Occupation Professional Chemist, Professional Biologist
Location Langley, BC, Canada
Introduction I am a resident of the Township of Langley, BC and have an Interdisciplinary PhD in Chemistry and Environmental Studies. Professionally, I am a Registered Professional Chemist and a Registered Professional Biologist and have been appointed to the Roster of Approved Professionals by the BC Ministry of Environment’s Director of Waste Management as a Standards Assessment Specialist (Contaminated Sites Approved Professional). My area of expertise is the investigation and remediation of contamination and the assessment of contamination on human and ecological health. I also serve as a technical specialist in areas including: industrial chemistry; sources, fate and transport, and biodegradation of chemical contaminants; effects of contaminants on natural systems; and ecosystem restoration. My graduate research was in the fields of Chemistry and Environmental Science and involved improving the availability of high-quality multidisciplinary scientific data for use in environmental decision-making. Coincidentally, one of my original research cases was an examination of the field of climate change. As such I have been reading the literature on climate change since the early 1990s.
