find a platform to share my experiences, and I am on Twitter for example: https://twitter.com/mickymicky06s

But my most recent experience required something a bit more substantial. It is not every day that someone ends up drugged and robbed while visiting a capital city! I will start with this unfortunate story today, but am hoping to follow with more positive experiences soon! I hope you will enjoy reading about these.
