I particularly appreciate projects where a combination of investigation, collaboration, research, and education are involved. With today’s fast pace of change, it’s crucial to foster a collective understanding of the potential benefits and limitations of environmental data.

Bryan is a science practitioner with more than 20 years of experience and is trained in conventional practices including physics, meteorological forecasting, weather prediction, and atmospheric modelling and has applied his training to various projects including the development of the Canadian transportation emissions models Port Emissions Inventory Tool (PEIT) and Marine Emissions Inventory Tool (MEIT) for Transport Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada, respectively.

Bryan has applied these models across Canada, primarily to assist port authorities to develop scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions inventories and forecasts for a variety of reporting programs. These works have recently included assistance with port and marine carrier carbon neutral planning to 2030 and beyond.

Project-related work, including environmental impact assessment and environmental permitting, has involved many industrial sectors including oil and gas, power generation, mining, pulp and paper, metallurgy, and transportation. Bryan and his team are actively engaged with bioenergy, helping industry clients, as well as government, understand emerging biomass conversion technologies and related performance metrics for carbon as well as criteria for air contaminant emissions.
