He co-developed some of the best published methods for maintaining power flow in and multiobjective optimization of radial power distribution system operations using intelligent systems. Solo owns and operates his own engineering and math research and development companies, Maverick Trailblazers Inc.TM and Solo’s Solutions.TM Solo previously served honorably as an infantry officer (occupation) and platoon commander understudy (regiment appointment) in the Canadian Army Reserve, worked in 4 engineering and 2 nontechnical entrepreneurial positions, and worked in 17 engineering or math employee or consultant positions. Solo served on 300 international program committees for research conferences, 3 editorial advisory boards for books and journals, and 2 technical committee task forces for a professional association. He was the CEO or acting CEO for 4 geographical associations of federal and provincial political parties and was a city committee representative. Solo's primary research interests are in theory and applications of new fields, mathematics theory and applications, intelligent systems theory and applications, as well as politics and public policy. He is skilled and experienced in intelligent systems design, control systems design, digital electronics design, analog electronics design, mechatronics design, firmware design, software engineering, and DSP design. Solo was educated in electrical engineering, computer engineering, intelligent systems engineering, aerospace engineering, mathematics, physics, nutrition, exercise science, economics, entrepreneurship, etc. by University of Waterloo, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Cornell University, University of Colorado Boulder, Carleton University, University of Saskatchewan, IEEE, etc. Solo was trained by Royal Canadian Regiment Battle School, Royal Canadian Infantry Corps, Canadian Army, and six private fight training clubs. Solo is a fellow of the British Computer Society. He won two outstanding achievement awards, two distinguished service awards, and three achievement awards from research conferences. He has been listed in numerous editions of Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century, Dictionary of International Biography, and Canadian Who's Who. In his spare time, Solo has become an extremely experienced civil rights activist and corruption whistleblower. He has been covered by the media hundreds of times for his civil rights and progressive activism. His activism has caused significant change in numerous organizations. Besides his activism, Solo likes doing combat sports, extreme sports, and physical training.
