Charles Cousin is Bellamare's President. He participates in the design of all systems of the ISIIS instruments, using CAD modeling, drafting, and mechanical analysis tools. Charles also manages manufacturing and is responsible for final assembly of the imaging system vehicles and smaller imagers.
Charles started his career designing manned submersibles and now focuses his activities helping scientists developed custom oceanographic instruments.
He holds a Master of Science in Engineering in Naval Arcitecture and Marine Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and is an alumnus of the Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne.
Cedric Guigand is Bellamare's Field Specialist and Applications Engineer. He is the inventor of the ISIIS Optical system and plays a key role in the development of the technology and its applications, orchestrating efforts to develop robust automated image analysis solutions. His background in fish biology and a proven track record in new technologies and engineering makes Cedric an asset for field research.
Cedric holds a Master in Science in Marine Biology from Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne.
Dr. Marina Murzina is Bellamare's Images Analysis Specialist. She has a Ph.D. in Theoretical Astrophysics, particularly pattern recognition in the observations of Supernova radiation and a M.S. in Physics from Moscow State University, specializing in Neutrino Physics, Supernova gas dynamics, structure of the shock waves in the collapsing stars, Plasma Physics and Nuclear Physics.
She has 15 years of Business Development and Project Management, and 20+ years of experience with digital signal processing, speech recognition, pattern recognition, logical algebra and scientific computing. She has led Research and Development projects developing hyper-spectral imaging, video tracking, logical algebra, Radio-Frequency analysis and network optimization, and worked on image processing, data mining, and parallel methods for a variable bit-width hardware design (FPGA and super-parallel DSP).
The ISIIS technology was originally developped thanks to the vision and initiatives of Dr. Cowen and his team at the University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Bob Cowen is now Professor and Director of the Hatfield Marine Science Center at Oregon State University. His research interests are focused on larval fish and the plankton communities upon which they depend. Bellamare is lucky to count Dr Cowen as a friend and advisor.
