Risk Reduction: Lessons Learnt | DAY 1 | 3:25-4:40pm

Russell is Director of Research at the Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia (OERA), where he coordinates projects in geoscience and tidal energy research. In 2008, Russell led the environmental impact assessment for the Fundy Tidal Test Centre (now FORCE) in Nova Scotia, and has since undertaken strategic environmental assessments for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy in the Bay of Fundy and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Mr. Dmytriw works closely with FORCE and the Nova Scotia Department of Energy to develop projects that address fundamental technical and environmental challenges to the emerging tidal energy in Canada.
