Biographies of presenters

Paul Sutherland is General Manager of Operations at Hill Laboratories. He holds responsibility for Hill’s national facilities, operations, and associated supply chain. Originally joining Hill Labs in 2009, he re-joined the business in 2018 after a 4-year break in the pharmaceutical industry. His background spans a number of industries including dairy research, analytical chemistry, scientific instrumentation; plastics, medical device, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Paul is a part of Hill’s Environmental Impacts Governance team and has been involved in shaping Hill’s activities to better understand and reduce their environmental impacts.

Originally from California, Jessica obtained her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara with a focus on coastal processes. After taking a gap year (or two…) she went on to pursue an MSc in Environmental Science at the University of Waikato. Her research focused on the morphology of seagrass in Tauranga Harbour. Though her background may fall outside the typical realm of contaminated land, her interest in GIS applications and environmental issues has led to her present role. She is currently working within the contaminated land team at the Waikato Regional Council. The project she was given required the incorporation of coastal processes into a risk assessment for the region’s historic landfill sites, which combined two of her passions: the coastal environment and science communication.

Caitlin is a scientist at the Waikato Regional Council where she specialises in contaminated land. Alongside her day-to-day responsibilities which include identifying HAIL sites, reviewing contaminated site investigations, she also has a passion for identifying and understanding sheep dips. Caitlin has worked at the Waikato Regional Council for two and half years and working towards a MSc in Earth Science at Waikato University. Prior to this she completed a BSc in Earth Science at Waikato University.
