On this week’s Studio 1: We cross to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to talk to the world’s only blind oceanographer Dr Amy Bower

Matthew Layton and Sam Rickard present Studio 1 - Vision Australia Radio’s weekly look at life from a low vision and blind point of view.

On this week’s show…

Dr Amy Bower is a physical oceanographer at The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. She specialises in the measurement of underwater currents.

Amy talks about the challenges she faced as she lost her sight in her twenties, the practical difficulties of working as a scientist when you’re blind and the remarkable support her employer has given her.

She also talks passionately about her work. If you’re not fascinated by the movement of water in the cold murky depths of the ocean, you soon will be!
