Scott Greeves

Mind Tap

Scott uses running, rock climbing, surfing, kayaking or any other outdoor pursuit that happens to become available, to get out in nature. Studying for a M.S Biology degree, he is interested in how we, as humans, perceive nature and the benefits it provides. With a background in Climate Change, Scott recognises the need for humans to consider themselves interconnected with natural systems and consequently is a bit hippy. Scott was proud to compete in the 2016 UK Olympic 1500m trials and is still pushing to break the 4 minute mile barrier. New to KISU in 2019, he works on a Science Radio series called 'Mind Tap'. Combining his outdoor interests with a passion for de-stigmatising mental health conversations, Scott is currently investigating student-athlete mental health and also the teaching of the Dutch Iceman Wim Hof. 

This week on Mind Tap, Scott Greeves takes on the freezing challenge of the Wim Hof Method, as he tries to reconnect with nature and his own mental wellbeing.

In Idaho, farmers have been taking advantage of solar power. Solar power, or power obtained from sun, is a renewable energy resource and offers an alternative to fossil fuels, which when burned produce greenhouse gases and other pollutants that are harmful to both people and the environment. However, Idaho Power is proposing to change its solar net-metering program, which could jeopardize the financial viability of new solar projects. This week on Sustainable Idaho, hosts Rachel and Scott explore the changes to Idaho Power’s net metering program and what it could mean for everyday Idahoans.

Why do so many student-athletes report symptoms of anxiety and depression? This week on MindTap,with the help of athletes, a coach and an Athletics Director, we investigate how student-athletes balancetheir sporting and academic commitments for their mental health.
