Hi I’m Matt, Communications Electronics Technician from Adelaide, South Australia.
I created this blog to share with friends and family my experience working at Davis Station, Antarctica. I will be working here as the Station Communications Technical Officer for the 2018-2019 summer and 2019 winter – the 72nd ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition).
I am fortunate enough to have travelled abroad with my previous job but this is my first time working for the Australian Antarctic Division and visiting the great white continent. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to experience living and working in Antarctica and contributing to the important science we are here to support.
