Program Manager ,
Paul has been practicing in the water resources sector for over 25 years and is currently Program Manager, Utility Research and Innovation, for Liquid Waste Services, Metro Vancouver. His role is to identify, develop, and evaluate advanced technologies, the very best of which will be selected in creating a more sustainable wastewater utility that better integrates the interests of communities it serves.
Connecting insights from many areas of science and engineering, Paul builds relationships and forms an innovative culture within teams, involving multidisciplinary experts from industry associations, universities, select private-sector companies and federal agencies to develop innovative solutions. Much of the work focuses on maximizing the recovery of resources from waste streams and making existing treatment processes more effective through advanced physical, biochemical, or thermochemical means.
Paul holds applied science degrees from the University of British Columbia in Civil and Water Resources Engineering, as well as a degree in public administration from the University of Victoria. Paul’s passion for living more sustainably has him volunteering his time to a local nature conservancy and he has designed and installed an off-grid solar system for his tiny cabin on the Sunshine Coast.
