Paul is a Senior Research Associate in the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol where he has applied expertise in biostatistics and epidemiology to modelling the impacts of diverse environmental phenomena, such as alcohol-use and critical periods of acute stress, on epigenomic variation in population-based human studies. He has deployed advanced AI/ML methods in this research through collaboration with leading computer scientists. Throughout his doctoral and post-doctoral career, Paul has worked extensively with large international consortia pooling epigenetic analysis across studies and research groups, contributing projects on the impacts of smoking, air pollution, and birth weight on DNA methylation patterns.
