Rugged and Raw: Australian scientist pledges to work till last breath
David Goodall was adamant when authorities of the Edith Cowan University told him he posed safety risk.
An Australian scientist, David Goodall, 102, has vowed to continue in his profession until he takes his last breath.
The centenarian who has worked for twenty years as a faculty member at the Edith Cowan University in Western Australia frowned at the institution for saying he has over stayed his welcome.
This resulted in the university granting him permission to stay as long as he want after a successful plea, Punch News reports.
According to other reports, Goodall has produced more than 100 research papers in ecology since he joined the institution.
The decision of the school management concerning letting him go was because he was considered a safety risk.
Steve Chapman, the vice-chancellor of the university expressed joy that the scientist has been allowed to continue with his role at the institution.
