Australian living in Tasmania
Nicole Hellessey is a PhD student at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Hobart, Tasmania. Nicole is looking into how Antarctic Krill will adapt and change their physiology (specifically their oil content and composition) due to Climate Change. Nicole hopes to understand what will make the krill fishery more sustainable in the future and under different climate scenarios.
Nicole wants to improve her leadership attributes and policy writing skills while on Homeward Bound so that she can assist the krill fishery moving forwards under her recommendations. Homeward Bound will be Nicole’s second trip to Antarctica but her first setting foot on the continent.
