Toby Musgrave has been teaching courses in European Humanities at DIS since 2010. He is the author of 12 books and numerous articles on the subjects of garden and plant history and design, and is a fellow of The Society of Antiquaries in London. In addition, Musgrave is also a very active and adventurous scientist who between DIS semesters travels on expeditions to remote parts of the world – from the Arctic to the Antarctic. In this capacity, he has recently extended his skills through training both as a Submersible pilot and Surface Officer.
Toby Musgrave comments:
“Between semesters, I work as a lecturer in the expedition cruise industry. The ships are small and the objective is to explore and study the natural world in the remote parts of the world – from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Submersibles are new technology in the expedition cruise world, and I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of eight to be trained both as a Pilot and Surface Officer in Curaçao. One of the things I am still getting my head around is that when we dive a new site, say in Antarctica, we will literally be going where no human has ever been before. That’s an exciting thought.”
Congratulations on becoming a Submersible pilot and Surface Officer, Toby!Back to all news
