Paul is a Senior Teaching Fellow at the Graduate School. As a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Graduate school he is involved in tutoring, course development and creation of Web resources. As a qualified Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach he also runs workshops for Imperial students to identify their strengths and apply these to doctoral research challenges and beyond. He was awarded the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2015 in part for establishing the Graduate School GTA training programme.

He graduated from the University of Surrey with a BSc Hons degree in Biochemistry, did a part-time Masters in Immunology at King’s College London and a PhD in Pharmacology at Imperial College. 

As a post-doctoral researcher he investigated steroid signalling mechanisms at the Randal Institute before moving to the Nuclear signalling laboratory in the Biochemistry department at Oxford. Moving back to London, to Imperial College at the Hammersmith, Paul investigated the molecular mechanisms of dendritic cells in Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and became increasingly involved in assisting in the supervision of PhD and MD students and in lecturing to the medical students.

His interest in learning and teaching led to him studying and gaining the Certificate of Advanced Student Learning and Teaching in 2004 and becoming a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He completed a part-time Masters in Education in 2013, passing with Merit. His research interests include: development of expertise, the teaching-research nexus and use of educational tools to enhance teaching training.
