John Meyer, a design expert at Robinson Seismic, talks about his career and some of the benefits of working in science research.


I've always enjoyed the creative side the research role, developing something new, designing something; it’s always challenging and always changing. With the training I have I can work with a scientist and help solve their problems of whatever they are working on.

Scientists are very creative, and usually the better the scientists the more creative their minds tend to be. Science is definitely helped me understand people that I work with a lot better. What their goals are, what they are trying to do, where they are trying to go with their research. It just gives you a good understanding of how the world works and how everything in the world works.
