I have completed numerous projects for several high-technology firms which are located here on Vancouver Island, on behalf of their clients who are located on all seven continents. These projects usually involve solving an applied mathematics problem in a real-world or engineering setting. Usually, the firm has exhausted all of its contacts in Asia, Europe and North America and has concluded that the problem is unsolvable. These solutions permit these firms to compete globally and hire locally, including several hundred graduates of both the University of Victoria and Camosun College.
