In his 15 years of experience in coastal engineering, Paul has worked in all phases of project development—from data collection to construction. As a senior coastal engineer, he’s managed projects related to coastal structures, wave modeling, and flood risk hazard analysis.
Often, Paul works on large-scale coastal flood studies for FEMA, and he’s currently part of a team that’s helping FEMA grow and adapt its coastal program for the future of flood hazard assessment and communication. He’s worked on environmental impact assessments, wind/wave studies, wind/wave load calculation, and other applications of field data collection for beach construction, land reclamation, and more.
Paul’s passion is for helping communities plan for and adapt to our changing climate. When he isn’t estimating sea level rise inundation levels or assessing infrastructure vulnerability and developing strategies, he might be continuing his education with graduate-level courses in climate change, policy, sustainable energy, or risk modeling. In his free time, you’ll probably find him skiing (in the winter) or hiking (in the summer).
