Wow! Ten years ago, in our little cottage in England, you showed me a pile of papers, photographs and maps taken a long time ago of caves in northeast Greenland. For decades, the significance of these caves had gone unnoticed and overlooked. However, you immediately recognised the scientific importance of these papers, but knew the problem was always going to be convincing the right people of their significance.
Well, after all these years, and after all your hard work, you’ve finally done just that!
Not content with a team making an IMAX film (@ancientcaves) about you and your work and your recent Professorship at the University of Innsbruck, you have just won an esteemed scientific FWF Start Grant to take your Greenland Caves Project (@greenland_caves) to the next level and beyond!!!
I am immensely proud of you Gina. You really are the biggest achiever I have ever met. Congratulations G. You absolutely deserve all your success. Not bad for a girl from Great Wyrley, Cannock, who as a child first went inside a cave with her mom on a family holiday to Cheddar in Somerset.
