Kevin Arrigo Ph.D.
Chief Scientist on the Healy

Were you interested in Science in Elementary school? If so, what kind of Science?

“Yes. I loved bugs, snakes, frogs and fish. One time, as a First grader, I was asked to come to the Fifth grade classroom to show them all the animals I had collected, that inspired me even further.”

How many years of school did you need to become a scientist?

“I had to go to school for 22 years! A long time, but I loved it.”

Have you always been interested in the ocean?

“Yes, I’ve always loved ocean animals, in particular. I had lots of fish tanks growing up. One Christmas morning I woke up to find my small goldfish inside a large aquarium.”

Which do you like better, the Arctic or Antarctica?

“Currently, I like the Arctic better because the environment is changing. That is why we are here studying once again.”
