Karen Romano Young

Karen Romano Young is on board E/V Nautilus as a Science Communication Fellow and is a writer and illustrator whose work often focuses on ocean science.  Her Humanimal Doodles comic appears regularly in Odyssey, the science magazine for kids. During the Windward Passage expedition, Karen will be a communications fellow aboard E/V Nautilus, talking ship-to-shore about the explorations Hercules and its partner Argus are making in the deep ocean. She's sending comics back to shore to tell the story of her journey.
