Andrew Haigh SUT-US Mentor
Born in Yorkshire, England, Andrew holds a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Geology and Materials Science from the University of Sunderland (UK). After working offshore as a scientist for 8 years, in year 2000 Andrew & family relocated to Houston to establish Gardline Surveys Inc. a geohazard consultancy service, that in 2018 became Ocean Geo Solutions.

Andrew’s primary profession is a marine geophysicist; however, Andrew has a wealth of offshore marine survey and ocean science experience.

A fellow of the Society for Underwater Technology and global award winner, Andrew also chairs the SUT educational outreach effort for schools and colleges across the greater Houston area and beyond, bringing professional and academic ocean scientists into classrooms to share knowledge with students and our future professionals.

Something about me:
"In addition to running a Geohazard consultancy company I also own and run a radio control vehicle business with a big eBay store and a YouTube channel."

The best advice I’ve received…
"January 2020, to my wife. There is a nasty virus starting circulating in China, we need to prepare for a pandemic. We should stock up on food, consumables and masks."

What can I contribute as a Mentor?
31 years of hands on practical experience in offshore science, plus a world of other experience.

Preferences and availability:
I am willing to mentor 2 students or young professionals about 2 times a month during weekdays or weekends, remotely or in person. However, the frequency and length of mentoring sessions will be an agreement between Mentor and Mentee.
