Jack Darcy is a doctoral candidate at CU Boulder specializing in Computational Biology, a burgeoning field of study that combines statistics and life science to answer some of biology's most pressing questions. Jack is currently preparing for an expedition to Antarctica, where he will study cryoconite holes, or ice holes in the glaciers of Antarctica's dry valleys. In this interview, Jack voices his excitement and his anxieties of what this voyage to the bottom of the world will bring, and what it means for him as an early career scientist.
