Long Ago and Far Away: Three “Summers” on a Remote Antarctic Island

“One of the most unique experiences in my life – three austral summers on a small island off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula – opened my eyes and mind to a future in science that would have never emerged without my time on Seal Island.” Brian Walker, PhD

Brian Walker, PhD is Professor of Biology at Fairfield University. He studies how Magellanic penguins (a small species native to South America) respond to stress and changes in their environment. In his lecture, entitled “Long Ago and Far Away: Three “Summers” on a Remote Antarctic Island,” Dr. Walker discusses his early career as a graduate student and early-career researcher.

His lecture is presented in conjunction with Helen Glazer: Walking in Antarctica (Bellarmine Hall Galleries, February 2–March 16). Learn more about that exhibition here.
