After graduating from Dalhousie University with a Master of Science in Probability and Statistics, he came to Japan to study genomic data science at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Paul currently acts as Chief Science Officer at Tupac.bio, which is a biotech startup that he co-founded in 2015 (see www.tupac.bio). In addition to teaching and mentoring at the university level, Paul has taught English as a second language and tutored junior high and high school students in math and science. He is excited to join the KAIS team to teach the STEM A science class this term.
