Paul has created educational materials for undergraduate and graduate students, teaching on topics including scientific writing, statistics, coding, professional development, and cognitive psychology.
Paul is passionate about scientific communication, education and mentorship. He is a strong supporter of open science (data, code and publications), and aims to make his work and resources readily available to other scientists and the wider public.
This site hosts and links academic materials that Paul has made to help other students and academics. These resources include presentations, teaching materials, code and papers.
