My involvement in this project

I have worked as a toolmaker in research and development for many years and it is the knowledge I have gained in this field that has helped to design and manufacture the prototype parts for the sampling systems on the probe.

What does being in this project mean to you personally?

Being involved in this project is a big deal for me! To be part of a scientific project that is cutting edge is very exciting, and as I have a little bit of the adventurer in me, it will fulfil a lifelong ambition. It is a great privilege to be among, and work with a handful of people that have been to this part of the world, and I can’t wait. I am hoping to find the time to build an igloo too!

Have you been to Antarctica before?

No, I haven’t, but I am looking forward to being part of an expert team that have.
