As CTO, my role at Trellis is to support and guide the development team in creating technology-based solutions to the challenge of deriving knowledge and information from data. This role involves strategic visioning, technical analysis and research and development.

Throughout my career I have created tools to help others discover insights that hide within complex datasets. Those insights can then be used to provide guidance to collaborators and clients allowing them to better manage uncertainty and risk in their own enterprise as well as to uncover new and exciting opportunities for innovation.

I have worked for the last 35 years as an environmental scientist developing models and analytical tools to better understand vulnerabilities in natural systems. I work with Boards, Executive Teams and Managers to develop stronger frameworks to conserve and protect natural systems. Over the years this has involved a range of leadership, strategic planning and advisory roles across private industry, government and the higher education sector.
