Paul is a Senior Research Fellow in Energy & Climate Policy at the UCL Institute of Sustainable Resources (UCL ISR). Paul’s research focuses on policy and economics for climate change mitigation, energy, and innovation.

Paul is currently co-ordinating (with Professor Paul Ekins) the EU Horizon 2020 Project INNOPATHS (Innovation Pathways, Strategies and Policies for the Low-Carbon Transition in Europe), which examines a range of economic, technical and social options and implications for decarbonisation in Europe. He is also a Senior Researcher on the Economics of Energy Innovation and System Transition  (EEIST) project, funded by the UK's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), which ams to transform decision-making processes around planning for decarbonisation in Brazil, China, India, the UK and EU. Since 2015, Paul has been Co-lead of the Finance & Economics Working Group for the ‘Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change’

Previously, Paul co-ordinated (with Professor Paul Ekins) the EU FP7 Project POLFREE (Policy Options for a Resource Efficient Economy), and was responsible for UCL’s contribution to the FP7 project CECILIA2050 (Combining Policy Instruments to Achieve Europe’s 2050 Climate Targets). He has also been involved in the Horizon 2020 projects GREEN-WIN (Green Growth and Win-Win Strategies for Sustainable Climate Action), and COP21 RIPPLES (COP21: Results and Implications for Pathways ad Policies for Low Emissions European Societies). Other previous research includes examining the drivers for success in the UK's offshore wind industry, systematically reviewing the evidence for 'demand-pull' drivers for innovation in energy technologies and systems, and examining policy instruments and mixes for pollution control, resource efficiency and the circular economy.
