Pat Wongpan 

Quantitative Sea Ice Biogeochemist | Ecologist – Australian Antarctic Program Partnership 

A quantitative sea ice biogeochemist/ecologist at the Australian Antarctic Program Partnership Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania. Pat obtained his PhD from University of Otago in New Zealand, was a David Crighton fellow at University of Cambridge, and was a JSPS Postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University, Japan. 

Pat first came to Tasmania to attend a conference and it wasn’t long before he made the move to begin working and living here. In 2020, Pat was a co-convenor at the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research’s annual conference (SCAR 2020). Pat hopes that events such SCAR 2020 will inspire others to return, work in Tasmania and join in on our quite pursuit of the extraordinary.
