Manfred holds a master's degree II from the University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier III (France) and a master's degree from the University of Quebec at Rimouski (Quebec-Canada) in physical oceanography and applications. Manfred's research work focused on modeling using data from sensors installed on merchant ships between Dos Santos (Brazil) and Le Havre (France) and on salinity in James Bay (Canada) using data from mooring (ADCP, CTD, pressure sensors, etc.).
Vishwa earned his Master of Computer Science degree from the University of New Brunswick in 2023. During his master's program, he worked with the Ocean Mapping Group to develop frameworks for hydrography in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science. Before starting his master's degree, Vishwa worked as a Machine Learning Engineer for a speech recognition company and as a Credit Risk Analyst for a Credit Rating Agency after obtaining his Bachelor of Computer Science Engineering degree in 2019. Vishwa enjoys keeping up with the latest articles on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.

I have master’s degree both in Geomatics engineering (Istanbul Technical University, Turkey) and Geography (Université de Montréal). In Geomatics, my research focused on geodesy and specifically studying geoid determination and evaluation by the satellite and in-situ data. I continued my studies to investigate the sea level changes of Blacksea using tide-gauge and satellite altimetry data.
Théau Leclercq graduated from the University of Québec at Rimouski (UQAR-ISMER) in the winter of 2022 with a Master's degree in oceanography with a specialization in physical oceanography. His research topic was on the Gaspé Current, and more specifically on observations and processes of upwellings and downwellings on the edge of this large current.
He also holds a bachelor's degree in hydrography and the IHO Cat.B certification, which he obtained in July 2019 thanks to the new training program offered by the University of Western Brittany in partnership with the SHOM school.
With a rich experience of 27 years as a technician in the automotive field. Mr. Guimond is now proud to be part of the CIDCO staff He joined the team in August 2022 as an Equipment Technician and Storekeeper.
In 2008, Dominic obtained a DEC in biomedical analysis and began a career as a laboratory technician in microbiology at the Rimouski hospital. During the 13 years he spent in this position, he had the opportunity to work on the implementation of a new computer system, which made him discover a world full of possibilities.
In the fall of 2020, he began studying computer science by correspondence at Université Laval. Dominic quickly developed an interest in Python programming, artificial intelligence and relational databases.
In December 2021, he joined the CIDCO team.
Rimouski at the forefront
