Graduating with first-class honours in Civil Engineering from the University of Adelaide in 1992, Paul has cultivated a diverse and rich career spanning university research, engineering consulting, and significant positions within the State Government.

Paul’s early career was marked by a deep dive into the technical realms of pavement and geotechnical engineering, undertaking post graduate research into finite element modelling of expansive clay soils, a common problem soil in the Adelaide environment. He then worked as a Consulting Geotechnical Engineer for 5 years, gaining real world experience in all aspects of geotechnical engineering, before joining the Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT).

At that time, the Department was a National leader in pavement design and field and laboratory material testing. By the time he left DIT in 2016, he had risen to the role of Managing the Pavements Engineering Unit, which include pavement designers, materials engineers, the materials laboratory and pavement field testing group.
His comprehensive skill set covers the spectrum from investigation, analysis, design, and materials specification, to construction, environmental, commercial, and performance aspects of pavements and road projects, gained from numerous civil and road projects across urban and rural environments. His technical acumen is further bolstered by representation of DIT on National Austroads committees and providing inhouse and external training to all levels of industry. This included a stint as the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) Chairman for various pavement related Units in their online Masters degree course.

In his expansive career, Paul has demonstrated his capability by delivering top-notch pavement engineering services to numerous major and minor road projects. His portfolio includes significant projects like the Northern Connector, Darlington Interchange, Southern Expressway Duplication, and the South Road Superway, as well as numerous other infrastructural enhancements.

Paul’s experience extends beyond technical execution to encompass high-level contractual, commercial, strategic policy, asset management, and operational aspects of roads. His understanding of the impact of heavy vehicles and his involvement in strategic planning and policy development highlight his comprehensive approach to infrastructure management. His commitment to progress is evident in his active participation in research, development, innovation, and his contributions to postgraduate research and software development.

His managerial prowess was evident during his tenure as the Manager of the DIT Pavements Engineering Unit, where he not only provided technical guidance but also handled administrative tasks across various domains.
