Andrey digs out Andrea Isgro
Safety Officer and Cook

Hi! My name is Andrea Isgro and I currently live in Ely, Minnesota. This will be my sixth summer season in Antarctica, my second season with the ITASE traverse. I will be the person responsible for cooking hot, delicious meals for the team members and I take great pride in my work. I have worked as camp cook in the deep field both in Antarctica and Greenland. cooking dinner for the teamThree years ago I spent nine months "wintering" in Greenland with three other people, so I know what it is like to live in a small space with very few people for extended periods of time. I worked as a Science Technician during my winter which gave me a better appreciation for the climate research going on in Greenland and Antarctica. I look forward to another fun season on the "Ice" and learning more about the current science shaping our world.
