School of Trades and Technology

Ian initially trained electrical/mechanical engineering (B.Eng., M.Sc.), and has a variety of industrial experience in hardware, systems, and software design across a diverse range of industries, including telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, scientific, and special-purpose machinery.

He re-trained in biological sciences obtaining a Master of Research degree (M.Res.) in Analytical biology in 1998 and, more recently, a diploma/PGC in the restoration of natural systems (UVIC, 2019). His main interests are currently in the design of low environmental-impact and regenerative technologies based on ecological principles, and in habitat restoration/conservation.

Ian believes strongly in education that is applied, transdisciplinary and hands-on, in an environment that cultivates critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration throughout.

When not playing outside Ian can be found pursuing interests in music, dance, and theatre.
