Kirsty Dick

Kirsty lives in Edinburgh, Scotland where she studied an undergraduate degree in History and most recently, an MSc in Marine Systems and Policy. Her passion for history and adventure led her to join the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust for the 2018-19 season at Port Lockroy, living on the Antarctic island for four months with three other people during the austral summer. She is currently conducting a research project with the University of Edinburgh, exploring how tourism and fishing vessels can be most effectively used to contribute toward ocean observations and data collection in the Southern Ocean. Kirsty has worked with Antarctica21 since 2019 and also guides in the Arctic during the northern summer, enjoying the wonders of life at the ends of the earth.
