Dr. David Risk

Professor, St. Francis Xavier University

David delivers societally relevant science at scale. He and his team recently completed the largest bottom-up oil and gas measurement study of its kind – in ANY country – as they measured the methane emissions of over 7000 sites across six major oil and gas producing regions in Canada. The resulting datasets – which have been downloaded 6500 times across Canada, the US and the EU – will be crucial for improving Canadian inventories and drafting regulation to achieve reduction targets within our country, and around the world. Critically, David and his team have now given us an independent baseline against which to measure the ESG claims of oil and gas producers!
