His key strength is finding evidence-based insight to inform strategic decision-making. Paul has worked on complex projects in science and education, both in a research capacity and consulting for not-for-profit clients. He holds a PhD in theoretical astrophysics and approaches real-world problems with innovation.
Before joining Nous, Paul performed data-intensive research into breast cancer risk at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. Prior to that he was a postdoctoral research fellow with the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics and The University of Melbourne, where he modelled large-scale structures in the early universe and optimised strategies to detect them using new-generation technology.
Paul holds a PhD in Astrophysics and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) from The University of Melbourne.
Paul is an outdoor enthusiast, relishing zen-like moments in wilderness. When not dangling from a rope halfway up a cliff, he can be found in suspended anticipation of Neal Stephenson’s next novel.
