He is a Geography Association consultant and fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and is currently training as a Field Studies tutor with Rayburn Travel. Paul is an avid user of Twitter, and blogs regularly. He is a season ticket holder at Exeter Chiefs Premier Rugby, and his ambitions in retirement include cider and pie making.
I have always been keen to promote departmental work with an international theme, and was delighted last summer to be involved in a project linking my school with students in Ecuador. The venture was set up by Neil Emery, who has has organised two previous projects in Ecuador, visiting tribal groups and delivering technology workshops to pupils at local community schools. Further details of his achievements are detailed on his own IMS article.
