> and Adjunct Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at
> Columbia University.
> Olivia Judson, who explores the intersection of science and society,
> focusing on such controversial issues as the actuarial use of DNA
> and the potential to grow human organs. Dr. Judson has presented
> science issues on television many times, most recently when she
> appeared in an episode of PBS's "Nova" about DNA connections to
> evolution. She has written a weekly blog on evolutionary biology for
> the New York Times website, called "The Wild Side." She is currently
> a Research Fellow at Imperial College in London.
> Hans Rosling, co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation, which
