Vincent Auger is the Information Technology and Navigation Manager and a ROV Supervisor at the Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility (CSSF) in Sidney, British Columbia. Vincent entered into marine technology with a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Victoria, and while software engineering and data management continue to be his principal interests, his passion to learn and continued collaboration with ocean technology experts have allowed him to gain a wide set of skills in electrical and mechanical ocean systems. The diversity of the challenges and the requirement to be a proficient generalist is something he finds especially rewarding about working with CSSF and the ocean research community.
Vincent joined the CSSF ROPOS team in 2003 and — amongst several other expeditions and projects — he has been involved with the planning, installation, and maintenance of the VENUS, NEPTUNE Canada, and OOI RSN cabled ocean observatories.
