Speaker Biographies:

Paul Givens: Paul has over 21 years of experience in the design, construction, and management of some of Canada’s largest and most important energy and pipelines projects. His full biography can be found on the Eventbrite listing below along with the team member’s biographies.

Chad Nedohin (Mechanical Engineer): Chad is a highly talented engineer with a background in numerical analysis including FEA and industrial pipe stress analysis. His practical field experience from oil sands and midstream industries includes high pressure piping, extremely hot piping / equipment, fatigue, creep, vibration, failure analysis, and high strength materials.  Chad’s field experience coupled with his numerical and analytical skills have established him as a formidable, recognized, and sought after specialist in numerical stress/strain analysis and computer simulation of elasticity-based problems requiring fast, practical solutions for immediate field implementation.

Jeffrey Yeo (Piping Lead): Jeffrey is a senior designer with 25 years of detail engineering experience and is on the cutting edge of terminal engineering and design practices.

Omar Araji (Electrical EIT): Omar is new grad from the U of A Electrical Engineering program who has participated in recent engineering challenges as part of the Tytec Team, and he will relate some of his experience being a new member of an experienced team in high stress, time pressured engineering situations.
