Australian Professor 102 Gets to Continue Working

Australian Professor

David Goodall is a scientist at Western Australia’s Edith Cowan University; he is also a whopping 102 years old! It was decided that due to safety reasons he would have to work from home.

After looking for a better solution for Mr. Goodall, the university found an office closer to his home so he will still be working on ECU campus as an unpaid honorary research associate. He has worked there for over two decades and as an Ecology Scientist and has been a scientist for over 70 years with over 100 research papers under his belt.

David Goodall also worked in theatre as well but recently had to quit due to not being able to drive himself to rehearsals anymore because of his declining vision. For more on Mr. Goodall Click here.
