A globally recognized leader in wind loads on solar racking systems, having directed hundreds of studies on the subject. These studies have changed how wind loads are calculated for both roof-mounted and ground-mounted solar, including new provisions in wind loading and wind tunnel testing standards. He has 25 years’ experience as a wind engineer. After completing aerospace engineering degrees in Canada, he completed a PhD on vortex wind loads on load-rise structures at Colorado State University. He has been with CPP since 2000, where he is a principal and a member of the board of directors.
