Paul teaches on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules on the geography and environmental science degree programmes. He has a strong interest in the use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and the integration of remote sensing and GIS.

Research interests

Paul is interested in the use of GIS and Remote Sensing to address a wide range of societal issues. His research focuses on the development of risk models for poverty mapping across large spatial scales. He has a particular interest in using socio-economic datasets to map communities at risk of both fuel and food poverty. Paul has also a keen interest in developing the use of GIS in Schools. This work has received a range of national and European awards and Paul leads the “digital earth Centre of Excellence” at Ulster University. Other interests include the use of remotely sensed data to map and monitor environmental processes and the fusion of remotely sensed datasets to extract features in urban and agricultural landscapes.
