President and CEO

Paul has over 25 years experience in financial/economic risk management, risk measurement practices and the mathematical modeling of systems. Since 2001, Paul has lead an interdisciplinary team of researchers in Canada with a focus on microsimulation modeling methods, multidisciplinary economic systems analysis, infrastructure evaluation, fiscal policy and population-health studies.
