Feature - Late-Life PhD, Volcanologist Lorraine Field
Olivia Arthur
Lorraine Field wasn’t unhappy with her desk job at a British telecoms company, but she wasn’t thrilled either. What did get her excited? Volcanoes!

Field went back to school in her 40’s and got a PhD in Geology. "Studying volcanoes has completely changed my life. I've got a better understanding of the Earth that we live on for a start, she said. I can't wait to get up in the morning and come in to work now, whereas 10 years ago Monday morning had that Monday morning feeling - I didn't want to go in to work. I get excited about everything that I do now - it has completely changed my life.”
