Paul graduated from the University of British Columbia. He came from an interdisciplinary academic background with forestry and applied biology while he also developed a strong interest in GIS. During his exchange term in the Netherlands, he helped a local non-profit working on chimpanzee conservation to map the forest change of part of the project area. He believes that GIS is a powerful tool in communication that eventually contributes to the effort of environmental conservation.
