Internet Research Specialist, UK
Paul has experience in the field of internet research and computing, dating back to 1978.

He joined the BBC in 1995 as an information researcher. As the internet grew in significance, Paul was able to blend his technical knowledge with the realities of his work in journalism. As a result, he was able to devise unique, innovative strategies that have led countless researchers to evidence they would never have otherwise found. His ideas continue to shape the way professionals conduct online research and investigation.

Joining BBC Academy as a trainer in 2000, Paul developed face to face, virtual and online training courses in OSINT related subjects. He also offered consultancy to programme teams, solving issues related to investigation, whilst sharing vital new skills with his colleagues. He worked with leading programmes like BBC News, BBC World Service, Panorama, as well as local & national radio.

In 2022, Paul became a senior journalist with the BBC News Data & Analysis unit, bringing his skills to work on many stories relating to the war in Ukraine, the spread of Covid and many other important areas. He continues to train and collaborate with many programme teams across the BBC.
