Paul is a structural engineer at Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) and works on a wide range of structural systems such as buildings, bridges, and special structures.
Educated at Cambridge University, Paul worked in the UK for Flint & Neill on various projects with WilkinsonEyre Architects as well as complex tall towers. He also worked for Watson Steel on the fabrication and erection of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge (also by WilkinsonEyre Architects) which won the UK Building of the Year Award 2002.
At SGH, Paul’s work has expanded into a broad scale and type of projects on the cutting edge of both structural systems and materials. He focuses on developing innovative methods of design and construction using techniques of digital fabrication and has patents associated with his design work.
Paul is a lecturer at MIT to the graduate structural engineering students and architects in the Fall semester. He also has an interactive app for the iPhone and iPad called “Structures: a visual understanding” that focuses on a design and qualitative, rather than analytical, approach to teaching structures.
He is a licensed structural engineer in six US states, one Canadian province, and is a chartered engineer in the UK.
