It’s time for the next edition of From the Shores of Sea-Bird Scientific to highlight another associate for the month of May! This month, we’re showcasing Logan Guillet, Assembly Technician at Sea-Bird Scientific! Logan has been with Sea-Bird Scientific for over two years, and comes to us from the University of Washington with Bachelor’s Degrees in Physics, and Earth and Space Sciences. Learn about his journey through ocean science and Sea-Bird Scientific below: 

What first got you into ocean science? Who/what inspired you?

While at the University of Washington, I took a course from the School of Oceanography called “Global Ocean-Human Culture”, which gave me a new appreciation for the vast reach the oceans have (always had) throughout society, ranging all the way from art to war.

What do you think is important for people to understand about ocean science/research?

It’s important for people to understand the significant impact that the health of marine waters has on the well-being of all life on Earth, not just those near the coasts. Trade, commerce, natural resources, and weather, are aspects of our daily lives that are heavily influenced by the oceans, just to name a few. For this reason, we must learn everything we can through science/research to better care for ourselves and the planet.

Why did you decide to come to Sea-Bird Scientific?

I joined Sea-Bird Scientific because I wanted to be a part of a company that’s a leader in expanding humanity’s knowledge of the natural world, and that’s working to protect marine waters, which is all reflected in Sea-Bird’s Scientific’s vision: “Powering science-based decisions for a better ocean”.

What’s your role at Sea-Bird Scientific?

I build the engines along with certain sub-assemblies that control the float’s up/down movement through the ocean. I also “hull” each float, meaning I combine the tested engine with batteries and the CTD inside of the titanium hull. Additionally, I perform the 3 main tests for a completed float before it can be shipped: dock test, ballast test, and the overnight leak test.

What’s the best part about working at Sea-Bird Scientific?

My favorite part about working for SBS is knowing that the work I do has a tangible, real-world impact in the form of scientific data that are used to better understand our oceans, and ultimately, to improve our planet’s health.

We’re grateful to have you on the team Logan! Thanks for all of your contributions and support from all of us at Sea-Bird Scientific.
