Inspired by finding practical solutions to technical challenges, Paul has worked as a research and development engineer across several industries. The last 10 years focused on developing devices for medical use and biomedical research.

Quickly adapting to new challenges, a skill refined over the past 30 years, Paul’s career began studying chemistry while training and working as a laboratory technician. Over four years he operated in both laboratory settings and in the field, travelling around New Zealand and to Antarctica monitoring greenhouse gases, carbon monoxide, methane and carbon dioxide.

Paul then completed a degree in mechanical engineering returning to a research role investigating the impact of domestic buildings thermal performance on occupant’s health. Paul subsequently moved to industry, developing numerous commercial products from fibre optic components, to navigation lights for the shipping industry, to vegetation control and fruit handling equipment. 

Since completing a PhD in bioengineering in 2014, Paul has applied his mechanical and electronic engineering skills and experience to creating solutions for healthcare challenges in research and clinical settings.
