GEBCO Scholar Andry Rasolomaharavo is from Madagascar where he works at the Ocean State Secretary. It is a new department freshly created in Madagascar, in 2016; under the supervision of the Ministry of Marine Resources and Fisheries. Andry manages a service in charge for the Coordination and Planning of the maritime space. His work is mainly based on Marine Spatial Planning MSP. This work is actually combined with GIS Manipulating.

Adding to that his main background is marine ecology. Andry earned his master's on ecological monitoring in 2014 at the University of Antananarivo, the Faculty of Science, the Department of Animal Biology. He assessed the state of vitality of coral reef ecosystem on the eastern coast of Madagascar, facing investment projects, through case studies (mining, tourism, port infrastructure). For the moment, this is also a biannually monitoring survey that he is doing in Madagascar.

For future perspective, Andry is looking for a Ph.D. opportunity. He is open to a broad range of subjects covering Ocean bathymetry. He is eager to grow his professional career.
