      Hi hannah,
      The furthest I’ve been is probably to work on some oil reservoirs near Calgary, Canada. That’s about a 9 hour flight. I bet some of the other scientists can do better though…..

      Hopefully within a year or so I’ll go to work on some volcanoes in Ethiopia. It’s not as far as Canada, but a lot more exciting and interesting!

      Hi hannahisawesome,

      The furthest I have been to do research is Jamaica (10/11 hour flight, 5 hours behind the UK), but I have been slightly further to go to San Francisco (13 hour flight and 8 hours behind the UK) to present my work at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting which is held out there every December.

      The timezone in San Francisco was hardest to deal with for communcating with home as it was 4pm in the UK before I was getting out of bed, whereas Jamaica is essentially a meal behind the UK
