Tion Uriam is from the Republic of Kiribati, a small group of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. He has a diploma in Geospatial Science from the University of the South Pacific in Fiji, and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Surveying) (Honours) from RMIT University in Australia. Previously, he was working with Ministry of Fisheries as a GIS Officer for over 10 years, but is now working for the Ministry of Communications Transport and Tourism Development as head of the Hydrographic Unit, of the Marine Division. Upon returning home, Tion wishes to further promote and raise the profile of hydrography and to encourage more people to be interested in this field, especially, the younger generation.
