Paul’s responsibility is to develop Faculty and School education portfolios in line with the University Education Strategy. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, led research seminars on European identity and difference at the University of Massachusetts and published conference papers for the Higher Education Academy.

His research interests centre on the re-consideration of established practices by way of unconventional means, and experimentation and speculation regarding temporality and time in the creative process.
