Episode 99 - Firecracker Fern, a Childfree Scientist who’s Visited Antarctica
Dr. Fern Wickson is an Australian citizen who has been living and working in Norway for 15 years.
With a PhD across natural and social sciences and a keen interest in how we think about, talk about, and enact the relationship between humanity and nature, Fern identifies as a transdisciplinary ecologist. Her work aims to advance sustainable and resilient futures for the whole community of life on Earth through understanding and facilitating interactions between science, ethics, and politics in environmental conservation and management.
Fern is currently the Scientific Secretary of NAMMCO (the North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission) - an intergovernmental organization that provides advice on the conservation and management of whales and seals. Previously, she has worked as a Research Professor of environmental governance, leading a group on the sustainable and responsible development of emerging technologies (i.e., biotechnologies and nanotechnologies).
As a Lead Facilitator for Homeward Bound, a global leadership initiative for women in STEMM, Fern has participated in the largest all-female expedition to Antarctica, twice. She is also a yoga and meditation teacher running her own studio, The Peaceful Wild, in northern Norway.
When she is not working, Fern enjoys hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, reading, and hanging out with her pets.
