Dr. Edie Widder : Introduction

My name's Edie Widder and I am a senior scientist at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution which is on the east coast of Florida. A research scientist is someone who asks questions, and then explores answers by forming what are known as multiple alternative hypotheses. Then we set up experiments to test these hypotheses. You can never prove a hypothesis, but you can disprove it. So we prove many, and the one that you are left with is the most probable.
