Can a Marine Biologist work from home

Can a Marine Biologist work from home?

Now Marine biologist, it’s been pretty difficult working from home. I mean, can a Marine biologist work from home?

Absolutely. I think there’s this huge misconception that to be a Marine. Well, I think we’d all love to spend a lot of time outside, but actually, there’s this misconception that. In a Marine Biologist is spend all their time diving, but really there’s, there’s lots of different data that we can get our hands-on, that we don’t even have to leave our offices to attain.

So there’s, you know, for example, the research that I’ve been doing has been a big analysis of all of the published data on plastic in Marine sediments globally. So what we’re trying to answer is where is plastic going in operations? What is the ultimate sink of plastic pollution? Because we know that. A huge amount of plastic is entering oceans.

There’s only a certain amount that can be accounted for floating. And so we want to work out where it’s going, and this obviously has implications for our understanding of how we manage habitats. Is it being ingested? And so that’s. Essentially meant I’ve never had to leave home. All I’ve had to do is just go online, collect all of the data from these papers and then do an analysis.

And this is, of course, you know, research in Mo the Marine science sphere. And so, yeah, you don’t, you don’t have to leave home at all.

What is Polar Thigh

What is Polar Thigh?

What is Polar Thigh: What led to everything going wrong with the leg? So I had a condition called polar thigh, mostly on my left and a thigh. And that is it’s fairly common amongst more women than men actually doing really long—polar expeditions. And there’s a lot of or the walls, rather doctors kind of a bit unsure about what causes it and why.

And they’re really, the best explanation we have for now is it’s kind of like a severe child. And obviously, staying in the call makes it progressively worse and asked the skin is trying to heal. So be sorry, I jumped a step. Miss a step. What happens is you have these ulcers on your leg. They’re tiny, to begin with, and then they basically start to grow.

So you’re like, Oh, that doesn’t look that great. I’ll cover that up. And then it gets bigger and bigger and bigger. And the reason they kind of keep growing, if you like, is they have what doctors call the reperfusion element. So as the blood flow is going back to the air to [00:01:00] try and heal, it actually causes more inflammation, more, he gets damaged, and it keeps growing.

So there are pictures of my injury. On the, on my Instagram account, and they’re pretty horrible. And you can see how it’s. So we started off being really small, and I only had one little sheet of granny flats, which is a kind of dressing we use on big expeditions where you can just quite fit.

It’s like a slab of dressing, or you peel it off, whack it on, and that’s not going to go anywhere until you kind of finish gets home. You’ve got a long shower. And I was running out of that. So I like looks a bit like a patchwork quilt near the end. But everything came undone. I had a really, really benign for, in a white type fell over nothing.

And as I landed, I heard and felt all the ulcers crack open, basically split open into one big. Leg wound. And it was; it was absolutely horrific. I’ve never heard a noise [00:02:00] like it, and I lay there. You were looking up nothing. It was a white eye and just crying. I mean, it was the most fun of physical pain I’ve ever been in.

And then, at that point, I think I had about a hundred, 150 miles to go, something like that. And it was like, wow. I, I’m still going. And by that point, I went from skiing really well. I mean, everything was going so well. As I said, I was ahead of the world, place, the world record pace, and suddenly I’m skiing and dragging a leg behind me.

Sorry. I do think I explained at the beginning, I’ve got a huge sledge behind me with my tent or my food supply, so everything I could need. So that’s not like, and I’m suddenly dragging this leg on it. It, it just became so, so difficult. Even things like putting the tent up and dine, which in high winds is a fast, speedy job.

You’ve got to be on it. And there’s lots of, kind of Europe. You’re dying. You’re putting snow here and building snow walls there and trying and doing that with my leg open. Like that was. Awful. [00:03:00] But yeah, there was, I was never, ever stopping that never, ever entered my mind.
