VP Research & Innovation
A graduate of UBC and Université Laval in mechanical engineering, Peter has worked in a research and development capacity in academia (UQAT, McGill) and industry (Metso, Comminution Reimagined) that include stays at the JKMRC and the Canadian Space Agency. His research efforts have contributed to the development of DEM methods to simulate tumbling mill charge dynamics, steel media wear prediction methodologies as well as a few patent applications related to wear measurement, charge motion measurement, microwave assisted drilling and stirred mill technologies. Peter has authored or co-authored over 200 technical communications covering innovation, IoT, sensor development, wear stirred milling, mechanical design, microwave assisted breakage, energy recovery, mobility, wood products, space mining and pedagogy. Currently, Peter is VP Research and Innovation with Rampart Detection System looking at expanding the use and application of electric field and magnetic field sensors IP portfolio mainly in the mining industry.
