Brandon Maingot was born and raised in Barbados, and completed a B.Sc. in Geomatics Engineering at the University of the West Indies in 2015. It was there that he was introduced to the field of hydrography among other methods of observing and processing spatial data, specializing in terrestrial observations. Brandon felt an innate attraction to the offshore aspect and was recommended to apply for the GEBCO scholarship by his professor, Dr. Miller. He has experience with data processing software, and is keen to further develop such skills whilst at CCOM.
