Tell us about your work/research. What kinds of things do you do?

I worked for 20 years for survey operations worldwide.
Surveyor for a coastal survey and environmental costal studies in France was my first experience. Seafloor mapping with MBES and SSS, water/sediment/bio sampling, commercial diver, for 6 years.
Then I get on board for a Deep shipwreck search for 11 years. Search and salvage with custom SSS and ROV rating 6000m depth. Playing with treasure all over the world was great!!
I couldn't stop the wreck search and salvage so I worked for Ocean Infinity for 2 years, using Hugins AUV and ASV boats.
Today I want to specialize in the autonomous world with iXblue and became a Drix pilot 2,5 years ago. Love that!
