Paul Hsieh and The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
In April of 2010, Paul Hsieh, a research scientist, readily stepped up to an opportunity to provide a service to the public that pulled him away from his work, that pulled him out of his environment. This was not something that's in his job description, but it was a way for him to make a tangible contribution, and as it turned out, he made a significant difference. Paul's activities in the oil spill reflect well on him personally, as well as the National Research Program, and as well, public servants in general. This video describes Paul's use of quick and creative thinking to solve a difficult and pressing issue.
