Much of Paul’s work focuses on contemporary microbiological methods, particularly collection, processing, and sequencing of genomic activity of microbial life in the Great Lakes, specifically harmful algal blooms (HABs). He has also spent considerable time investigating the movement and buoyancy of Microcystis sp, a primary member of HABs.
He received his B.S. in Geological Science with a concentration in Oceanography from the University of Michigan in 2013 where he also continued research on harmful algal blooms (HABs) and the coral disease known as black band disease (BBD). From 2015-2018, Paul worked as a research associate in the DeLong Lab at the University of Hawai’i.
