As Deputy Director of Education Management for the Faculty of Medicine, Paul is responsible for supporting the strategic direction and operational of education within the Faculty of Medicine, with particular responsibilities for postgraduate education, innovative projects (including bids and tenders), communication, financial management, risk management and collaborations. Paul is a member of the School of Medicine's Management Board.

One of Paul's key responsibilities is leading the operational and strategic management of Imperial’s collaboration with Nanyang Technological University, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) in Singapore. Having been involved from the very conception of the project in 2009, Paul managed the project  through to successful fruition in August 2013 when LKCMedicine opened its doors to its inaugaral cohort. Now in its operational phase Paul continues to manage the collaboration as part of his remit and is responsible for the London Office of the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.

More recently, Paul has been heavily involved in the setting up of the Health Sciences Academy, a collaboration with Brunel University London and Buckinghamshire New University offering a comprehensive, high-quality range of flexible courses to meet the postgraduate training and education needs of healthcare professionals in North West London, the UK and worldwide. Paul is a member of both the Strategic and Operational Boards. 

Paul is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Management Institute and has broad experience at senior levels in higher education strategic management, operations and administration, having worked at both institutional and faculty levels across a range of HEIs.

Whilst his responsibilities are currently aligned to general HE management and transnational education in particular, his background is in educational quality management, governance and regulatory issues.

Paul has undertaken education management consultancy in addition to his substantive posts in the areas of quality management, faculty development and management information systems.
