Dr. Albert Lin’s Twitter bio describes him as ‘Explorer and UCSD Research Scientist’, which, to us, sounds like he’s basically a modern-day Indiana Jones. By day he’s teaching students at university in San Diego. But then, after the textbooks have been packed away, Lin grabs his backpack and binoculars (sorry, he doesn’t have a whip or wear a Fedora) and dashes off on an exotic adventure in a remote corner of the world in search of lost cities – much more fun than marking essays.
