Troy Juniel is the USAP Cargo Supervisor for the Antarctic Support Contract. Troy began working for the US Antarctic Program in 2006 as a seasonal worker and has held a variety of positions which have included spending three winters in McMurdo. Before becoming cargo supervisor, Troy advised scientists how to ship hazardous cargo which includes everything from chemicals to lithium batteries. Troy continues to work directly with the scientists as the USAP Cargo Supervisor to ensure their science equipment is shipped securely from the United States to McMurdo Station and then out to field camps, as well as its return shipment back to the United States. He also ensures science samples – whether they are ice cores, biological specimens or dinosaur bones – are safely returned to the United States.
